Xbone got a boost this month (aligned) so XS gained only slightly; Destiny launch?



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

Destiny launch and it launched in some other countries in September 2014.

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.

The PS5 is tracking ~3% ahead of its predecessor, the XSX|S is ~28% ahead of the Xbox One. These values won't change much in the final month of these consoles' first year, so combined they'll likely be ahead of last generation by ~10% through the first 12 months.

Through 11 months, the PS4 had beaten the Xbox One by a ratio of just above 2:1. The PS5 has beaten the XSX|S by a ratio of just above 1.6:1, so that's a notable difference and might deserve a bump of the thread that proclaimed that the ratio will remain virtually the same.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

That calls for a comparison PS4+XBone -vs- PS5+XSeries ^^

That is a good comparison. I'll add it to the list of ideas for comparison articles.
