Forums - Sales Discussion - PS5 and Xbox Series X|S Sales Climb - Global Hardware July 17-23

Nice to see Switch up over this week last year; it looks set for a strong second half of the year.



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)

It was a good week across the board based on the data we have. Well minus PS4 and Xbox One. Expect our PS4 estimates to drop by a decent amount over the coming weeks.

If anyone is bored I am discussing the latest gaming news, sales, and VGC estimates over on Twitch.

So PS4 won't make it to 600k this year...

Will you remove it with the XB1 by end of the year, or plan to continue updating the sales for it next year too?

If Sony no longer updates the figures this will be it for PS4 for our estimates.

Nice to see the PS5 having its best week this year yet and Europe getting good stock. It's really early but the 2nd half of the year already looks more promising than the 1st.
