I think it's way too soon to make a prediction like that.

Those gamers will always buy Playstation.

Your prediction is one of the wost prediction i ever see



PS4 - over 100 millions let's say 120m
Xbox One - 70m
Wii U - 25m

Vita - 15m if it will not get Final Fantasy Kingdoms Heart and Monster Hunter 20m otherwise
3DS - 80m

Yeah, Sony is just going to sit back and hand Nintendo and MS their share of the market...


They will be trading in a bottle of water for an ocean. Imagine PS5 in the hands of nearly every man, woman, and child on earth. Sony could make it happen, and they're working towards it.


Well it would be their loss. Im not sure their first party offerings will be enough...

 



Errrrrr IDK bout that man. Keep in mind that while the industry is shifting towards being digital (which both Sony and Devs will prefer due to cutting out distribution prices and secondhand gaming stuff) there are whole business chains dedicated to the sale of physical copies. Some gamers, such as myself, like having these physical copies as collectibles. I do think that gaming will shift to become digital, but I'm not sure it will happen as quick as the next iteration of PlayStation.

Sony has spent decades cultivating relationships with 3rd party publishers and developers. They won't be hurting for games. And unlike PS4, the PS5 will have BC with almost all of their previous systems.

Yeah just like many people believed that  ps4 would fail because ps3 didn't do well

Why would third party developers release their games through the PS5 app?

Because their games will be on 300+ million devices on day 1 without worrying about secondhand sales.

Yeah and they would have to make sure that their games would work on every device. All the different control methods, the difference in hardware power, the pricing etc...
