ok that's blatant that the switch stays over 450k I didn't expect
PS5 gap over X series is now over 3M and growing over 2:1 each week.
How much longer until Switch passes the 360?
I think when nintendo releases the fiscal year on May 6th it will be over 360
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.
Are they ever gonna update the graph to include the new consoles?
