Be sure to share the Weekly breakdown article:

Despite having a staggered launch over the course of two weeks the PlayStation 5 was the best-selling console with 1,483,910 consoles sold for the week ending November 14, according to VGChartz estimates.

The PS5 launched in North America, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Korea for this week. The PS5 had a bigger launch in North America, Australia, and New Zealand than its predecessor, the PS4, while it had a smaller launch in Japan, Singapore, and South Korea.

Microsoft launched its next-generation consoles, the Xbox Series X and S, in 40 countries worldwide for the week. The consoles sold a combined 1,345,386 units worldwide in its launch week. This is a bigger launch than the Xbox One, which sold 1.1 million units in its first week, and is the biggest launch in Xbox history. 

The PS5 and Xbox Series X|S are expected to be severely supply constrained through at least early 2021 as any consoles that become available have been selling out in a matter of minutes. 

The Nintendo Switch was the third best-selling console with sales of 722,176 consoles sold. This was followed by the PlayStation 4 with 116,301 units, the Xbox One with 45,288 units, and the Nintendo 3DS with 2,198 units.

Nintendo Switch sales compared to the same week a year ago are up 142,544 units (24.6%). The PlayStation 4 is down 211,809 units (-64.6%), the Xbox One is down 33,696 units (-42.7%), and the 3DS is down 18,027 units (-89.1%).

PS5 didn't launch in Europe until November 19.

You put the Switch in 2 despite selling more than PS5 in Asia

Even without any big releases, Switch sells like hot cakes... Just like Wii.



Looks great, Xbox off to a nice start.



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 

 

This is the one time you'll be able to see an Xbox console on top in Europe.
Lightning in a bottle, ladies and gentlemen.



Epic results.  PS5 looks to be a 2-2.5M opening with Europe included.  First quarter will be an all time record assuming there will be sufficient BF/December stock.

As for NSW, here's how it stacks up against top VGC years now, its starting to take the clear lead for 46 week YTD.

Despite that, I think it is under-tracked in the US.  VGC has the first two weeks of Nov up about 45% from 2019, but this results in the first week of Nov 2020 being down from the last week of Oct 2020, which I'm not sure makes sense given trajectory.  W45 I think will bump up 30K from 170>200K, and W46 will bump up 40K from 260>300K, so current standing will end up being ~20,600.  Another 350K for Zelda week and then 1.1-1.2M for BF week gets the month up past 2M for NPD Nov.  

No idea on Europe, we'll have to wait for reports on that.  USA is becoming easier to predict though.
