5. Actually-aggressive pricing didn't do shit for the Series S. So much for PS5 facing a much stronger competition compared to PS4! "PS4 only did well because the Xbox One and the Wii U sucked. PS5 is facing much stronger competition" I was told.

PS5's pricing so far isn't aggressive no matter how you spin it. Let me remind you that everyone whined and bitched about the $70/80 game price, and they whined again (myself included) when the PS5 got a price hike everywhere outside the US, claiming Sony is being super greedy and evil. Funny how quickly the narratives shift!

you reminded me of a gaming podcast I listened years ago. There were these two famous guys, Timdog and "Colt something". They said that the PS4 only sold 2:1 compared to the X1 due to "Don Matrick's" mistakes.

According to them, series S/X would capture a large market share by delivering "unparalleled performance" (series X) and "the best value" (series S).

Well, it looks like they were very wrong. Xbox reports are looking Very weak ( even with Starfield), while PS recent number are Just amazing ( and Spider-man 2 is not even included in their recent numbers). Looks like PS is set to 2:1 Xbox again.

Colt Eastwood is the ultimate clown. One of the countless misinformation he was spreading is that Series SX sold more than PS5 globally lol. It fascinates me how these idiots got so popular.

But Xbox generally gets overestimated even by ordinary and neutral gamers. The VGChartz community constantly overestimate it, with some getting mad or dick-ish at anyone having more realistic or less positive expectations. It's weird! There is one particular thread that I promised to bump at the end of the year. Prepare your popcorn as dis gone b gud.
