PlayStation 5 will approach the annual sales of Nintendo Switch

Thanks to this, the sales of both consoles will be boosted in 2022 and something that stands out in the analysis is that it is estimated that worldwide sales of PlayStation 5 will double those of Xbox Series X|S. Specifically, Xbox Series X|S is forecast to sell 9 million units and PlayStation 5 will sell 18 million systems.

Despite this, this sales boost will not be enough to unseat the current king of annual sales in the world: the Nintendo Switch, which is expected to sell 21 million units in 2022.

However, what is interesting is that the difference in sales between these consoles will narrow. This is not a bad thing for Nintendo Switch, since it is a system that is considered to be of the last generation and that on March 3 will already be 5 years old on the market.
