Switch outselling the PS5 in Europe is very surprising.

? Not when PS5 still have stock issues. 

Ah good point. There is probably way more switch stock. But wasn’t there news of Sony ramping up production?

The fact that 400k+ is just another normal non-holiday week with no major release for the Switch at this point is just surreal.

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

Switch still pulling HUGE numbers. 400k + in March without releases is insane.

Not only that, but it sold more than the rest of the systems combined! Switch 423,187 vs Rest 368,323. You could squeeze another PS4 there and it still wouldn't be enough to match Switch numbers.

Yea it's pretty impressive. Knowing the console still has it's original pricing, they are making a ton of profits on those sales too.

Notice how Grim Switcher is knocking on the door of PSP, but is already looking ahead toward the doors of PS360. About to make quick work of these milestones.

PSP and GBA Should be on the same door. Pretty sure Nintendo already shipped enough to be above them.

Try and find a PS5 and you'll quickly find your answer. Production is actually at good levels all things considered, unfortunately demand is just hugely outstripping it.

Switch is doing crazy well. Monster Hunter Rise and New Pokemon Snap will only help its sales in the first half of the year.

The Xbox Series is tanking in Japan. I get Xbox has almost no presence there. But this week, the 3DS beat it in Japan. A discontinued 10-year-old handheld platform beat a current gen/new release console. Wow.

Switch: 144 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)
