Why would inflation be a thing?  The comparison is using constant dollars.  If inflation was part of the equation, Matt would have highlighted that.  The PS5 can easily win a couple NPD months this year when their stock situation improves, the demand is there.  That can also be the catalyst for the console to beat the Switch starting in 2022.

Because a dollar today isn't worth as much as it was ten years ago. Piscatella commonly posts rather random stats that don't mean all that much once they've been put in proper context. In this case he might have said what he did about the PS5 because it sold fewer units than the PS4 in January 2014.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
