Switch back at the summit



Statistical tie at the top, I wonder if everyone thinks my idea that MS will release a new Xbox this year is still ridiculous though, those are some truly atrocious numbers.



I remember xbox360 also dropping below 60k ww a week

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

I think they might. At least announce it at this E3.

PS4 with Kingdom Hearts 3 and RE2? It's shouldn't have been this close, or hell, just below the Switch.

Switch

 I can see both announced by then.



                                                                                                             

PS4 is doing good in it's old age, Switch is doing well despite not having big system sellers.

Still won't happen most likely even though MS probably want it to happen already. There is just no good enough hardware to build next-gen console with, It is also not a good idea to just try and fix such problem with making more and more hardware with hope that another one might become a hit. This would be making the same mistake that costed Sega its hardware business.

It is definitely possible. Microsoft might do what they did with the Xbox 360 and get a head start on Sony. I see a possible release this holiday or in March 2020. It depends if they have enough games. If they release it this year I see Gears 5 as something similar to what Breath of the Wild was. Released on the current and next gen consoles on the same day.
