    1. Whilst its abundantly clear Nintendo is the dominant in Japan. For Nintendo to do this in only half the time whilst there is a global chip shortage really isn’t a surprise to you, is it ?

  1. Everyone always acts all surprised because the Oled to outsell PS5, no one on these fourms seems to realize that theirs a chip crunch making it difficult or nearly impossible for Sony to produce PS5’s. The chip crunch is affecting alot of business including the automarket. Sony has already lost an estimated $25.6 billion because they can’t get certain chips or components to manufacturer more PS5’s. They even announced that’s why they continue to make PS4’S, even PS5 games that are originally exclusive titles for PS5 get released on PS4.
    These sales figures are pretty accurate, or are they? If you consider Sony is at a disadvantage due to the chip crunch affecting alot of business.
    Ok, now someone correct me and tell me the chip crunch doesn’t affect units sold.

      1. Where did you get this idea that the shortage isn’t affecting Microsoft? i don’t recall being able to walk into any store and buy a Series X. And there is literally zero evidence that Microsoft is not affected. Please stop spreading bs info.

  2. Apparently not, i had no trouble finding a Switch 1st place i went.Yet I’ve only seen 1 PS5 irl, besides online and one time i seen them showing one on Good Morning America. These sales figures are rubbish, if people know the chip crunch is affecting alot of business. Then they aren’t 100% accurate, but im sure someone will correct me or imply im ignorant or something.

  3. Still doesn’t makes sense why PS5 software isn’t top ten. There are 1.1 million PS5s in Japan. Where is the software sales? Why aren’t its games top 10? People buy hardware but don’t buy software. I thought hardware and software were like peanut butter and jelly. Can’t have one without the other. Will for Nintendo that is.
