Forums - Sales Discussion - Global Hardware Dec 13-19 - Switch Sales Top 75M, PS5 Tops 4M

I honestly expected Xbox X/S to do better. It would seem Sony was much better prepared for the launch than MS. Also, Series S is not out of stock in many regions around the world. Maybe Phil Spencer's expectations for it are too high, and Jim Ryan's point of view is spot on? The picture will become clear after a few months, but I can't see why would the Series S outperform the X.

On the other hand. Sony want to continue to support the PS4, but the price is way too high. They need to discontinue the Pro model and reduce the price of the base model by the next financial year in order to give it longevity

Can it really be said that the Xbox series of systems is supply constrained to explain the lack of sales? Are they really producing half the number of systems as the PS5 is being created, you would think if both were being made using similar fabrication and chipsets then production, supply and therefore the sales of the PS5 and XSS|X would be in line with each other.

Ireland seems like a good place to go if you wanted a Series S at least, very well stocked.

Crazy that the Switch sold so well this year... except for January and February. The pandemic console indeed.

What will happen when children are back to school, though?

And what do you think will happen when global economy will have fully recovered and those who were forced out of work start to earn money again?



Damn MS dropped the ball with Xbox production. It’s more week over week but they should have secured more units



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 

 

People are claiming that the lack of a Holiday Title is the primary reason why Switch sales are flat in 2020. However, I believe the bigger reason is the lack of supply, it's still extremely difficult to get a Regular Switch for retail price, the Switch Lite Stock has been plentiful but clearly far more demand for the regular Switch and people are willing to wait for the regular Switch model rather than getting the Lite.

Unlike us, video games will not be the priority.



the real question is, why PS4 and XBO are still in the graph of current gen (and Vita/3DS as well)

Isn't it time to remove them and have Switch/PS5/XBS ?

You're right if you refer to people who belong to lower socioeconomic bracket. Videogames will never be their priority. But millions of middle income earners got broke in 2019 and millions of them are videogame consumers.

While I agree on the Vita and 3DS. The PS4 and XBO are still in production. They may be on their way out, but they're not dead yet. They've still got some tread on those tires. What I'd do is take out the Vita and 3DS, put the PS4 and XBO in their place, and then insert the PS5 and XSXS in those open slots right next to the Switch.

You can also find Series S on Amazon France, and in Belgium too, so yeah, no real supply issues for the Series S, people just don't want to buy it.
