Hi Everyone, continuing with the Data analysis of the PS5, here is a look at what January could possibly look like.
First lets look at how all consoles sold during the same weeks of the PS5 Week 5-8 (these are month aligned, so we look at the NS holiday season as well)
We have that the PS5 sold very similar to the XOne and also somewhere in Between the DS and the Wii. I don't think that the XOne was as supply constrained as the PS5, but I do believe that the Wii had a similar situation, so I think we can look at what happened to the Wii for better reference.
I also think that right now companies should be able to produce more units than what they produced before, but corona might severely limit those capabilities.
Now let's look at week 9-12 for all consoles:
The XOne sold only 267K units, but I don't think these weeks will be similar for the PS5, like I said, I believe it should be more similar to the Wii. I think the million dollar question here is how much can Sony produce and ship. Without Corona I think there is no doubt that PS5 would break this record, but with limits in shipping, manufacturing, and selling. There has to be an impact still.
My Spidey sense tells me that it should be between 800-900K but that is not fun, so my bet will be for 1000K-11000K. I want the PS5 to break records.
Some of you might also be wondering what the Gap chart looks like with this new Update, here it is:
The PS4 was able to beat the PS5 for a 6th consecutive week. The PS5 still has a 228K lead.
Week 9 was 188K for the PS4 so if I want my prediction to be correct, I really hope the PS5 stops this streak and starts turning this chart around.
