Top 10 Switch on software, but hardware not so much.

Nice pull for Series S that keeps the XBS numbers high... that can't be said for PS5.

Xbox sold more then Playstation!?



Damn, PS5 became scarce after Golden Week.



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

I'm surprised xbox series s is doing so well on Japan. Digital is really growing in Japan

First time in living memory, but really i think it's the first time outside of a launch week since the XB360 era when it was getting a few exclusive JRPG's.





Holy crap, this is not a typo! Xbox outsold Playstation!

Series s is outselling Series x this year too. I think Japan prefer digital now



Ouch to those PS5 sales. Japan isn't the only place is bad PS5 sales. US had essentially no major stock drops at retailers in week 2 and 3 for PS5 and Series X. Series S remains easy enough to find.

Crazy to see Xbox outsell PlayStation in Japan. Even if it is just one week.
