Be sure to share the Weekly breakdown article:

The PlayStation 5 was the best-selling console with 1,001,572 consoles sold for the week ending November 21, according to VGChartz estimates.

The PS5 launched in Europe and the rest of the world during this week. The next-generation console sold 723,341 units in Europe in its launch week. This is bigger than the PS4, which sold 706,948 units in Europe in its launch week in 2013.

Microsoft's next-generation consoles, the Xbox Series X and S, in its second week saw sales fall to 252,262. This is to be expected as the console was sold out in its first week and second-week figures pretty much are the same as consoles shipped. The Xbox One sold 454,423 units in its second week, however, the console was not sold out after its first week, and week two included Black Friday.

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 quickly selling out.

The Nintendo Switch was the second best-selling console with sales of 827,941 consoles sold. The PlayStation 4 sold 123,614 units, the Xbox One sold 49,361 units, and the Nintendo 3DS sold 4,311 units.

Nintendo Switch sales compared to the same week a year ago are up 228,421 units (38.1%). The PlayStation 4 is down 305,458 units (-71.19%), the Xbox One is down 48,654 units (-49.64%), and the 3DS is down 22,704 units (-84.0%).

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Probably the last week ps5 is ahead of the switch for a while. But still good sales overall and awesome that switch is up 228,000. Shows that they are confident that japan will still be there after the holidays but the west is more urgent for the holiday



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

Exceptional start for the PS5, let's see how long it can keep the fastest selling console crown. Probably going to get body-slammed by the Wii after 12-14 months like the PS4 was, but still, keep ahead of the PS4!



Series X had a good week for a console near impossible to be found.

Great open for the PS5 in Europe. Nice to see Xbox keeping it competitive in North America and Oceania.
