I think this is one area where covid can be blamed. Cross gen games, delays, bugs, NOT the pandemic's fault but the chip shortages are a real thing that is affecting every single industry that relies on these chips.

I heard that there was a washing machine shortage due to this stuff last year. lol

They are aiming to be at least on par with PS4 worldwide by the end of fin. year, so seems like they are reserving consoles for a holiday season.

Supply is still really bad.
UK has also no 1 million units sold announcement yet.
US sales will drop below Ps5 launch aligned after September NPD
In Japan, PS5 is still ahead, tho.
I mean... is that because it's not selling? Or literally they can' buy any because there aren't any? Click-bait title as always.

I think the PS5 is only selling better overall because the PS4 install base is so strong and sony marketing is effective on them.
imo the PS5 and next gen overall is just less exciting in general, more cross gen, dimininishing returns and in sonys case the PS5 and its games are expensive.
Once the hardcore fans have got the PS5s I think sales will go down a bit.
Its interesting because apart from the PS3, playstation consoles have always been going for the mass market and afordable option. Its not easy for sony because they want to be the affordable mass market option and the premium AAA box. Its hard to be both great value/affordable and the premium AAA brand.

Well there is something wrong in the claim...

Week 46: 360k
Week 44: 250k

Week 44 is before Week 46.
So we need 2 week of sales for PS5?

I've never been to Spain, but I kinda like the music. They say the ladies are insane there.

Was PS4 and Xbox One sales still 100% dependent on available stock a year after launch? No. These comparisons are pointless until supply can get close to demand.

This tells me that Spain makes up probably around 2% of PS5 sales. That's mildly interesting I guess.

Isn't the chip shortage happening because of the push of smart cars? i remember watching a Linus video about it.
