I'll go out on a limb and say it will. With how popular PS4 is and with Switch not being able to get third parties(that xb2/ps5) will, switch sales will prob stagnate. So I feel PS5 if going off PS4 success,will catch up quicker than anticipated

The poll in this thread should totally be a bet. Taking a poll option with no risk associated is no fun.

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

Sony is heading for a hard crash, they are censoring their developers to the point where they are simply leaving for the switch, unless Sony course corrects very soon I don't see how the PS5 will ever reach the switch. PS4 did very well and their install base is insulating them for the moment but they won't have that advantage with ps5.

the switch is more handheld i mean the ps5 in comparison to switch its a generational leap nintendo will be left behind again. theres zero next gen console to look forward to for nintendio imo

I am thinking with all the moves Microsoft has made they might be able to convince some people that would buy a PS5 might end up buying a xbox instead.

As for Switch stagnating it's definitely a possibility, i think it depends on how well Nintendo will be able to provide 1st and 2nd party software cause like you say 3rd party might be a lost cause.

PS5 sales will be going to be into PS2 levels.
That should ask your question.

I really don't see how that will happen, Sony has really gone down hill in recent years and their censorship policy is driving Japanese developers right to the switch. They'll have to completely change directions if they are going to make ps2 numbers on ps5, they are only getting away with it now because it's late gen and ps4 has a huge install base.

It all gonna depend on ps5 pricing and the price difference between the next xbox and ps5.

Bait material.

Sony is going downhill... lol

Playstation is more profitable than it ever was.

And it'll be even more next gen.
