the NPD (NA) gap this gen is 610k while last gen (at the same time) was 760k. Overall, the 8th gen gap is roughly 7m. not sure what this gen will end up. Could be more, could be less... Im betting on less, like 4-5m.

Considering how hard it is to get a PS5 I'm thinking more if the PS5 can ever become readily available. Xbox seems to be plenty available now. I just searched BB and I was able to order a Xbox series SX but PS5 is still sold out.
