I take this to hopefully mean you're feeling better man? If so, glad to hear it. :)

Switch back above the 300k mark, and PS5 and Xbone both showing sales that would be healthy even without the supply constraints they're under, good news all around.



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

Well enough to do some work. I'm still not 100%, but making good progress. I've got a few more days of antibiotics to take.

Switch's 2021 sales are more than double 2018's for the same YTD period, and nearly 6 million ahead of 2019.
