    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.

    PS5 gap from Xbox is growing inside a weak summer for software. This is pleasing to see.

    To be honest I expected a little bit better sales worldwide after the very good Famitsu numbers for this week.

    will the switch pass the ps4 until the end of the year?

    Without a doubt. At almost 111M they only need 7M more, which they will guarantee get within the holiday season without even including all of August, September, or October.

    Switch will pass PS4 in the first week of December at least. Maybe even before that.

    PS5 is beginning to pull away from Xbox again. Glad to see that Sony can manufacture more units. Though I do believe Xbox will be able to remain competitive in the years to come. It's just Sony has been more significantly effected with regard to supply than Xbox has based on demand.

    Yeah, they have been around 5-5.5m for most of the year and now the gap is 5.7m. At one point they were under 5m but that was for like a month.

    The hit is done and for a long term. MS had the time to bright more than SONY for a significant moment and the ratio between these two has definitely changed now.

    Series with 16m by the end of July, as predicted. PS5 grew its gap from 5.5 to 5.7m. And Switch just couldnt pull out 111m by end of the month. It will start first week of August with it then.

    It seems as if Sony is actually succeeding bit by bit in increasing the units produced. These are very strong Japan numbers for the PS5. All in all, all consoles experienced a very healthy sales week based on the estimates. I think we are heading for a very promising holiday season at the end of the year.

    What I'm curious about is the percentage of those numbers in Japan that are actually being scalped to sell into other countries due to the drop in the value of yen.

    Even still, it's awesome that Sony is able to manufacture more and hopefully they keep it up for the rest of the year!
