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.

You are right with that. It can take several weeks depending on how far they are being shipped.

Well we just finished the 3rd quarter of the calendar year so should be soon. But if you are asking about a quarter involving October, then that would be like February I guess.

So as the person posted should be within couple weeks.

Last year Sony report for the quarter you asked was on October 28th.

Nintendo 6 months release is planned for November 4th so I don't think there will be another quartely separeted.

Unless the Switch is undertracked and has a really strong holiday it seems a done deal at this point it'll be down from 2020. However it'll have a 2nd year in a row that's better than the Wii's best year so still extremely impressive.

Personally, I think that this Q3 FY will be around 5.75 (because of early shipments of OLED in time for launch, but also because it's tracking significantly higher than 2019 which was at 4.8M). 

If this is the case then Nintendo would need about 12.5M consoles shipped in Q4 for it to exceed FY 2020. Is it possible? Maybe...is it likely? Probably not. Unless Q3 is higher than I anticipate then Nintendo is going to be slightly down, likely by around 1M units. I guess we will find out soon.
