The PS5 is the best-selling console in the United Kingdom

Everyone wants to have a PlayStation 5. Unfortunately, not everybody can get their hands on one.

The stock shortage, which can be traced back to the microchip shortage of 2020, continues to plague the PlayStation 5, as well as other consoles such as the Nintendo Switch and Xbox Series S/X.

However, even though Nintendo Switch has had more time to ramp up its production on the account that it's been on the market since 2018, it seems like the PS5 is still king.

According to Christopher Dring, the PlayStation 5 is "comfortably" outselling all other consoles in the United Kingdom, at the moment.

Dring didn't exactly have any sales figures to back up his statement. However, he did add that the Nintendo Switch was in second place, followed by the Xbox Series S/X.

When you consider the sales figures of the PS5 right now, you can't help but wonder just how much more it would sell if Sony were able to keep up with the demand.

In terms of availability and games, the Xbox Series S/X should be outselling the PS5.

The sheer number of games that you can play on the Xbox Series S/X with the Xbox Game Pass is staggering, to say the least.

While it's true that Sony will always have the upper hand in terms of exclusives, you would at least expect people to consider getting an Xbox Series S/X.
