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.

What are lifetime X|S and PS5 sales in the US right now? I assume they have to be close to tied. For North America as a whole they are neck and neck according to the charts page

I've been hearing rumblings and rumours that Series X stock is getting better... Seems as though PS5 is too. It's good to see.

I've seen some tweets about PS5s and XSX sitting when they are restocked in Latin America because of how expensive they are. The Series S is perfect for these markets.

That and the Xbox has generally been more popular than PlayStation in several Latin America countries. The Xbox One actually outsold the PS4 in Mexico.

As of the 13th, Switch is already past 109m and should hit 110m by mid July. Maybe sooner if they average 280k a week.



The Switch seems to be averaging around 280K a week since the start of April, sometimes a little more and sometimes a little less. The quarter is almost over so 280K will likely remain the average. Over a 13 week period 280K a week will convert into 3.64 million which would be a decent total for FYQ1 and be in line with meeting Nintendo's target of 21 million for the full FY. To meet their target Switch needs to sell around 3.66m per non holiday quarter and 10m for the holiday quarter. Also I think PS5 will struggle to reach that 18 million target unless things change, if Switch sells 21 million then PS5 needs to sell an average of 86% per week of what Switch sells to reach 18 million and that is not happening at the moment. Maybe things will pick up for the PS5 in FYQ2.

Damn!!! At this rate, XS nor PS5 won't be able to reach 80M of consoles... At least this gen hang on about 10 years...

About Switch, well, it is on its track... Congratulations for Nintendo.

PS5 and XS aren't going to continue at this pace forever; sales will pick up as supply improves, especially for PS5 as it doesn't have the benefit of a Series S equivalent. A longer generation is also a strong possibility due to the companies wanting to recoup their losses.

PS5 at least will definitely pass 80 million. Heck, it will most likely pass 100 million.

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