So before adding this weeks numbers, you adjusted last weeks PS5 US numbers down by 20k?



Japan is interesting this week. Switch is of course at the top. But PS5 isn't getting quite as bodied by it as usual. Terrible week for the Xbox Series over there, only managing a few hundred units. I wonder if there is a stock issue, given that the Series is doing better in Japan than most Xbox consoles have.



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)

Great week for all 3 consoles. Glad to see the PS5 back over 200k.



Stock is an issue for Sony.... but it has to be really hurting them at this point. MS is gaining a bunch of momentum.

Wasn't there a rumor that Sony plans on manufacturing 1M more PS4's this year? So far they've been at a baseline of 15-16k. That's not enough to hit that mark currently.



Good to see both XS and PS5 over 200k. Xbox continuing to press its advantage, above PS5 for the third week in a row.

Switch is smashing it as usual, truly a force of nature at this point.



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

I assumed that was just a confirmation that they were manufacturing more than half a million.  I wouldn’t be surprised if it was something closer to 500,000 than a million.

700,000 plus whatever existing stock they had would probably be about right.



Nice switch sales once again.
Keeping that 300k+ weekly sales.



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

Switch comfortable in jogging it's way to the 110M milestone.

I don't remember but has it beaten the PSX lifetime sales yet ?
