I am impatient to see if Switch 2022 stays above Switch 2020 which was starting its Pandemic boost around mid-end March.

Animal Crossing released during the 20th of March. I hope that’s helpful to you as you watch these charts.

For the entire year or until the boost? If only until the boost, definitely. It couldn't lose ground that quickly.

Since 2021 fell short of 2020 and 2022 < 2021, then i think we have our answer. 2022 is a case of a strong second half. Strikers will have a nice effet in Europe, Splatoon 3 will push the sales in Japan, Gen 9 and Botw 2 will push the sales overall. A lot of people sold their Switch after finishing Botw. It will have been more than 5 years between the 2. So i expect it to be a massive system seller.

Also, it will be interesting to see the revision situation.

Given how the shortages have been going, I don't anticipate another revision before the successor. Not a major one anyway. Mid 2023 I could see another shrinkage of the components and maybe an OLED lite gets released. Switch OLED drops to 300. OLED lite drops to 180.

Since you mentioned it, what is it that you're guessing about a revision?

do you think the Xseries can stay this close to the PS5 all 2022?

I think it will yes. PS5 will remain in low stock for most of the year.

My guess is that Sony chose to air-ship more units to stores holiday 2021 than Microsoft did. Therefore Microsoft will out-ship Sony in the early months of 2022 as they had more in their sea shipping pipeline than Sony did.

Why Xbox numbers on the main page graph has current database and PS5 didnt get the real numbers since weeks?

The year to date sales column of 2021 doesn't include PS5 and XBS in total numbers. This should be fixed.
