PS5 Weekly Sales Exceeded 1 Million this Week (Estimate)

The PS5 was (again) the bestselling console this week with a total estimated sales figure of 1,001,527 for the third week of November. Sony’s next-gen console hit retail in Europe and the rest of the world this week, selling a whopping 723K units in Europe during its launch week.

In comparison, the PS4 sold slightly few units in Europe in its launch week (707K) in 2013. This isn’t really a phenomenal growth and can be mainly attributed to the increase in the number of gamers and the industry as a whole.

Microsoft’s Xbox Series X|S sold around 252K units in its second week, a steep fall compared to the XB1 which sold 454K units in its second week. This can be primary attributed to the dismal stock and falls in line with the number of consoles shipped that week.

As reported earlier, both the next-gen consoles are expected to be out of stock for the Holiday Season and those of you wanting to grab one will likely have to wait till New Year’s.

The Nintendo Switch continued to outsell Microsoft’s new consoles on a global level, topping the charts in the Americas, with a total sales figure of 828K worldwide and 326K in NA.
