By my guesstimation... PS5 should be hitting 20m sometime in May while the Series will hit 20m by November. PS5 seems to be about 2mo behind the PS4 while the Series is 6mo ahead of the XBO.

2.9m behind last quarter, probably over 3m behind now.

am i seeing that right...? Series sold 12k units in JP for the week... that is crazy considering it was 4k the week prior. And only 1600 units behind the PS5 in EU (PS strongest market) is also a sight to behold.

Even still... its impressive to see it move so many in Asian territories when you see how shunned the XBO was over there.

I recently had the option to buy a Switch OLED and 10 games and 2 controllers for a highly discounted price. The cost was insane, even used. You buy an Xbox Series X, use old controllers that you can buy for almost nothing, and get game pass and voila, you've saved so much money. That's the reason.
