Those are shipment numbers from that data you're using and are not the same as sold to consumers. The numbers i gave you for Spain were official for those years and were sold to consumers. The numbers we were always disscussing, at least me, were sold to consumers.

According to VGC data, France's peak was in 2017 and UK's and Germany's peak were in 2018. I suppose VGC must be based in official tracking, so ..., yes, even Western Europe peaked in 2017-2018.

It literally says sell through in the link I posted, it's not shipments.

They are. Look at the total numbers at the end for PS4 and Switch. It shows around 94M for PS4 and 32M for Switch at the end of 2018. Those were shipment numbers. 

The link says it takes numbers  "From the CESA report, sell-through data from 2012 to 2018 in many countries" but this doesn't mean all the numbers combined are sell-through. If the total amount of sales showed there put PS4 at 94M and Switch at 32M at the end of 2018 they're definitively shipment numbers.

I can totally guarantee you that PS4 did not "sell to consumers" 750k in 2014 and 900k in 2015 in Spain like it's showing that graph. Those has to be shipment numbers in case of being true.

And if it's mixing shipment numbers with sell-through numbers in some markets, then maybe that data is not that accurate after all.
