Nice to see Switch clear a third of a million in a week again.
Switch Sports may not be the kind of title that makes people rush out to buy a new system day 1, but over time it should have a cumulative effect on hardware sales, at least in as much as stock allows and given the system's age.



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

Year to Date Sales Comparison (Same Periods Covered)

PS5 +X|S YTD is not that different from last year and this year.  The main difference is that X|S is taking a much bigger chunk of that similarly sized pie.



Switch still tracking around 40% ahead of 2019, which was itself a strong year by most standards, in its 6th calendar year.
