PS5 vs Xbox Series X|S vs Switch Launch Sales Comparison Through Week 89

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

  1. Switch: 21,948,209
  2. PS5: 21,612,833
  3. XSX|S: 15,977,753

Through the first 89 weeks available worldwide the Nintendo Switch is ahead of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. The Switch is ahead of the PS5 by 0.34 million units units and is 5.97 million units ahead of the Xbox Series X|S. The PS5 is ahead of the Xbox Series X|S by 5.64 million units.

The Switch has sold 21.95 million in 89 weeks worldwide, while the PS5 sold 21.61 million units and the Xbox Series X|S 15.98 million units.

Looking at the marketshare through 89 weeks, the Switch is in the lead. The Switch has a 36.9 percent marketshare, the PS5 sits at 36.3 percent, and the Xbox Series X|S at 26.8 percent.

The Switch is about to leave the other two systems in the dust.  It should be pretty obvious from the graph.  This current time period was actually Switch's worst year in relative terms.  Nintendo fell short of it's hardware forecast by quite a bit, and they didn't have notable games until the holidays.  Switch is ahead of the other 2 systems in spite of this.  And now that we are about to get to Switch's second holiday on the chart, it should be obvious that it is going to leave the other two systems in the dust.  Neither will move above that red line again.

is it dropping to 2-3-4k? or it will hold around 5-6k for a while?

It will be dropping to the 2-3-4K range over the coming weeks. 

What's the cause of this, less sources reporting them, or just what numbers we do have plummeting?



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)

A mix of both and I don't want our estimates to go above what Sony has reported since it was at 117M in March and the latest report didn't have any figures for June.

I'm very curious when Sony will discontinue the PS4.

I bet they just haven't reached 117.1M that's why they haven't reporter anything. They will probably report 117.1M in the quorter ending september 30th. (Although Nintendo for example has reporter numbers such as 0.05 or 0.02 for ds and wii so I don't see a problem there but probably they want round numbers for the shipments).

Probably by the end of the year, maybe after the holidays.

I really expect about 117.2M as last announced report in january 2023 for the PS4 with it's official discontinuation then.
