The VGChartz sales comparison series of articles are updated monthly and each one focuses on a different sales comparison using our estimated video game hardware figures. The charts include comparisons between the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch, as well as with older platforms. There are articles based on our worldwide estimates, as well as the US, Europe, and Japan.

This monthly series compares the aligned US sales of the Nintendo Switch and the Xbox 360.

The Xbox 360 launched in the US in November 2005, while the Nintendo Switch launched in March 2017. Therefore, the holiday periods for the two consoles do not lineup, which is why there are big increases and decreases.

So X360 has been adjusted down in the US, going down from 45.14 to 43.75. This change the things a little bit. Now it looks way more easier for the Switch to beat the 360. Or at least on the graph. I go back and looked the old graph and it looks much more interesting. Now it's almost sure thing that Switch will pass the 360 and although the difference is around 1.5M it's making the neccessary difference to go from the 50:50 zone to the switch will most likely pass it zone.
Also why it isn't until month 134 like before but cut it only till month 103 ?
