PS4 VS Switch lifetime sales, which console will sell the most?

Forums - Sales Discussion - PS4 VS Switch lifetime sales, which console will sell the most?

What do you expect?

NSW will win by a huge margin 18 6.69%
 
NSW will win by a small margin 59 21.93%
 
PS4 will win by a small margin 70 26.02%
 
PS4 will win by a huge margin 115 42.75%
 
Sorry, no troll XB1 option. :P Oh wait... 7 2.60%
 
Total:269

I expect the PS4 to sell 100-120 Million lifetime with the PS5 releasing in early 2020, and if Nintendo releases a fully handheld Switch model for $150 in 2019/2020 I expect the Switch to release 100-130 million lifetime, otherwise I expect the Switch to cap at about 80-90 million.

So it depends on Nintendo more than anything.

My entire argument is that the Switch will now Sell more LT than the PS4. That's literally the topic of the thread.
I understand the switch, I understand why it's selling and I understand that it's selling very very well but what I don't understand is why you think it will outsell PS4 LT. Reaching 60 million will happen but will be tough, and that's just to get where the PS4 was a couple of months ago. 


Every year people have said the PS4 will slow down, this train is only getting started ;) 


The gaming market overall is growing year on year.
The Switch, releasing years after the PS4 should give it a natural LT sales edge.

Also, China.

Which is why the PS4 keeps on selling well no matter how many times people say it's 'peaked'

How so? Intrigued to understand that.

China? That'll be interesting to see but I really doubt the Chinese market will add much. Just because there's a lot of people doesn't mean sales are massive, ie India.

Well then, looks like i have something to bookmark for myself now. Switch will struggle to surpass 60 million. Ok, see you again.



2020 predictions: NSW 21m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m
(PS5 and XSX predictions will most likely change after we know enough about them)

depends on whether or not sony drops a mee too version of the switch.....

but, this holiday season will also say a lot so we shall see

I think Switch can do 80m lifetime. I said it WILL do 60m, it'll be tough because it wont happen in just a year or 2 it'll take a good while and a lot of good games. It would be easy if nintendo could put their feet up and do nothing but that's not the case.

I am afraid to say anything until after Switch's second year. If it does meet Nintendo's expectations, I am willing to say that Nintendo Switch can win with a small margin. I think Pokemon and more can drive it to DS-like numbers yoy.




lol what a weird comparison. switch not even guaranteed to even sell 80 million., it's been in the market for such a short period of time and were comparing to something that has been selling strong for 4 years. ok



Ps4 wins, big margin, +1.5 more consoles

Ps4: 115m
Switch: 75m
Xbox: 55m



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

New Switch, Switch lite , Switch XL  will help to Switch reach 100 million sales.



You made that D-SS list yourself? I liked it.
Anyway, the PS4, I expect it to sell around 120M units.
