The last few weeks PS4 will manage to stay close to Switch.

Yeah I expect they will stay relatively close until the 20th when the Lite launches, no big system-selling games between now and then to my knowledge, plus a lot of people will be holding off on getting a Switch til the revision hits.

The strangest part is that although Switch have improved again the total YOY PS4 is not that far behind, after they have already peaked and are on the 6th year.

In 3 weeks the Switch will activate war mode with Switch Lite, 2D Zelda, Luigis Mansion and Pokemon coming in November. PS4 won't have a chance YOY, even with Death Stranding. But yes, still impressive PS4 sales...

Don't forget Dragon Quest 11, that could be heavy hitter in Japan.

Ps4 still doing strong, If we think the ps5 is on the horizon

I don't think PS5 is having a real effect on PS4 sales yet; it's still well over a year away and hasn't been properly revealed.



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

The calm before the storm. Switch sales are going to sky rocket when the LITE comes out.

Agreed, especially in Japan. Only thing I can see possibly limiting the explosion is if they haven't supplied enough stock to meet demand.

Aaand, it looks like there will be shortages, with at least one Japanese retailer warning customers to expect them:
