Poor Switch, not only is the cliff fast approaching but soon the PS5 will overtake it in weekly sales. Not that it matters all that much since when counting XS sales, they are ahead.

What an ignorant comment. First of all the Switch gives no fucks about how much PS5 sells because it's ahead by a lot. And Xbox is keeping up really well considering it's also supply constrained and that Microsoft has been using some of the chips they were producing for Xbox Cloud Gaming instead of consoles.

The big three are selling more consoles than they have ever before (literally, PS5 is the fastest selling PS ever, Series X/S is the fastest-selling Xbox ever and the Switch is a huge success) and some of you are still wasting your time console warring.

Also there is no cliff for the Switch.
