Yes, I know this is a day or 2 earlier than I normally post it. But it was a quiet news day, plus Spain sales numbers came out early.

Was this the last chance for PS5 to outsell Switch right?

I mean, at least I the foreseeable future. I'm sure PS5 will start outselling Switch eventually

Yeah last realistic chance for now. Mind you as we get more data there is always a chance for adjustments. Next update will include Switch OLED launch.

They sold each one they could make and yet was not good enough.

Next week should be bomb babyyyy. Hope Switch can sell around 500k. But seeing Japan COMG sales, it doesn't seem like it boosted that much.



500k seems low for NS next week. Im thinking 750-800k



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

251k being the lowest week for the Switch this year would be really impressive and above the lowest week of 2020 which was 230k. Though it's possible adjustments in a few weeks could push it lower than that. Also the Xbox Series X/S is doing pretty well right now, if it's performance in the Americas was PS5 level it could be getting weeks close to 200k.



Bad title, very misleading, the title should have been, PS5 and xbox keeps being outsold by a 4 and half year old console, before the new model just comes to market.



Oh wow almost made it on its last chance. Can't wait to see Switch sales skyrocket next week and stay high till end of the year. Could Switch sales triple next week??
