VGChartz Methodology: Hardware estimates are based on retail sampling and trends in individual countries, which are then extrapolated to represent the wider region. This typically allows us to produce figures that end up being within 10% of the actual totals.

This data is regularly compared against official shipment figures released by the console manufacturers and figures estimated by regional trackers with greater market coverage than ourselves. We then update our own estimates to bring them into line with those figures. This can result in frequent changes often within a short space of time, but we feel it's important to prioritise accuracy over consistency.

125 thousand Xbox and PS's to 104 thousand Switches for the Americas though. It's the Japan console for sure.

Before this weeks numbers, 88k units separated the PS5 and Series in NA. Now that number is down to 55k. Im betting Series will have passed the PS5 (in NA) by the end of June.

It might be a bit longer than that. This was a week with very little PS5 stock in the Americas. It looks like there was good stock available directly through Sony for the next week of June (week ending June 25).

And with the adjustments... it would now be back to around 200k difference between Series and PS5 in NA. Okay so it will take a little longer for Series to pass PS5 but it looks like it will happen at some point.

Yeah it is very likely still going to happen. It has just been pushed back by a little bit.

Switch still in beastmode.

it seems the Nintendo Switch can easily sell 1 million units by month.

250,000 per week for the Switch seems like it’s floor. Which is extremely impressive this deep into its life cycle

I want to note, that it seems clear at this point, that PS4 will not reach 120M. Which is a pity.

Switch will overtake PS4 this year if it goes on like this. As Switch is over it's peak, I think it settles as 3rd-best selling console of all time, although this leaves a lot of room of what the final number will be.

And can we start to ask the question, when Xbox Series will overtake PS5?

The charts page of VGChartz now has the Series X|S ahead of the PS5 in the Americas, though still behind in the US, so I would assume Latin America is doing a lot of heavy lifting for Xbox this side of the Atlantic.

Which makes sense. It may have been someone here that said it, but apparently in Brazil a Series S costs $400, while a PS5 costs $1200. The bigger consoles simply aren’t priced competitively for developing/emerging markets

You are right. Latin America is the main reason Xbox Series X|S is ahead of the PS5 in the Americas. However, it likely won't be that much longer until it is ahead in the US.

Adjustments have been made for the Xbox Series X|S. I've updated the weekly breakdown article. With the Xbox Series X|S being overtracked in the US by about 210,000 units, I also adjusted down our Canada estimates. But I also got some new data that showed we were a bit low in some smaller markets.

Worldwide Xbox Series X|S numbers before and after adjustments:

Before: 15,371,011
After: 15,225,211
Change: Down 145,800

It's okay Japan will take all of usa and uk money soon. Don't worry Japan is number 1 in consoles and has no competition from USA and uk.
