Best selling family this month (units)?

Nintendo family 69 77.53%
 
Playstation family 19 21.35%
 
XBOX family 1 1.12%
 
Total:89

Switch is no where to be found at any BestBuy within a 250 miles radius around me. It’s such a shame that Nintendo could not produce them fast enough. I am talking about the Hybrid model, of course. The Lite is easily found everywhere.

I'll venture a guess:

NSW: 2,200K
PS5: 1,800K
XBSX: 1,600K
XBO & PS4: No idea

You see! That's why I normally don't predict anything...



Signature goes here!

The NPD PR release was posted over at ResetEra. While the Switch was #1 in units sold, the PS5 was #1 in revenue and had the biggest launch month of any system ever. That would mean it sold more than 1140k (the previous record set by the PS4 in 2013) but less than 1350k.

Now to wait for more hard numbers.

In followups, Mat Piscatella also said that XBox Series didn't set a record, so it's less than XBox One sold at launch.

Supply constrained, while the Xbox One was readily available at launch. Also Xbox Series launched in 40 markets, while Xbox One launched in just 13. I wouldn't be surprised if Xbox Series sold more than Xbox One week one, but week 2 and 3 the Xbox One sold better.

Lite not carrying the load like it was earlier in the year when AC hype was at its apex.

Yep, it does make sense considering the supply constraints. I wasn't implying anything in my post (I personally own a Series X and never had a One), just giving Shadow more parameters to work with.

Damn! The ONE time where my ONE million units prediction would have been the closest to correct without going over, and I flubbed it!

I guess I won’t be taking home that showcase :(



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Yeah. I've got the Series S and have been spending most of my time with AC Valhalla. With Cyberpunk and Immortals also my list of games to play I will be busy for several months. 

It is still a shame it didn't outsell the Xbox One, but it is all about supply. The Wii U had a decent enough launch, but fell flat after that.

Your XBO & PS4 guess should have been a prediction for this month in a nutshell.

It seems like despite the "selling record", supply constraint hit the constructor hard.
