Another almost 500k week for Switch. Impressive



 

Less than a million until the Switch outsells the Xbox 360.

More than 8M for PS5, very good.

Switch doing stellar numbers of course.

Games I'm playing/want this year on PS5 : Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, Scarlet Nexus, Kena : Bridges Of Spirits, Tales Of Arise, Far Cry 6, Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Samurai Warriors 5, Horizon Forbidden West.

I thought New Pokemon Snap would give Switch more of a boost but I guess the stock situation probably didn't allow for it as it was already in short supply in a lot of places.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

@curl-6 To be fair, Snap's release only accounts for 2 days of sales, Maybe next week will still be just as high to compensate. Although I do agree that they are definitely still having stock issues, as well as Sony & MS.
