Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

A healthy primary console. The switch 2 should follow suit if it's an evolution of the switch.



Wow, Switch owners so starved they need other consoles to be full.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

Wow, other console owners so starved for good games that they need a Nintendo to feel good.

Don't come in here with that crap unless you want it sent back your way.

I'm part of that 17% that owns all three.

Now, I wonder what the overlap between PS4 & XBO owners are. I just tweeted Piscatella to find out. I've tweeted him before and he never responded so far, but it never hurts to try.

It was sarcasm. I play Nintendo games 90% of the time.

Damn that lack of sarcasm font.  It's 2020, why is this still not a thing yet?

This seems to me a pretty strong indication that Switch coexists rather than directly competes against PS4/Xbone.

Interesting numbers. This also means that atleast 47% of PS4 and atleast 40% of Xbox One owners have a 2nd or third console.



Interesting data regarding console users. I think this shows that even with a power gap and being a little late compared to PS4/Xbone, the Switch can more than handle its own as a primary console. Even though there are very few current-gen AAA titles and very little of the big annual titles (i.e., Madden, COD, new features on FIFA beyond the basic ones, etc.) on Switch, it appears to have a compelling library that seems to satisfy a decent amount of people to warrant being a primary console, at least in the US if we were to go by the NPD report. So even if the PS5/Xbox Series X (and Lockhart) come out, I think the Switch will be fine as it has features the latter two do not have and those features are enough to entice current and new consumers to the console.
