    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.

    Nice to see Switch staying above 300k again. With XC3 the following week, along with the Splatoon 3 OLED Switch and the game itself in September, hopefully Switch sales can hold close to that number for most of the next several weeks. Overall expecting Jul-Sept to be higher for Switch than the Apr-Jun number that will be revealed soon.

    PS5 is finally starting to break away from the 5m gap that it was stuck in with the Series for so long. 2nd half of the year should be a nice recovery with improved production.

    Maybe. The fourth quarter is traditionally Xbox's best overall, but also the quarter they tend to be closest to Sony. So it depends on supply for each, and depends on how well Microsoft does at building up inventory (and how well they take advantage of that by doing bundles or other things to make sure they're moving all their inventory).
