Whoa, Xbox Series actually outsold the Switch in America!



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

Common Xbox W.



Will the PS5 number on the home page be fixed?

That's not the first time.  And it should actually continue to happen with regularity as XBox Series supply increases while the Switch is now over 5 years on the market.

I wonder how different sales would be if everything was readily available.

America (and UK) is the only place where Xbox is truly popular, so they are shipping strongly. 70% of Xbox week sales this week are from USA/Canada

Switch and Playstation are popular worldwide, so their shipments need to be more spread out

My guess is Xbox wouldn't be much different while the PS5 would be above 300k at least sometimes.

Xbox is also popular in South America and Oceania.

I think that would be something like that. while the momentum really went up for Microsoft, they are still not at Sony's level but they are getting there. 

The Series S is really paying off for Microsoft, being able to produce more boxes is key right now. They did not plan it obviously but this is really turning very well for them.
