The charts include comparisons between the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch, as well as with older platforms. There are articles based on our worldwide estimates, as well as the US, Europe, and Japan.

This monthly series compares the aligned Europe sales of the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.

The PlayStation 5 launched in November 2020, while the PlayStation 4 launched in November 2013. This does mean the holiday periods for the two consoles do lineup.

Interesting. PS5 wasn't able to close the gap that much in Europe during the last months.

Probably because Sony tries to focus on markets outside of the European market. Also Europe is not doing that well economically.

Also the PS5 has a higher MSRP.

I think we're going to see a shift in the market in Europe, with Nintendo coming on top in the next couple of years.
