Nice to see XS still outpacing Xbone even with under severe supply constraints.
As PS5, now that MS have said they won't be locking away their acquisitions, I think it's back in with a shot of outselling PS4 once the chip crunch abates.



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

Xbox Series sticking admirably close given Playstation's brand advantage. Good; competition benefits the consumer.



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

We are three months away from Switch hitting its biggest deficit against the DS in the above sales comparison. Switch could be up to 15 million units behind the DS at that point.

It will be interesting to see how many people will believe that Switch stands no chance at beating the DS anymore.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Shipments

I find it ridiculous and laughable that on Installbase they post Ampere Analysis obvious bullshit numbers on the forum but call VGChartz way more accurate estimates "fake news". Pathetic.
