i just noticed the front page graph is now more accurate. Nice.



[Insert arbitrary Nintendoomd comment here]

Thank you and your staff for all your hard work trunkswd



PS5 had a good week. Their Europe numbers are almost tied with Switch. Meanwhile Switch and XBox came down. I am still at the point where I can't tell if there are hardware shortages for Switch. Was the drop this week due to a shortage somewhere in supply or maybe the sales effect of PLA and Kirby are starting wear off? I can't tell. If software is the issue though, Switch has plenty more titles coming this year. Switch Sports is not far away.



Finally some more stock for the PS5.



Around the Network

There was a decent size increase in PS5 stock for the week across Europe and a little bit more than the previous week in the US.

At least in the UK, it looks like the extra PS5 stock only lasted that one week. I haven't seen any other data yet for the rest of Europe for the week ending April 23.

As for the US, week ending April 23 should be a good one for the Xbox Series X|S and PS5 as several retailers had a decent amount of stock available.

Switch now less than 10 million from passing PS4.



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

First time seeing Xbox outsell PS in Oceania in a long time. What happened there this week?

The Siwtch does have shortages but it's the easiest console to buy along with the Series S. If you wanted nay of the two today for retail you'd be able to buy one within an hour. But for the Series X and PS5 the same can't be said on a consistent basis.



Thanks, Sony! I got mine!! Been playing with it for an hour now.
