Cool to see Switch back above 300k and PS5 and XS numbers looking healthier.
A good week for all.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

I bet with adjustments that are coming soon Switch will go below 300k for this week, just like almost every other time, one week passes and the previous get adjusted with about 10-15k less. But yeah, strong week for all three.

This last week is the first time I have seen the Series X consistently available at a major retailer in Sweden so things are looking up. It's gonna be a while before the PS5 is available at normal prices though.

Still shocking how much PS5 is down YOY versus how much XS is up.
A real turnaround from last year.

It increasingly looks like unless the PS5 has a really strong holiday it'll never get in front of the Switch again.

I assume Series numbers were adjusted down again after the leaked NPD info...?

Week 85 looked like this:

PS5 Vs. Xbox Series X|S Vs. Switch US:

  1. PS5: 7,571,101
  2. XSX|S: 7,357,226
  3. Switch: 7,260,106

You would be correct. New data for the US for January to May became available, so I made adjustments. Overall, it wasn't a huge change as it was much smaller than the last adjustment for the data we got for 2021. But it was enough for Xbox to go from 2nd to 3rd. This was all done before I did the last week of June's estimates.

Hopefully we are now good with US estimates through May 2022. June NPD will release this Friday.
