You are missing the point entirely. With the Series S being easier to produce due to a more available chipset, they are more readily available and that is why it is selling more. People are more willing to drop 300 bucks on a Series S for now, knowing they will still have it for MS exclusives later on than they would likely be to drop a similar amount for a PS4...a console that is going to lose support in a year or two at best.
Then when a PS5 or Series X is available they trade the S for an X or just buy a PS5 to go alongside the S they already have.
I got your point but seems you are missing it anyway.
Series S have been readily available for the past 6 months, not because it is easier to produce, because it was less desired. Even with Series X sold out and Series S available the reports saw in VGC threads had Series S at about 1/3 of the total sales of Series.
Then comes Holiday Season and sales will increase anyway as every year. PS5 and Series X can't really increase because there isn't inventory sitting around neither in stores nor transport or factory, so the only console that was available was Series S, so it saw the increase in sales that would be for others. It is simple as that. If Series S was really that desired as you expect it would also be sold out. PS5 is outselling Series with quite some margin even with X and PS5 sold out and S available, that should tell you that there isn't that many S produced and/or it isn't selling as well as you think.
