Forums - Sales Discussion - Global Hardware July 4-10 - PS5 Sales Top 10 Million

The fact that the PS5 is selling so well while being $400/$500 is astounding. It's technically the most expensive the next gen platforms (with the Xbox Series S allowing people to get into current gen at $300) and it's still moving 200k units a week.

I was kidding with you ^^ but as for the Steam Deck, I believe in it's success yes. Not as much as the other consoles but yes it could impact something. I like Steam so I'm kind of biaised.

Gotcha, hard to detect jokes sometimes.

I could see it being successful but I don't really think that means it will affect Switch in any significant way. At the end of the day, Nintendo games are still the biggest system sellers on Nintendo hardware and Switch is the only place to play those.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

People got to stop putting the switch agaisnt the steam deck. The steam deck is gona really face the succesor to the switch. I see this as the 360 vs the ps3. Steam needs a head start to take on an establish company in the handheld market. Lets say the switch 2 comes out at $300 again I do see steam deck droping price to match it by then.

The Steam Deck is still a PC, not a console. It won't be in direct competition with any console regardless.

Some Switch lovers feel nervous. ^^

But I can understand, if PS5 doing that kind of numbers with stock issues, it will be huge without stock issues. And Steam Deck is coming...

Nervous about what?  A console can be second (or third) in sales and still be a massive success.  Steam Deck is aimed a completely different demographic than Switch owners, so that statement is immaterial.  

As a ps5 and Switch owner, glad to see them both doing well.  Both are really good pieces of hardware.

The larger point being, if the ps5 outsells the Switch, who cares?  The Switch is a massive success and we all know the ps5 will be as well.

I doubt Steam Deck will clash with Switch 2 much either to be honest, it's still kinda like comparing a PS5 to a gaming PC. They're different products for different kinds of gamers.

I do agree however that the endless pitting of Switch vs Steam Deck is tiresome and pointless.



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

Well yea I agree with that. But what I was trying to say was more of a generational separation between the 2 devices. Like the 360 was not competing with the ps2 just because the ps3 was a year behind.

Usual leadership for NS.
Excellent achievement for PS5.

As HW power is a strong selling point for both PS5 and XS, I suspect that a thing that can damage both Sony and MS is the fact that multiplats must run also on the crippled XS base model so the HW power of the best Sony and MS models is quite considerably underused.

Never understood why MS is not publishing any sales data anymore, even if Series X/S are doing better than their previous consoles launch aligned.

And what about subscriptions data, nothing??

Also, does the data for revenue includes the Xbox One?
