Not much left for Switch when it comes to passing systems. At least outside of Europe. It has been nice to see strong sales for all 3 again. Plus we know PS5 would be a decent amount higher if it wasn't for the shortages and Xbox Series X|S a little bit higher.

Wii and 360 are still ahead of it in NA I think, it should pass them this year.

With two weeks left of 2022 in the charts, looks like Switch will be over 19 million for last year, assuming fairly accurate tracking. Very strong for its 6th calendar year on the market.

Yeah true. In NA it is in 5th behind the DS, PS2, X360, and Wii. In Europe it is in 8th and in Japan in 3rd.

Playstation 5 thoughts:

USA - "Switch!! I'm coming for you!! I'm coming!!"

EU - " Haha! I'm ahead now! You'll never reach me again!"

JP - "Hey... Come back... Ah, who I'm trying to fool...? I'll never catch it..."



Looking at the platform totals, looks like PS3 in Europe is the next milestone for Switch.then shortly thereafter PS1.
So still some more wins left to come. If I had to guess, I'd say it will make it to #3 in NA and worldwide, #5 in Europe, and #1 in Japan.



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 am live over on Twitch going over the latest VGChartz estimates, US and Europe December sales reports, Microsoft layoffs, The Last of Us HBO TV series success, and more. Afterwards I'll be playing some games. If you miss me going over the gaming sales and news it will be up on YouTube later.

Sales up year-over-year, employees down year-over-year :/
70 billion net profit can't keep the lights on :p

https://www.eurogamer.net/microsoft-reportedly-set-to-cut-thousands-of-jobs

Following Microsoft's confirmation of plans to cut 10,000 jobs by Q3 this year, details have started to emerge of the game teams impacted by the layoffs, with Kotaku and Bloomberg reporting Bethesda Games Studios, Gears of War developer The Coalition, and Halo maker 343 Industries are all affected.

Bloomberg's Jason Schreier says the scale of redundancies at these studios is "not yet clear", but reports that 343 - particularly its Halo Infinite campaign team - has been "hit hard". Schreier adds that today's 343 layoffs come "in the wake of a long-running hiring freeze and a lot of contractor departures". We'll have more as the story develops.

MS needs to get their shit together. 

It's been one stumble after another for how many years now? Early this gen it seemed like they were starting to get their mojo back, but more and more lately it seems like they're still stuck in the same Xbone era rut.
