You have Switch as 339k on the table but 359k in the commentary. 1 of them must be a typo, yes?

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

Slow week for almost everything, relatively speaking. Just that time of year?



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

Summer is typically the slowest time of year for gaming as more people are traveling and spending time outdoors. Yes, I realize it is winter in the southern hemisphere.

Great work with the PS5 tracking. It's nice to see vgchartz get more recognition for the accuracy of their estimates. For reference sake, how long did it take for PS4 to reach 20 million?



PS5 and Xbox Series are neck and neck in America, practically within margin of error.
This could be a hell of a race to watch.

Despite how far behind the Xbox One was compared to the PS4 worldwide, it was relatively close in the US with the Xbox One only about 5 million behind. US will likely be the closest race between the PS5 and Xbox Series.
