Last week's performance by the PS5 seems to have been a temporary lack of stock. Xbox Series still rising! Switch way under last year but still 2nd best week 21.



Signature goes here!

Is the consensus the Switch is having stock issues or just cooling off a bit? Granted is cooling off state is still solid.



Xbox keeping the momentum with a bit more X this time so its actually up.

Looks like enough OLED models were in stock this week. I think Nintendo can be happy if 60k holds during summer.



This being the new baseline for a while is great for a system over 5 years old.



I mean this is the best baseline the Switch has ever had if we don't look at last year so you betcha that it's still hot !

PS5 stock in the wild I presume.
Xbox Series S performing "well" as ever in the meantime.

I believe the Series X|S has been on the market roughly 78 weeks, which is almost exactly a year and a half. They have sold about 200,000 consoles in Japan over that time period, which averages out to about 2,500 consoles sold per week. That works out to about 130,000 console per year.

If Xbox is able to maintain that sales pace over an 8 year console lifespan, the Series X|S will sell slightly over 1,000,000 consoles in Japan over the course of its life.

Does that seem like a reasonable goal for anyone else? Or should be expect a sales cliff earlier
