I think Series S qua competitor to PS5 is also interesting. The substantial price advantage for Series S won't make any headway amongst gamers that have any strict preference for Sony exclusives, or the aforementioned 4k players, but I do think that especially amongst parents and kids, wanting a console for Fortnite or Minecraft or whatever game comes next, this will be the machine. It will be bundled with minecraft, it will be bundled with fortnite. This is a sizeable chunk of the market, which is incredibly sensitive to price, sensitive to bundling deals, and insensitive to graphics performance. 


Totally agree with you there, but not only that, the Series S will be the first "next-gen" home console to hit the $200 sweet spot. At that price point, it will be hard to resist as a secondary console. I think the only thing that might become a problem for the Series S is if Sony decides to keep manufacturing the PS4 Pro and price it at $300 (and $200 for the holidays).

Or just get rid of the Pro (if they haven't already) and PS4 is their $299 option. Throw in some games and it looks like a good deal. Sony would have $299, $399 and $499 options.

At this point though, last gen hardware sales will nosedive just like 2014. The masses willing to spend hundreds of dollars wants next gen.

PS4 was a really popular console, but I'd guess it might sell about 6 million at this point. Also depends if Sony does anything to stimulate sales.
