Be sure to share the Weekly breakdown article:

The Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console with 1,275,788 units sold for the week ending December 5, according to VGChartz estimates. The sales figures for this week include Cyber Monday.

The PlayStation 5 is in its fourth week available in North America, Oceania, Japan, Singapore, and South Korea, and is in its third week in Europe and the rest of the world. The console sold an estimated 336,274 units to bring its lifetime sales to 3,368,098 units. 

The Xbox Series X|S is in its fourth week worldwide and is the fourth best-selling console. The consoles sold an estimated 160,896 units to bring their lifetime sales to 1,817,303 units.

It should be noted the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S continues to be supply-constrained in most markets, which will likely continue through early 2021.

The PlayStation 4 sold an estimated 160,704 units, the Xbox One sold 91,009 units, and the Nintendo 3DS sold 4,559 units.

Nintendo Switch sales compared to the same week a year ago are up 92,065 units (7.8%). The PlayStation 4 is down 367,995 units (-69.6%), the Xbox One is down 275,355 units (-75.2%), and the 3DS is down 57,367 units (-92.6%).

Switch !!!



When PS4 almost beat the Series S and X....... 

And when Sony can produce that much PS4s and PS5s but can only give Japan the leftovers...... What a nice way to treat your home country! 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Ps4 launch at this point was around 2.5m units although with numbers quite similar for this week. Ps5 has a great launch. Hopefully they can produce more the coming weeks for those that want to buy one.

From the little bit of data we currently have, it looks like PS5 and Xbox Series X|S supply will be a bit more limited for the week ending December 12. But I haven't gone in and crunched all the numbers yet. Our hardware figures will likely remain a week behind where we usually are as we are waiting for more data. Holidays are the hardest time to track sales (and most of 2020 thanks to the pandemic).

PS4 might top Xbox Series X|S next week (week ending Dec 12). From the little bit of data we have PS5 and Xbox Series X|S supply is a bit more limited. At this point, just about every console shipped gets sold in a matter of minutes or hours.

I expected MS to stop producing the Xbox One and its other versions for more Series S/X.

MS stock pretty steady week over week. I wonder if that’s their plan until demand tapers off



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

 

Can't believe Xbox Series X/S only outsold PS4 globally by 192 units. That's crazy. It's clearly because of shortages of the Series. I know PlayStation is a more dominant brand, but it's still interesting that a now last-gen console barely loses to a brand new console.

And the Switch only outsold the PlayStation and Xbox so spectacularly because of shortages of the new consoles. Switch probably would've won the week regardless, but maybe only by 100-200k units if there were enough PS5s available.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 144 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)
