PS5 is confirmed as the fastest-selling console ever in the US: the data collected in April 2021 by NPD confirm the excellent performance of the new generation Sony platform on the American market.
We know that Sony is aiming for stellar sales for the PS5 for the next two years, and at these rates, this will probably materialize without much effort, obviously net of the well-known issues related to availability.
Mat Piscatella, analyst at NPD, highlighted how the problems of limited stocks are affecting the sales trend , and it is therefore even more interesting to observe the performance of the new Sony console.
Piscatella also took advantage of the opportunity to clarify that the American market is still very far from the concept of zero sum, and that therefore the higher sales of one platform do not necessarily imply lower sales for another.
As part of the same report, the analyst had also reiterated that Xbox Game Pass does not cannibalize the sales of games, but increases them : an undoubtedly curious phenomenon, but which now seems consolidated.
