The Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console with 912,081 units sold for the week ending December 17, 2022, according to VGChartz estimates. The Switch has now sold an estimated 119.74 million units lifetime.
The PlayStation 5 sold an estimated 690,842 units to bring its lifetime sales to 29.30 million units. The Xbox Series X|S sold 469,840 units to bring their lifetime sales to 20.63 million units.
Sony earlier this month announced lifetime PS5 sales had surpassed 30 million units at the end of 2022. When you add in the two missing weeks of 2022 VGChartz estimates will have PS5 sales above 30 million.
I remember back in the day old sayin: Whoever gets a 10 mill advantage has won the generation.
A 43% increase from last year. Just show how low the supply of ps5 was from last December. Sony is really starting to have much more ps5 to sell.
The Switch is killing it and by those numbers has pulled away from the PS4. Almost a million sold just before Christmas. That’s impressive.
Numbers for PS5 and Xbox S/X are solid all the way around. But surprisingly the industry is down for the year.
