Okay, but that's only because you asked it gently



"Quagmire, are you the type of guy who takes 'no' for an answer ?"
"My lawyer doesn't allow me to answer that question"

Okay so after the adjustment the Xbox Series is currently sitting at 9.43 million for the year instead of 10,01 million. I was thinking about the fact that it seemed way overtracked but didn't wanna face the nay-sayers

November was the main reason we had overtracked it so much. We weren't that far off for the other months. It did far worse than we thought. So I adjusted December down a bit as well after that. I also adjusted Canada and Latin America. And with the yearly best-selling consoles we had Switch too high in 2021 by about ~250K.

Thank you very much, @trunks!

I have to damit I am quite impressed that PS5 seems to have outsold XS and Switch in the US after adjustments for that week. And roughly 200k units more overall than earlier estimates.

I really appreciate Sony's efforts to improve availability. Wonder if, in total, they have reached the argued "additional 3mill in stock for that last quarter"? I remember the news arguing Sony may have stock-piled 3 million PS5s.

Very promising estimates for PS5, anyway.

No problem. As more data becomes available I like to get adjustments done as quickly as possible. (Unless I'm on vacation :P). I'm shocked at how low Xbox Series was in November in the US. Percentage wise it performed better in Europe year-on-year than in the US for the month.

We do plan on continuing PS4 estimates through 2023. However, for Xbox One December 31, 2022 will be the final week.
