The strategy of Microsoft is bearing fruit, in particular that of having wanted to launch two versions of the same console on the market which are realized even in a price difference that has a real weight on the players’ pockets.
In the period of Black Friday, the moment of the year in which all retailers give themselves to crazy joy by offering unparalleled discounts and offers, the representative of the next-gen of the Redmond house in its most performing version, or Xbox Series X , was outclassed in sales by its younger sister Xbox Series S , which was the US favorite.
The large numbers of Series S sales are already known, given that the component crisis has created the paradoxical situation in which we find ourselves now, which sees many enthusiasts unable to buy new generation consoles (both Xbox Series X and PS5 ) as they are practically unobtainable, although more than a year has passed since their release.
At this moment of crisis for the console market has put its own Xbox Series S , which thanks to its differences nze hardware and at its decidedly competitive and affordable price, is practically the only one that you can easily buy in physical and digital stores with just one click.
The unstoppable success of the Xbox Series S has also surpassed the sales of Nintendo Switch Oled , which during Black Friday also suffered the fate reserved for other consoles, although at first it seemed to be been spared. On the other hand, the shortage of stocks of the new model of Nintendo’s hybrid console was already in the air and apparently the situation will not improve anytime soon.

Obviously even the next-gen branded Sony is on the high seas from this point of view, since PlayStation 5, both in the standard and in the digital version, is practically unobtainable. It also seems that the situation will not improve much next year either.
In short, we are living in a fairly uncertain period to which even the videogame market must adapt and must meet the needs of players who still cannot have new generation consoles, for example tending to develop more and more cross-gen games and avoiding bet everything on exclusives for new consoles.
While waiting for the OLED model to be available, you can still retrieve the Nintendo Switch base model at an unbeatable price on Amazon.
