Except you haven't been able to reliable purchase any current gen console for a year.
So it's a tie at best.
EHHH, I was handed the opportunity to purchase an Xbox Series X and a Playstation 5 directly from Microsoft and Sony. I skipped the Xbox, as my pc plays literally every game I'd want on it. Bought the PS5. Wasn't nearly as easy as walking into a store, but it was a smooth, easy-enough process. was as simple as going to direct .playstation .com and putting my name on the list. Waited a couple months and tada, had a time-limited link to be able to buy one.
You *DO* have to already have had a Playstation account since sometime in mid 2021, you can't make one now and use it, and you can only buy one per account AND household. They went pretty hard on avoiding scalper abuse.
