Forums - Sales Discussion - PS5 and Xbox Series X|S Sales Remain Ahead of Predecessors - Global Hardware Oct 10 to 16

Series X|S continues to sell great. Will be interesting to see the push Forza and Halo will have for the holidays and beyond.

Could've been worse honestly, with supply how it is. In addition to just getting units on shelves, they also have to start building up a stockpile for the holiday season.



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

There also just may not have been as big of an audience for the switch OLED. Maybe the early adopters were most of the wave that was gonna buy that system at least immediately. Itll sell but I dunno if it'll be some huge permanent boost

No, stock is a huge issue, that's not debatable.

As for huge permanent boost, I don't think anyone is expecting that.

You are right. From what we've seen OLED stock was quite low and quickly sold out.

The 180-200% ebay prices pretty much confirm this.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Disappointing Switch numbers. Wanted to see it at 500k. But likely OLED stock is low. Guessing we'll get a few weeks of 300k leading up to black friday week, as Nintendo are storing up systems for the holidays.

PS5 is becoming a beast. It will be interesting to see if it eventually outsells PS4. It might even start winning a few weeks against the Switch next year as Switch gradually slows, though next year is going to be a huge year for Switch software so it may yet knock out one more dominant year.

Xbox doing well. Should be at a quarter of total XBoxOne sales by the end of the year.

It looks like most of 2022 will be supply constrained so we may not see any substantial movement till the last quarter of 2022 and with Nintendo's superior holiday season record, likely to keep it ahead of any increased production from the other two we may have to wait to 2023.

With what I'm ready shortages will continue through 2022, but should start improving in the middle of 2022, so June or July.

Agreed, but it takes time for increased supply to work its way through the supply chain so while we will see increased stock earlier than the last quarter of 2022 it may not be till then that it becomes significant, especially if they settle for a slight increase on the average first half of 2022 weekly sales and stockpile the surplus for the holidays.
