Wow! What a drop.

A lot bigger than I was expecting. But the latest data from NPD meant we had overtracked it by a decent amount(And same Xbox Series X|S and Switch). Everything is showing there was very little increase in PS5 stock leading into the holiday.

Didn't expect PS4 to take the lead considering PS5 was around 700k ahead just a month ago.

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

Man, even with the shortages, that PS4/PS5 comparison is pretty disappointing.

PS5 was ahead of PS4 before adjustments, but shortages were far worse than we expected.

I don't think we'll ever again hear the phrase, "PS5 is the fastest selling system of all time." It's going to stay behind the PS4 until the Wii or some other system steps up to take the mantle for X months after launch.

Man Xbox series is going to have a great holiday season. I am totally expecting them to exlipse ps5 sales in the US. Microsoft has readily abaiLble series s stock on Amazon and GameStop. You can’t buy a PlayStation 4 or 5 right now really.
