Forums - Sales Discussion - VGChartz Sales Comparison Charts June 2022 Discussion Thread

Just want to say that I find all three comparisons in this thread to be really interesting. I especially like that you have added several consoles onto one graph so we can see how the current one stacks up to several past generations.

Switch seems to be tracking not too far behind last year in Europe, so should be ~4mil for the rest of the year. Might take the lead in December, if not then definitely in Q1 next year.

Switch vs PS3 Sales Comparison in Europe - June 2022

This monthly series compares the aligned European sales of the Nintendo Switch and the PlayStation 3.

The PlayStation 3 launched in Europe in March 2007, while the Nintendo Switch launched in March 2017. Therefore, the holiday periods for the two consoles do lineup.

Switch Vs. PS3 Europe:

Gap change in latest month: 155,315 - Switch

Gap change over last 12 months: 1,620,425 - Switch

Total Lead: 4,617,757 - Switch

Switch Total Sales: 28,171,177

PS3 Total Sales: 23,553,420

May 2022 is the 64th month that the Nintendo Switch has been available for in Europe. During the latest month, the Switch has grown its lead over the PlayStation 3 by 155,315 units.

In the last 12 months, the Switch has outsold the PlayStation 3 by 1.62 million units. The Switch is currently ahead of the PlayStation 3 by 4.62 million units.

The 64th month for the Nintendo Switch in Europe is June 2022 and for the PlayStation 3 it is June 2012. The Switch has sold 28.17 million units, while the PlayStation 3 has sold 23.55 million units during the same timeframe. The PlayStation 3 did not reach current Switch sales until month 82.

The PlayStation 3 sold 30.87 million units in Europe during its lifetime. The Switch needs to sell another 2.70 million units to catch up to the lifetime sales of the PlayStation 3.

Looks like Switch will conquer the PS3's last regional stronghold before the year is out, or close to it.
Beating a Playstation home console in Europe is no small feat.



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 would love to see a graph including NSW, Wii and PS3, as it has been done with some other gap charts. They all are really close to each other this far.

IIRC, Sony projects PS5 will continue to track below PS4 through this year and next, but then catch up and overtake it in 2024.
We'll have to wait and see if they can make good on this goal.

PS5 got off to an early lead. Clearly, there was a lot of demand for it from the most hardcore gamers. However, it has been losing ground to the PS4 for the past year, and it's going to continue losing ground for the rest of its lifetime. Shortages are really only the least of PS5's problems. It has the much bigger issue in that it's really only going to be popular in Europe this generation. PS5 will be a distant third place in the US, and it's obvious that there is not much demand for PS5 software in Japan and RoW.

This is going to be a down generation for Sony much like it was for the PS3 (and probably worse). Hopefully they can make a come back with the PS6.

I mostly agree with you.

Only I am not sure if it will finish worse than the PS3 (although I am not ruling it out as a posibility) but could also see it reaching 90 or 100M. We will see.

Certainly this time Playstation has bigger competition in the face of both Microsoft and Nintendo and this will impact the sales decently.
