Switch almost caught up to PS5 in Europe a few months ago. I think it will be an interesting race to follow this year.

PS5 just had its 3rd holiday season but Switch has only had 2 so this will definitely be a race to watch.

This is an aligned comparison since launch. Also Switch sold more than PS5 in EU this year.

PS5 digital is on the store shelf for the very first time where I live. January 20, 2023. Finally. Sony's focus for 2023 should be "the slim" and lowering prices. $375 even for the slim would be huge. Or more games included.

keep in mind its not like a switch flipped, bot the Series X and PS5 have slowly been getting better with each passing quarter. You can basically already see what their sales will be like beause it was not hard to find a ps5 in late december.
