Xbox boss Phil Spencer has started that Xbox Series S sales are expected to exceed the Xbox Series X. 

In an interview with Kotaku, Spencer explained that Xbox believes the budget-focused next-gen console will sell more units over the course of the generation than their no holds barred Xbox Series X.

“I think, over the generation, our expectation would be that price really matters and that you would see the Series S sell more,” Spencer told Kotaku.

When asked whether the Xbox boss expects both next-gen consoles to outsell Sony’s next-gen PlayStation 5, Spencer revealed that Microsoft believes the holiday launch period will be dependent on the production chain of both companies.

“I think we’ll sell every unit of both of them that we can deliver,” Spencer told the outlet. “I think demand is just going to outstrip supply of pre-orders. For us and PlayStation, I think that the manufacturing supply chain is going to dictate [market] share more than anything else.”

With the Xbox Series S being by far the cheapest next-gen console, it’s an accessible entry point into the future of gaming. While the next-gen console won’t run next-gen games in ultra-high resolutions, it’s CPU performance should keep it relevant for budget-focused next-gen gamers and help Xbox Series S sales succeed.
