The month of November will be interesting. How many units did the 3ds sell in the UK?

VGChartz estimates have the 3DS at 3.85M in the UK. We have PS5 estimates at 3.06M through October. November is looking to be a big month for the PS5.

I found some historical data and found the OG Xbox sold 2.14M in the UK through 2005. It was discontinued in 2006, so OG Xbox is likely around 2.3M lifetime in the UK. We have Xbox Series X|S estimates at 2.21M through October.

So we can make a pre-estimate that PS5 has sold about 3.8M and Xbox Series has sold 2.35M?
That is a huge month for PS5 and Xbox Series. Can't wait for your post regarding November in the Americas, Europe and the Worldwide sales!

Japan estimates should be out tomorrow. NPD/Circana comes out December 13, so expect the Americas that day or the day after. I am not sure when the UK and Europe monthly reports will be out. Hopefully next week.

Considering Xbox original was the lowest selling and had only 4 years in the market i would have expected Series to have passed it long ago.

PS5 nearing 3DS I'm not sure how it compares.
