It depends on stock each week, but I am expecting the worldwide gap to remain 2:1 or slightly more in PS5's favor for the foreseeable future.

will the PS4 total numbers be ajdusted ? since the new report of 115.9M shipped therefore ithey cabt be more than 200k in the stores so PS4 should be at 115.7M sold as of march and with the 2 weeks of april probably 115.8M

Wow. The switch is doing a pretty good job at keeping pace with last year per week. At the current rate, it might actually stay ahead of the pandemic sales surge.

I can't say when it will be ready. Hopefully relatively soon. From what I've seen it gives us far more options for different graphs.

Tell Trucks to stop playing video games and admiring his his avatar and get to work and even if satisfying me I mean VGChartz, means lots of unpaid overtime it shouldn't make a difference since most likely ioi doesn't pay him anyway.
