Finally PS5 is over 300k and Xbox Series S/X over 200k.

Solid numbers all around while taking into consideration the chip shortages for all consoles.

Probably doesn't hurt that there must be less errors the more of them that are made. Production should maybe, hopefully, finally be on the upswing.

I thought that numbers are pretty good for PS5 and XBS, but then I read that PS4 and XBox One had higher sales in the same week...

PS4 was 265k the previous week but this week is CoD week (Advanced Warfare) and it got boosted all the way to 418k, admittedly it's CoD week for PS5/XSX too but they don't have the stock to take advantage of that and Vanguard isn't selling too hot either.

It has nothing to do with COD or any game whatsoever.
Both PS5 and xbox series X are selling as many as they manufacture, even if no games are released at all.

Yes I know this and nothing in my post says otherwise. CoD is the reason PS4/XBO sales spiked.

The stock for all consoles is going down, let's see what happens in Christmas. Maybe Nintendo , Sony and Microsoft have saved some stock for Xmas. Nintendo has the biggest stock problem, with Xmas and two new pokemon releases that will push even farther the Switch Sales

It depends on the week. PS5 usually sells between 50 and 70% more than Xbox every week, normally. In the Holiday periods, that difference is always diminished because of higher demand for both.

Great numbers for both but Sony is really running away with it in terms of overall sales compared to XBOX. Curious how things go this holiday season with Halo coming the holidays always go well for Microsoft.
