Switch seems on a steep decline compare to 2020 and 2020 but it is still way above the baseline f 2019 and that year they did sell around 20 millions

Series X|S may be the only one up YoY for the rest of the year as i don't think Sony will be able to make up the loss the 5 has been suffering anytime soon.

Microsoft stated shortages will potentially be worse in Q2 2022 than in Q1 2022 due to the lockdowns in China shutting down manufacturing plants. I'd expect this to affect Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and Switch for a little while. If this is the case it will only be harder for the PS5 to sell better in 2022 than in 2021.

I am not sure what is hitting Sony so much worse for them to be down year-over-year. Even the Series X has been more available in March than it was a year ago.
