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.

Playstation 5 is really strong in Europe. I think if Sony had more stock, it would sell even more.

With full stock available everywhere I bet it would reach 300k weekly



Another solid week in Japan for Sony too

EU has always been their biggest region, so it shouldnt surprise anyone if they get more units sent there than in NA or even JP

Europe also has twice the population of USA and around 7 times that off Japan.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

The PS5 outsold the Gamecube. 



Good PS5 sales overall, strong sales in EU despite a 20k stealth adjustment down from last week. Either way, stock is definitely improving. It's moved to 2nd in yearly in the UK and took 1st in monthly's there for July making it 4 months in a row. August is looking strong so far as well, nice to see.



PS5 doing well
