PS5, Xbox Series X, Switch - every console is successful, but stocks are a problem


NPD has released a new report on the financial results of the gaming world for the US territory, analyzing both the hardware side and the software side. As for PS5, Xbox Series X | S and Nintendo Switch, we can summarize by stating that every console is successful, but the shortage of chips and the consequent limitation of stocks is a big problem.

Information has been shared by Mat Piscatella. The analyst explains that both next-generation consoles sell every available unit immediately. PS5 also became the fastest-selling console in the US within its first five months of life, both in terms of units sold and dollar sales.

In the first quarter of 2021, Nintendo Switch was the console best-selling in terms of units, while PS5 is the number one console in terms of dollar sales. By analyzing only March 2021, however, we see that Nintendo Switch is the best-selling console, both in terms of units and sales in dollars. No specific data related to Xbox Series X | S is indicated.

Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales The best-selling PS5 exclusive in March 2021 in the US is Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales, which takes second place in the Top of the best selling PlayStation games behind Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War. Outriders enters third position. In eighth position we find Ghost of Tsushima, the only other exclusive PlayStation present in the ranking. This data is based on both physical and digital sales.

In the Top 10 Xbox games, the only Xbox exclusive featured is Forza Horizons 4 in seventh place. The ranking of March 2021 of the USA dedicated to Nintendo Switch games is instead dominated by exclusives (games of which only physical sales are known in asterisk):

Monster Hunter Rise Super Mario 3D World * Mario Kart 8 * Animal Crossing New Horizons * Super Mario 3D All-Stars * Super Smash Bros. Ultimate * Pokémon Sword and Shield * The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild * Super Mario Party * Luigi's Mansion 3 * Staying on the next-gen theme, we report the latest on The Last of Us Remake for PS5: Schreier explains why it's a perfect idea.

If you’re looking at pretty anime people in anything less than 4K resolution, are you really looking at them? Genshin Impact’s native PlayStation 5 version launches with the April 15 release of version 1.5, giving you that sweet 4K support along with enhanced textures and faster loading times.

Detailed in a post on the PlayStation Blog, the Beneath the Light of Jadeite update brings new enemies, new events, and new friends to adventure with. We’ll meet Eula, the Spindrift Knight from Mondstadt, and Yanfei, a legal adviser from Liyue Harbor, both of whom sound lovely. It also introduces player housing, because just hanging out in the streets of Mondstadt makes you look like a hobo. Stop it.

My house looks exactly like this.

Me? I’m not the most avid Genshin Impact player, so I’ll admit a lot of the coming update doesn’t make much sense to me, but I do know I’m sick of launching the PS4 version on my PS5 when I try to play. And so I welcome news of a PS5 native version, so I can finally get those speedy loading times and enhanced resolutions that are the reason this massive reverse Oreo taco of a console is in my entertainment center in the first place. Maybe this will be the push I need to finally get fully invested in the game.
