VGChartz Methodology: Hardware estimates are based on retail sampling and trends in individual countries, which are then extrapolated to represent the wider region. This typically allows us to produce figures that end up being within 10% of the actual totals.

This data is regularly compared against official shipment figures released by the console manufacturers and figures estimated by regional trackers with greater market coverage than ourselves. We then update our own estimates to bring them into line with those figures. This can result in frequent changes often within a short space of time, but we feel it's important to prioritise accuracy over consistency.

PS5 looks like it had another relatively good week, and it wasn't too far behind XBox in the Americas. Switch should hit 109m next week. Other than that things seem relatively slow, but this report signifies that we made it through May. I'm sure there has to be some decent game releases in June.



The ps5, hopefully continues to get better stock, and they "it isn't selling well" argument can be laid to rest.



PS5 and XS close in NA and EU, Asia is the main differentiator in sales.

Switch remaining a very admirable baseline given its age and the slow time of year.



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

What kind of meds are you taking, the ps5 is doing bad, it could be selling double if there was stock, I have never seen even 1 single console available for sale and I know of a lot of people who want one. At least xbox has plenty stock on amazon here in Europe, so whoever wanted one got one. I just checked again amazon UK its still available, its been a month that its been available every day.

Your anecdotal evidence does not show that the PS5 is doing badly. It's up over the PS4 in the same week in 2015 by 10k units. By all accounts this week was objectively a good week for the PS5.

You personally not having seen a PS5 available for sale doesn't mean anything.

Of course the PS5 could be selling more without shortages, but so could the Series X.  I've never seen the PS5 nor the Series X available in a store or online here in the US either, but at least on Amazon the PS5 is listed for its regular $499 price and you can request an invite to try and procure one.  The Series X, on the other hand, is still just listed as "add to list" with no chance at all.

Fact is, both consoles would be doing better if the stock was available, not just the Playstation 5.

I guess from an analytical point of view. It still posting better results than the pre-pandemic years is kind of excellent. 

As long as it maintains a better baseline than 2019, it's time under the sun will be shining bright !

I doubt it will remain that way till the end of the year. 2019 got way stronger in september and after. 2022 will lose it's advantage in the holidays and will probably finish around the same or barely up.
