As I live in the US, that is the country I am speaking for. I cannot comment outside of that, as I like to go off of 1st hand experiences. And the case here is that there are more Series S consoles in circulation than the PS5 and XSX, as both of them are sold out but the Series S is selling more despite being available on store shelves. There can only be one explaination for that, and lack of appeal isn't it.
There is no other platform available for sale that can play the nexgen/big games . Ps4 is unavailable for purchase as is ps5 . While switch and Xbox are readily available.
