I want to confirm something... Is the OLED having stock issues? Cause I want to get one, and, damn, I don't find any one... It is only me and my environment? Or is it actually more global?

Yes, the OLED from what we can tell is having supply issues. The standard Switch and Switch Lite are far easier to find.

Xbox Series sales in America are something else.



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

It looks like it won't last as the second week of April didn't have nearly as much stock as we saw for the last several weeks. Even this week saw a drop in sales in the Americas.

Do you think we will see PS5 taking back the second place in America anytime soon?

It might here and there depending on stock availability each week. Of course, it is entirely possible Sony is able to ramp back up PS5 production and PS5 will start to outsell the Xbox Series X|S everywhere. Or it is possible the really low PS5 sales in recent months will continue for a while longer.

I'd say ps5 and xbox will be seesaw-ing back and forth for another year or so
The switch will remain in the lead unless those joycon drift lawsuits catch up to nintendo and they are forces to take it off sale until its been resolved



Everything is down WoW. I guess that is normal when entering April. In spite of all that, I think XBox continues to impress. It continues to have a good lead over PS5 in the Americas each week and in Europe it's extremely close. I am actually more impressed with how XBox is doing in Europe than I am with their performance in the Americas. That is supposed to be Playstation's home turf.

No. Even if Sony were to have the same amount of silicon available, Microsoft will be able to produce more consoles as the Series S requires less silicon. And chances are MS have been willing to pay more for access to more silicon.

Microsoft also doesn't have to ship many units to Japan, and they are catching up to demand in Europe. So they are now free to ship the bulk of their units to the US. That's not the case for Sony.

But even if both companies had plentiful supply, I think MS would be neck and neck, or even in the lead in NA week by week. Even during their weak XB1 generation Sony only managed to beat them by 20% in NA console sales (as per VCG), and MS hasn't made any significant blunders this gen.
