RIP international 3DS sales, though I remember you saying they would be limited to Japan now.

Switch and PS5 fought to an near impasse in Europe.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

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)

It had to happen as our 3DS lifetime sales are almost at lifetime shipment figures at this point. Famitsu still posts 3DS sales for Japan, which is the only reason I am still tracking sales there. 

I've also stopped tracking Xbox One sales in Japan.

Switch sales are noticeably down in Japan, which accounts for most of the drop from 400k-ish to 350k-ish. Considering the OLED model is aimed toward handheld users, it seems like sales are down in Japan because of the OLED model announcement.



10 million lucky people have been able to buy a PS5.

Xbox Series X|S hits 6 million next week.

.1% up is actually just kind of funny to me



PS5 is killing it in Europe as usual.



PC/PS5/Switch Lite player

PS5 is #1 in EU. EU is back to being Sonyland...(dependent on future stock). Switch being #1 in EU was only temporary during the PS4 and PS5 stock transition period. This week is just a sign of the future. I don't like current Sony, btw, so no bias, just sales.



So things go back as usual in US (PS5 vs Series X/S).

Normal for the last generation, but normal is a very relative term in North America, it's the most volatile and hotly contested of the major regions. PS4 outsold Xbox One there, but 360 sold PS3. PS5 vs XS might still be a close race there, depending on how the gen plays out.



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