Well there's a complete reversal of fortunes for Sony. They went from having zero games in the top 30 last week, to dominating the top 10 with 7 spots, including number 1 and 4 out of the top 5.

Edit: The hardware sales are missing.

Hardware Sales (followed by lifetime sales)

Switch OLED Model – 87,321 (2,311,142)
Switch – 17,558 (18,616,044)
PlayStation 5 – 21,628 (1,629,033)
Xbox Series X – 10,044 (154,575)
Switch Lite – 8,651 (4,870,733)
Xbox Series S – 6,682 (163,699)
PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – 3,481 (262,312)
New 2DS LL (including 2DS) – 130 (1,188,550)
PlayStation 4 – 15 (7,819,839)

The OLED is now the dominant model of Switch, proving once again that Japan is the land of the rising handheld. The OLED had sales more the x3 that of the original model and Lite combined.

I think Switch OLED numbers come from the Splatoon edition
