Forums - Sales Discussion - Global Hardware July 5 to July 11 - Switch Sales Increase to Nearly 350,000 Units

Well the Switch and Ring Fit Adventure got a restock in the UK yesterday and shockingly today there are still nearly 300 consoles left to buy.
Of course it'll be sold out by the end of the day.
On top of that, only one website still has Ring Fit Adventure stock.
This has mostly been the same situation every week, since November 2019 and it should stay the same until October or later.

Switch on it's way to 60 million!! Suck it, Gamevice!! ^^



PS4 is down to 51% market share, I wonder if it will drop below 50% before next gen arrives.



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

There was a thread made that PS4 would maintain above 50% market share against XBox One + Switch combined until the end of the generation. I cannot remember the year that thread came out but of course it appeared at a time when PS4 seemed invincible.



NS is unstoppable! Hybrid is the key to sell well in every season.
PS4 good, but suffering as expected in a season when people stays more outside.

I wouldn't say PS4 is "suffering", I mean it's numbers need to be viewed in context. It is a system on the verge of replacement after more than six years on the market.

Yes, I meant "suffering" in the peculiar context of PS4, selling less than in the past, but also being in one of the periods of the year when home consoles sell less, but that in PS4 case means numbers that most competitors sell in far better periods.
PS4 "suffering" numbers would be welcome by any other recent console except NS.

Oh yes I remember that. Times have surely changed. And in this case, it was for the best. 

Edit: lol I just did a quick search and this is what I found

I remember a different thread which was more recent or at least after the Switch was announced/released.

So if Nintendo's early gen sales of the Wii U (13.97m) are included, the marketshare for this Gen as a whole would roughly be PS4 48%, Switch/WiiU 31%, XBOne 21%.

True but I think including both Nintendo's current and last gen machines together is a bit unfair.
