Better sales than I expected for all 3, well I was hoping for 800k+ for PS5 but wasn't completely convinced.

Very good week!

My Xbox Series S is my baby. It grew up into an X.

Good numbers all around considering the available stock. PS5, Series X and Switch OLED all sell out rather quickly. Series S was the main reason for the huge boost in Xbox Series sales.

Considering the circumstances this is a damn good week though it does seem like this holiday will still be disappointing for the PS5 but not outright bad by any means thankfully. Something is it seems the numbers in the weekly chart index are outdated since they show something different for November 29th 2014.

Edit: Well adjustments happened and this week went from good to bad so that's a shame.

Interesting. You are right with the old weekly chart index showing different numbers. I pulled the numbers directly from our database.

My guess is the ones in the database got adjusted but the ones in the index haven't so I'll make sure to check the hardware by date page as well from now on.

Yeah that makes the most sense. All that is automated, so I have no way to manually adjust the numbers on the main site itself, only through the database.

I was impressed for XSeries.

First time ever for it to outsell the PS5. The availability of the Series S was the main reason it won the week worldwide.

Xbox fans can celebrate twice: Xbox Series outsold the PS5 for the first time, and it crossed the 10 million mark.

I know the stock helped it, but even so, that was a victory.



I have a Youtube channel... A Twitter, and... Yeah.
