Xbox Series sales in America are really nice!
PS5 in Euroe though…

There was a decent sized shipment for both in the US and UK, although Series X had the most consoles available. PS5 had a bit more consoles available in mainland Europe than in previous weeks. But not the same size as was seen in the US and UK. 

Man.... production this slow so far into the gen.... feels bad man.

Series S was clearly a brilliant move. I don't see ps5 and series X supply getting better anytime soon.



I do wonder with how popular the S is and how long the shortages of PS5 and Series X are lasting, if this will impact how much dev teams push engines for future games in the second half of this generation's life. If they know that, hypothetically, 30% of the PS5/XS market is Series S devices, then I could see many dev teams not pushing graphics as much as they would if Series S was only, let's say, 10% of the market.



Switch will continue to dominate until the switch 2.

Switch's 2022 still ahead of it's 2020 YTD.
Obviously, late March will put an end to that once we get aligned with the Animal Crossing tsunami, but still, considering Switch was already going strong before AC arrived, still impressive that it's kept pace this far, at the end of it's 5th year on the market.



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

It would be weird if it didn't outsell, the series S has always been available here in Europe since day 1, the series X has been on amazon UK in stock for over a week now without running out of stock. 

On the other hand I haven't seen a PS5 for sale anywhere. Good thing I got mine when I could last year.

If I wanted a series X I would order right now, and I get 20% discount as I dont pay VAT in the channel islands, so it costs me £375 brand new, but I have a powerful PC so.

PS5 still only says "coming soon" here (Best buy Canada). Never seen it in stock.
PS5 digital same "coming soon"

Series X is sold out, has a new offer, CAD 40 a month for 2 years with game pass ultimate, CAD 960 total, CAD 15.00 a month for game pass.
Series S is in stop, also has an offer, CAD 30 a month for 2 years with game pass ultimate, CAD 720 total, CAD 14.17 a month for game pass.

Series X is in stock on Amazon.ca (regular price) PS5 add to wish list only.

These stock shortages are depressing.

In the US, Amazon only has XBox Series X listings from scalpers unfortunately.
