Very likely.
Maybe 10M by April end.

Maybe even before. With the Launch in China and the PS4 line-up, I woudn't be surprised.

Ever the optomist! Why not I say ... but I prefer to be less so. But when you consider I thought 18m was possible but unlikely, you could be right.

Yep, I remember. 18M was looking like a 'maybe', now it's probably 20+M by the end of 2014.

   We will see.

Have I lost myself in outer space??? Shouldn't the real numbers for end of 2015 be PS4 19-20M and X1 10-11M??? So PS4 is already at about 9M gap, outdated thread?

Yes. Assuming the Xbox One get to 11 million on chartz,  the PS4 will get to 19 million regardless so the gap is at least 8 million. So the total gap at the end of this year should be approximate to the Xbox One YTD totals. This may be a good rule of thumb actually.

So let's disagree of OP and say it already have 9M and should be 10-11M by end of March.

Your bet is hilarious btw. It seems to involve miricles, paradoxes and quantum tunneling.  



Yes as in it will be above 9m but 9.0m Gap is TOO SMALL. IT WILL BE 10-11M RANGE. Probably 10.5 M, because XBONE will have NO SALES because of price coming back to $400, while PS4 will sell like hot cakes because of the quality of the console and most imporant because of upcoming games.

XBONE might got some sales for November and December because of being cheeper, shopping mom`s would preffer to buy the $330 next gen rather than $400, but thats only valid during hollidays. People who buy the console for themselves will always buy a PS4, simply because its WAY BETTER and all your friends have it. I have over 10 friends who have PS4 and only ONE of them has XBONE ( he also has a PS4 ).

Simply put, PS4 will have DOUBLE SALES (2:1 ratio) from January 2015 - October 2015. MS can't play the price drop card again, it already sold an addition of ~700k Units because of price drop ( rest are regular sales that would have happened without the price drop ). So unless they drop the price to 250 $ and throw in 3-4 games, no one will buy a XBONE.

p.s I used to own XBOX360 and my favourite games of all time are Forza Motorsport series. I bought 2nd XBOX360 Forza Motorsport 4 bundle, just cos I loved the game... but I just can't f*ck myself so hard to buy a XBONE. XBONE is that much of a garbage + Project Cars is cooooooming MARCH 2015 :) :)

The only thing that involves miracles, paradoxes and the quantum tunneling power of the XBONE CLOUD is that XBONE making it to 13M by the end of March 2015. And i can Double bet that PS4 will reach 23M by the end of March 2015.

The bet seems to be that by March, the Xbox One's US total will pass the PS4 global total. So notwithstanding the fact that the PS4 still leads in the US, I think the very foundations of mathematics would have to collapse in order for this to happen.  Lol. 

 

The bet would be more exciting if it was just about US sales. TheDrill seemed intent or creating an impossible scenario and I can't take him seriously. 



Extremely likely.
