Xbox Series S was India’s best-selling console in March as console shortage continues

According to IGN India the best-selling console in India for the month of March was the Xbox Series S. Around the world consoles are selling out faster than they can be produced and distributed and this also seems to be the case in India. Customers in retail stores are looking for PlayStation 4 or 5 and Xbox Series X consoles, which are unavailable. Meanwhile it seems Microsoft is distributing more Xbox Series S consoles to India than it is distributing the more expensive and powerful Series X. An interesting quote from the IGN India article:

“Most of them showed up to buy a PS4,” says one store executive on the condition of anonymity. “When we told them it was out of stock and explained to them what Game Pass is and how many games they get access to, they picked up a Series S instead.”

It will be interesting to see how the Xbox Series S will perform in India and other countries around the world. In the United States and most of Europe the Xbox Series X seems to be the most popular Xbox console in retail.
