Looking at our figures for 2020 we aren't that far off for most of them. Only PS4 we have off by a lot. Do you have a link to your source?

The main source is this article: https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2021-01-08-43-million-games-sold-in-the-uk-in-2020-uk-annual-report

But there's a few tweets used by Chris Dring to get the estimates for the next gen consoles.

We also have Spain numbers, but only for the next gen consoles. We probably should start having articles for Spain sales since they have actual unit numbers for software and hardware usually.

Thank you. I spotted the Spain figures like an hour ago and adjusted our figures for PS5 and XS in Spain. We were like just over 1,000 low on XS, but were high on PS5 by about 35,000. A shame no Switch figures.

www.vandal.net
is the source for Spanish numbers I'm referring to.
According to them, next gen hardware totals for the year are:
PS5:78.400K
XSS: 29.950K

Between PS4/Xbone being yesterday's news and PS5/XD struggling to provide sufficient stock, Switch is in a crucial position of being a hot product in the prime of its life, able to pick up the slack.

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