The Switch surpassed the PS1 this week. An article on this milestone will be live later today.

Do you think it will have surpassed PS4 before the Christmas season?

Needs less than 14mil, should definitely top the PS4 before December.

Dare we say September?

Here's the question. I don't see NS surpassing PS4 before November. I think the early Christmas sales will be crucial to get to 3rd place.

You think so? 1.2 million per month would be 12 million in 10 months. That's not accounting for any game releases between then and now. I'd still say September/October, but idk.

Well, it's a few months difference, both options are possible. May the best win XD.
But anyway, what is clear is that PS4 and Game Boy will be defeated this year.

Is there a typo in the xbox one lifetime sales or have numbers been adjusted down?

Greenfox ireadtabloids (on 24 January 2022)

I think they adjusted down sales of XSX/S and NS last week.

Thank you. It hadn’t fully occurred to me that Xbox One might be included in those adjustments.

Yeah there were minor adjustments downward based on the French sales that were posted.

Series is tracking like 5 months ahead of the XBO (for the same time frame) and PS5 was tracking ahead of the PS4 but I think its only slightly behind. Congrats Nintendo for moving into 5th place with only 14m to go before they can take 4th.

Amazing how the switch continues to outsell the PS5 and X-series combined.

PS1 down! GB and PS4 will get passed in the Fall.

I wonder if/when PS5 will overtake the X|S in weekly North American sales this year. Probably sometime soon. But residual Series S availability seems to be doing a lot of work for Microsoft on that front.

One thing to keep an eye out for all 3: crypto markets are crashing hard and there has been an over 1 month long sustained decline that is lowering demand for computing parts. The could potentially be very good news for console shortages

22% down, here is to hoping it's the calm before a surge due to Legends: Arceus.
