Not even 7 million? Yeesh. Less than a year in and the generation has already been decided.

This comparison is for the month of August. As for real time, the Series has already passed 7m. It is 2 months ahead of the XBO and 4 months ahead of 360.

We don't need to look at VGChartz to predict what's gonna happen...One of these two is a GLOBAL brand and belongs to the most successful home console gaming brand in history, the other one....Not even close;)

That is not true. PS is doing great in Europe and North America but getting its ass handed to them in Asia/Pacific by Switch.

The PS5 is completely sold out in Japan at the moment.

Ya, Switch is so far ahead that neither PS5 nor XB Series will catch it.

As for PS vs. XB.... Sony have not given any PS only gamers a reason to leave. They continue to deliver great game experiences since PS5 launch.... Spider-man, LBP, Demon's Souls, Returnal, R&C, and now Deathloop. With Horizon, GT, and God of War up next. If you were satisfied with PS4 there would be no reason to switch to XB Series. Gaming is about games, and Sony continues to deliver on that front.

Switch is a last gen console and that's being generous. Most games aren't even considered for Switch ports these days.

It's kind of funny that the first 10 months of 360 were almost exactly the same as the first 10 months of PS3. Given the wildly different perception of the two consoles during those periods, you would think 360 would have done a lot better. It really highlights how important that one-year head start was for 360, and why no console manufacturer can ever let that happen again.

Switch has been shipping for a few years before PS5 and XB Series. It is doing awesome.

I just assumed that everyone would understand I was talking about directly competing consoles (I.e. PS3 vs 360, XONE vs PS4, etc). Maybe you don't have much experience with the Switch, but it is quite different from the PS5 and XB Series.

Also, even if I was talking about the Switch, your statement would support, rather than undercut my point, because it got out earlier than those consoles and now has an install base advantage. How could you have read my comment and think that I was saying it is bad to get a headstart? I literally pointed out that by getting a headstart on PS3, 360 was perceived as being dominant, even though it sold similarly in its first ten months. When I said "no console manufacturer can ever let that happen again," I was clearly saying that no manufacturer can let their direct competitor launch a year earlier again like Sony did. The comment makes no sense otherwise. Why would a manufacturer want to stop itself from getting an advantage by getting a headstart?
