Sucks that PS5 & XSX are down compared to their predecessors. The shortages are really hurting them, and I'm sure it is hurting Nintendo as well. The PS5 was even down compared to last week. At least Switch & XSX were higher. I'd imagine that all three will be higher next week and definitely the week after though.

PS5 should see a decent boost in the next update. At least in Europe as the latest UK charts mentioned good PS5 stock available after a down week.

Thank you for the update! Forza Horizon 5 did a great job at boosting Xbox Series sales, even if the game is also on PC. It will most likely reach 10 million soon. Halo Infinite should help too.

Now those Switch sales are just insane.



I have a Youtube channel... A Twitter, and... Yeah.

Honestly didn't expect the PS5 to drop week over week.
Switch sales are still huge. Should continue to grow further.

There was less stock available in Europe and Japan. PS5 should see a decent boost in the next update.

Right, forgot about Japan. It had it's weakest week there.

Yeah, Japan sales were insanely low.

Switch sales are both great and disappointing.  They are down 89k YoY, but 529K is still an awesome amount.

XBox had a great week.  X|S is above PS5 in North America and is doing pretty well everywhere else too.  With Halo Infinite releasing right after Forza, I wouldn't be surprised if next week is good for them too.
