Completely different story in my area.  Best Buy listed as completely sold out.  Not even listed on Target.  And both Amazon and Walmart marketplaces only have the scalper priced units for sale ($486-$699).



Checked Target, Best Buy and Gamestop... OLED sold out. Crazy. I'd like to have one, but meh, I'll wait till stock is normal.

Not enough data from Microsoft to show anything significantly off.

Daniel Ahmad has estimated Xbox Series X|S sell in over 8 million as of September 30. Sell in I am fairly certain means shipped and not sold to consumers. Over 8 million could be 8.1m/8.2m/etc. VGChartz sold to consumers are at 7.61 million on October 2. So a gap of 400K+ between shipped and sold.

Seems resonable enough



duduspace11 "Well, since we are estimating costs, Pokemon Red/Blue did cost Nintendo about $50m to make back in 1996"

I agree. It takes a few weeks for consoles to ship around the world and we know the Series S isn't selling out in places like Europe. At least nowhere near as fast as the Series X or PS5.
