PlayStation 5 sales compared to the same month a year ago are up by 235,718 (15.9%). Xbox Series X|S sales are up by 241,746 units (21.9%) and Nintendo Switch sales are down by 169,024 units (-10.3%). The PlayStation 4 is down by 8,442 units (-48.9%) year-over-year.

Mat Piscatella said that PS5 and Series are up double digit percentage and Switch down double digit percentage over last year.

PS5 up by 15%, series up by 21% and Switch down by 10%? 

Why the discrepancies in percentages when he clearly didn't specify them.

I just don't see Switch being down only 10% over last December which had Pokemon. 

Xbox Series X|S had its best December to date and Mat didn't state PS5 had outsold the best year for the PS4, so I couldn't really have the PS5 much higher. Also the Switch was 2nd best-selling console in terms of units sold AND dollar sales. So if I had Switch really any lower it would have put dollar sales below the Xbox Series X|S. 

Plus these are Americas estimates, which includes Canada and Latin America. Xbox relative to the US performs better in Latin America than PlayStation and Nintendo.
