Week 23 Breakdown:

PlayStation 4: Up in the United States; Down in Europe, Japan, and the Rest of the World; Down overall.

PlayStation 5: Up in all regions.

Xbox One: Down in all regions.

Xbox Series: Up in all regions.

Nintendo Switch: Up in all regions.


We're in the 2nd week of June, and the Switch has officially crossed 10 million worldwide for the year! Exactly 1 week before it did it last year as it continues to maintain its slim lead over last year. Hopefully with the announcements made at E3 and a more streamlined schedule coming up will help boost 2021 towards being the peak year. Between Mario Golf, Skyward Sword HD, Monster Hunter Stories 2, WarioWare, Metroid Dread, Mario Party Superstars, SMT V, and Pokemon BD/SP as the most notable releases, in conjunction with what has already been released this year with Bowser's Fury, Monster Hunter Rise, Bravely Default 2, and New Pokemon Snap, I truly believe that 2021's lineup is stronger than 2020's. Assuming Nintendo can meet sales demand, 2021 should have a good shot at being the peak year.

The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series continue to pick up steam as they are both tracking very comfortably ahead of their predecessors.

Overall, the hardware market is looking extremely healthy as we near the mid-way point of 2021.
