Xbox Series X|S: December 2021 was the best month in terms of UK sales


December 2021 was the best month ever for Xbox Series X|S in the UK in terms of sales: according to data consulted by Christopher Dring of GamesIndustry.biz, Microsoft’s console ended the year with better results than the launch.

The extraordinary accessibility of Xbox Game Pass, which hosted amazing games during 2021, seems to have convinced UK users over the course of the year, translating into a real kick-off to the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S last month.

“I’m still looking at the December issues in the UK, but I can say that it looks like It was the biggest month ever for the Xbox Series X|S. Yes, including release month,” wrote Christopher Dring.

Of course, the well-known issue of the lack of Xbox Series X and S consoles, linked as we know to the semiconductor crisis, could have influenced UK sales in 2021. But this crisis is still present.

One factor that may have contributed is the lack of original Sony games on the Playstation 5 this holiday season, while Microsoft, in addition to the advantageous Game Pass catalogue, has released blockbusters like Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite.
