PS4 only beat this January's PS5 sales once. January 2018 where the PS4 sold 1.32m to this January's PS5 sales of 1.26m.

DS is entering it's final holiday before the release of the 3DS. The gap in sales has continued to widen between it and Switch with the DS selling 3.6m more units in the last 12-month period launch aligned. However this will soon end and it will turn into an endurance battle for the Switch.

XSX sales this month are substantially better than XBO but also substantially worse than the 360. The bigger thing to note is a 24.5% decline YoY, a trend that Xbox will want to reverse very soon.
