2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 11m, XB1 4m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, 9m PS4 and 3m XB1, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

Around the Network

Ratchet & Clank is the number 1 on amazon usa, in the last days and right now. Thats great !!

And Dark Souls 3 is strong. My prediction:

Hardware: 1# PlayStation 4

Software: 1# Dark Souls 3



The Last of Us 2, so beautiful <3

NOTE: Stop predict only PS4 / XBO, and some times Wii U. You need to predict all 5.

[PS4] 185,000
[XB1] 150,000
[3DS] 100,000
[WIU] 35,000
[PSV] 7,000

Im not that well informed to be predicting with specific numbers but my predictions would be:

PS4 >>>>>>>>> Xbox One + Wii U

Ratchet and Clank >>>>>>>>> Quantum Break

Ratchet and Clank >>>>>>>>> Dark Souls 3 (PS4)

PS4 UP YoY

And last but not least, a confusing yet funny PR from one of the Big 3 will be happening for sure.



My goal is to not be last like March:

[PS4] 195k
[XB1] 155k
[Wii U] 50k
[3DS] 105k
[PSV] 9k

There's also a slight mistake in the OP under last year's number. The 187k is XB1, not PS4.

Also something which may have an impact on hardware: if you trade in a certain Xbox 360 or PS3 SKU you can get $100 off an XB1 at Gamestop through Aprik 24th. http://www.gamestop.com/trade

Also, does anyone know if there were any deals last year?



Around the Network

PS4 212.000
XB1 170.000
3DS 89.000
WIU 55.000
PSV 39.000



You know it deserves the GOTY.

The main point of the XB1 victory last year was because the same deal you posted here. You could buy an XB1 for $125 / $175 at Gamestop if you sold your PS3/360.

That's why April 2015 was that good.

Thanks, updated my prediction accordingly.



XB1 --> 210k
PS4 --> 190K

 

The Divsion > Dark Souls 3
QB > R&C



I've got no idea at the moment. All I'll say is PS4 up YoY and a 100k+ gap.



 

The PS5 Exists.
