Switch has 46 % market share in 2022. That's more than I thought (~40%). I think that we'll see a head-to-head battle between PS5 and Switch market share this year.

Agree. Could both tie around the 17 million mark.

That low for PS5? I thought Sony was about to crank up production. Or was that just a rumor about the 30 million units shipped.

But I could see switch selling another 17 million.

That's right! Sony said that they are aiming to ship 30 million PS5 in the fiscal year '23 (March 2023 - March 2024). This could happen with a new model (the one with an external disc drive), but we will see if the demand is really that high. 30 million would be Switch or DS level in their peak.

I guess they can always drop their orders down later if they had to. Maybe it was more that they were securing the means to ship 30 million. I guess we'll find out. I've seen ps5s sitting around. So they aren't so hard to come by anymore, finally.
