I was right PS5 was not selling so much, just because of stock shortage, finaly last month I saw for the first time one PS5 on display (inside an acrilyc shield) on a famous retail shop, here in Portugal. Now PS5 is selling 4x more than XBox X in America and also worldwide, it's even surpassing Switch.

I think most people were agreeing with you that sales would have been higher, had they had more units to sell. I certainly did. The question is how prolonged this increase will be. I don't expect it to remain selling 4x more for very long. Even the PS4 only managed to outsell the Xbox One by about 2:5x globally, and less than that in the US. If the PS4 couldn't sustain 4x, and the Xbox Series is looking to be stronger than the Xbox One, then the PS5 likely won't be able to sustain that either.
