    Dude taking it way too seriously as if he has a personal stake in whichever system sells the most. Just get the one you want and enjoy.

    Those numbers look off by a lot. But I'm not sure why anyone would be surprised that PS is outselling Xbox. That's been the case every console generation. The funny thing are the fan boys celebrating in the comments like Sony is splitting the profits with them.

    I’m not sure if the numbers are 100% but there’s truth to the ps5 selling a lot more consoles as it’s the 3rd month in two years the switch has come in second in sales in the UK. You can’t get exact numbers for worldwide sales, you can go based off the allotted amount sony has shipped and find numbers for each global retailer.

    Nintendo Switch slips to second place for only the third time in two years

    Almost 900,000 games consoles were sold in the UK during November, according to the last GfK market data.

    The hardware data is for the four weeks ending November 28th.

    In terms of home consoles (not handhelds), it is the eighth biggest month for console sales and the second biggest month for console revenue, behind December 2013, which was when PS4 and Xbox One received big new shipments.

    The most successful machine of last month was the newly released PlayStation 5, which means that Nintendo Switch had to settle for second place for only the third time in two years. Even so, it was a big month for Switch, with hardware sales up 96% over the previous four weeks. The console had a very successful Black Friday, and so far this year, Switch hardware sales are up 63.1% year-on-year.

    In terms of boxed software, 2.38 million games were sold in the UK last month (October 25th - November 21st). Switch games were the most popular of the month, accounting for nearly 35% of all games sold, followed by PS4.

    Nintendo was the top publisher of the month thanks to continued strong sales of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, Minecraft and Super Mario 3D All-Stars. The company held off strong competition from Ubisoft, which saw big sales of Assassin's Creed Valhalla (No.2) and Watch Dogs: Legion (No.5).

    The biggest selling new game of the month was Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The Activision shooter sold significantly fewer boxed units than previous games in the franchise, with the vast majority of sales coming via digital download.

    The other big new game in the charts is PS4 and PS5 game Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The title reached No.4 and primarily sold on PS5. In fact, it was comfortably the biggest PS5 launch game, ahead of Call of Duty.

    The launch of new consoles unsurprisingly caused a spike in the accessories market. Nearly 1.25 million accessories were sold in November (October 25th - November 21st), which is up 61.4% month-on-month and 48.3% compared with last November.

    The best-selling accessories of the month were the PS5 DualSense Controller (No.1) and the Pulse 3D Headset for PS4 and PS5 (No.2). The PS4 DualShock drops from the top spot to No.3, meanwhile the new Xbox controllers debut at No.4 (Shock Blue), No.5 (Carbon Black) and No.9 (Robot White). Other new accessories in the charts include the Media Remote for PS5 (No.7), the DualSense Charging Station (No.8), and the PS5 HD Camera (No.11).

    Sony, and nintendo might be putting the numbers out themselves, if not You would have to compile sales from npd, that's probably the best bet.

    Until each company quarter ends who knows...

    The numbers are incorrect, there is nothing to not be sure about.


    Either console out selling the other right now is strictly because of supply and demand as whatever is on the shelf is getting scooped up. Even if you do come across a wild ps5 or xbox it won't be there long.

    The only places this would be really different in is Asia for xbox
