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.

Is this the first week this year the Switch had been topped in the Americas?

Regardless, it seems like supply globally is finally meeting demand

Xbox Series X|S outsold Switch for a few weeks in March and PS5 sold more in January.

This time next week, Switch will be at 110m... and climbing. PS5 should hit 21m next week and Series should hit 16m by the end of the month.

Considering the shortages, these are strong sales for all 3 consoles.

Hope there are more XBOX that can be bought in China! Xbox series X is in high demand in China.

is it really though? is there even real support for chinese customers and are they sold officially in China?

Yes. XBOX and ps5 can be sold officially in China. Most of Chinese people are used to buy consoles online, so maybe it's hard for vgchartz to count the sales like in retailer. since the first launch of Xbox series in China, MS only put less than 5000 consoles for sale in China officially. Every time they only put about 100 - 200 consoles for sale, and they are always sold out in less than 2 seconds.

"PS5 sales compared to the same week for the PS4 in 2015 are down by over 59,000 units, while the Xbox Series X|S compared to the same week for the Xbox One are up by nearly 59,000 units." – It looks like Microsoft gets every customer which Sony isn't able to serve ;-)
