Forums - Sales Discussion - PS5 and Xbox Series X|S Sales on the Rise - Global Hardware Oct 24 to 30

Lack of OLED model supply holds Switch massivly back. Unfortunately it is mostly out of stock worldwide, I guess and there wasn't a restock for the Mario Party release... Compared to Sony and MS, Nintendo seems to suffer quite hard because of chip shortages now.

????

There are a lot more "chips" in a PSx or XBOXx (and some of them are considerably bigger), so your conclusion is somewhat strange.



Nintendo was able to meet the demand quite good in the last 18 months. That's what I wanted to say. Current numbers are a bit underwhelming and could be much higher. That's the kind of problem that Sony and MS primarly had in the last couple of months. I really thought that Nintendo would have been able to ship more OLED models.

Switch can probably be expected to fluctuate dramatically over the following weeks according to OLED supply.
Still, even Nintendo's adjusted forecast has this FY landing close to the Wii's best FY.



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

Microsoft has been promoting the fuck out of Back 4 Blood, Age of Empires 4 and Forza Horizon 5 in Europe. I don't think I have seen so much Xbox promotion since the 360 days.

Yeah, I've seen a Back 4 Blood ad in the movie theater twice now.



I'm anxious to see what will be the sales curve once the shortages end.
