VGChartz Methodology: Hardware estimates are based on retail sampling and trends in individual countries, which are then extrapolated to represent the wider region. This typically allows us to produce figures that end up being within 10% of the actual totals.

This data is regularly compared against official shipment figures released by the console manufacturers and figures estimated by regional trackers with greater market coverage than ourselves. We then update our own estimates to bring them into line with those figures. This can result in frequent changes often within a short space of time, but we feel it's important to prioritise accuracy over consistency.

Good week overall. PS5 itching back up to that 200k range. Xbox has also been selling well in Oceania the last month or so.

Who knows how long can PS5 keep 200k or more, one week of decent stock then next absolutely nothing.

BTW there was an NPD leak that revealed PS5 and Xbox Series X|S sales for January to May of this year. No huge adjustments, but Xbox Series X|S was adjusted down slightly and went from tracking just ahead of Switch to just behind it.

This looks like a good week. The top 3 are all up WoW. XBox took #1 in the Americas, and PS5 did decently well there too. Looks like Switch will hit 110m next week.

I'll be starting with the Japan comparison articles later this week. I like to wait for the monthly NPD report to come out before doing the US articles, and the monthly UK and Europe reports from GamesIndustry before doing the Europe articles. Likewise, I like to wait for all the monthly reports to come out before doing the worldwide articles.

This was a nice week to end the first half of the year and while stock issues were really bad during it they should get at least somewhat better during the 2nd half so excitement should pick up soon. Also the PS5 being down compared to the PS4 and the Xbox Series up compared to the Xbox One about the same amount is a neat coincidence.
