It was a delight to look at the heated threads during the Holiday season of Nov to Dec.

It'll be interesting to see how each consoles will fare early on post holiday season cuz I fear quite the drop for one of these due to the weak software presentation this far. There's just no real momentum going for it at the moment.

So Vgchartz estimates for the Quarter are:

NSW: 8.17 million
PS4: 6.63 million
XBS: 3.74 million

I hope NSW was undertracked because that is a 2.5 million decline from the same quarter last year.

I don't think the decline was that big since the shipments should be higher than sellthrough by more than a million in that quarter.

PS5 in its second full year only selling 13m...ouch! I figured it would at least do over 15m. What happened to the millions of systems they had stocked heading into the Fall?? Just demand wasn't there? Not a great sign for PS5 going forward. Or did they actually sell them but the rest of their year was so low the year figures are still bad?

They sold them lol. You might want to look at how abysmal PS5 stock levels were for the first half of 2022 to find your answer. 

lol okay, I guess I didn't realize just how god awful PS5 was doing rest of the year haha

This year should be interesting to watch for PS5 as presumably supply will be plentiful so we'll get to see how much has been lack of demand for the system vs lack of supply. If it has just been lack of supply holding it down then it'll probably go up to the 18m/19m levels that PS4 was hitting during its peak years.

The 10.67 figure was shipped not sold through.

Also, October 2022 was down a lot compared to October 2021, And each week of November-December saw a decrease too.
