Overestimating Xbox sales i see. Good, good. Ignoring the fact that Sony ordered double the wafers compared to Microsoft which Ampere's sales data falls in line with that fact.

Actually no you should check your math. He is projecting 500k sale for sony and 100k sale for xbox in the same time frame. But current sales do not indicate a 5:1 ratio in favour of sony, it's more like 1.6:1 in favor of sony, so he actually greatly over estimated sony sales.

! Ugh. Elementary common sense escapes you i see.

damn, how do you live getting your panties in a bunch about f**king sales numbers?

n1kki654d ago

Why are people still focused on consoles sales as a single metric to gauge overall brand performance. Microsoft is publishing games on several platforms that could canibalize console sales. But when you look and see a report about 7.5M consoles sold but 9M played Forza, then obviously there strategy is working. What is the highest player count for a PS5 exclusive?

gravedigger54d ago (Edited 54d ago )


Ampere has access to NPD, GSD and Media Create data sales. VGChartz DOES NOT.

Also the FACT that Sony have ordered double the wafers compared to MS.


"Ampere's latest hardware update pins Xbox Series sales at 6.7 million units as of the end of September 2021. This is versus 12.8 million for PlayStation 5."

Even GIbiz made an article about that. Why GIbiz doesn't makes an articles about VGchartz???

Grave digger you digging your own grave. You think that company is the only world supplier? You know world logistics?? You think you ca walk into a store and find series x on the shelf? Both consoles in short supply. But suggesting a 5:1 sell ratio in favour of sony is ridiculous. The ps4 was estimated at around 3:1. Your just deluded

gravedigger53d ago


You don't have any counter aarguments.Lol You are literally grasping at straws. Where the hell estimated PS4 sales are 3:1 over Xbone. It always was around 2:1 or little more than that. Where the hell u you saw PS5 sales 5:1 over XS. It is 2:1.

I still can't get my hands on a PS5 in Australia. Switch's (es?) on the other hand are everywhere.

This is a weird breakdown. Why advertise the week over week sales at the very end of the article when everything else is just DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN.

As far as sales goes, I think this has less to do with Forza, and more to do with the fact they had a restock that week, as well as the Halo console launching the week after. So they're pushing for a strong holiday season as best they can with all these shortages.

Where's the software chart?

Rude-ro54d ago

The best yet is.. how does a “sold out” console see a boost in sales?
So is Microsoft hoarding hardware for their software sales to make this appearance happen with forza then of course halo?

Gamer7554d ago

It's probably because the series s is more readily available hence the boost in sales

You sir, are a lunatic.

A little birdie told me that MS wants to sell all of it's consoles to make money.

Crazy story, I know.

I’ll be contributing to Switch sales in 8 days. Finally snagged a Switch OLED from Best Buy to be picked up on the 30th. 😀Glad I held out and didn’t give in to scalpers.

Automatic7955d ago

Congratulations Switch is an awesome system.

darthv7255d ago

As always, Nintendo Switch selling like hotcakes. Great Job, specially this Black Friday sales will sky rocket even more.

I was able to order a Series X from Walmart today. I tried to get a PS5 too - had both my phone and laptop and refreshing like crazy. I’m really happy and feel fortunate to get at least one of them. My most anticipated game is Eldin Ring - so I’ll get to play it on current gen in all its glory.
