Okay so let's say 10 million by the end of the year is guarantee for the Switch, it only has to do 10 million until late september to reach 20 a year. And now we're already at 1.5 million in 1 month, seems to be good so far.

Sony should be concerned if in a year we go from 2 to 1 to being equal in sales and let's leave the excuses of scarcity aside

PS5 being down YOY when year 2 is def supposed see a lot of growth is shocking. I know it's a stock problem, but at the same time a big part of that XB/PS market doesn't care about exclusives and will just buy the one that is available and their friends have. They have been seen to switch sides easily between the 2 companies so if i was Sony i would be worried. Xbox is more available and with the big acquisitions, will also be able to fight in the exclusive department. This generation will be really interesting.

I just noticed that VGC doesn't count 3DS anymore. I thought Famitsu still mentioned some numbers.
Almost 11 years was a long lifetime, though.

Not much point nowadays. Just a few units here and there in the wild.

The fact that the PS5 slowed down significantly to the XSeries makes the race between them genuinely interesting for once.
