I hope after this week we start seeing some of that supposed increase in production. They said march, but who knows if they mean first week or the very last.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

I wonder when we actually know PS5's demand. Right now we have yet to reach it with it being sold out immediately after becoming available. Imagine how well they could sell if manufacturing was normal.

Everyone talks about Switch's domination in Japan but check out that domination in North America right now.



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

I was wondering how the stock situation for the Xbox series have been lately. I checked some online retailers in Sweden and the series s seems to be in stock everywhere. The series x on the other hand was out of stock except 2 retailers and they sold it for 7500 sek which would be roughly 880 usd so way overpriced.

Does the stock situation seem better anywhere else or does it still seem like a global shortage?

Series X is still sold out everywhere. Series S appears to be somewhat available in some of Xbox's less popular countries.
