Some of you all's predictions are very optimistic to say the least. Especially the ones that has the Switch beating the PS4 in lifetime sales.

Anything is possible, many a prediction would have said the same thing about Wii vs. PS3.

I guess:

3DS - 75 M
PS4 - 110 M
Xbox One - 55 M
Switch - 100 M

3DS - 75M

SWITCH - 90M

To be honest, I knew the 360 nor the PS3 wouldn't catch the Wii. Even after the decline of the Wii. They still did wonderful though.

After a while, every console hits a plateau in sales. I do think the PS4 will be over 100M, seeing as it's tracking with the PS2. I think the Xbox One is still selling well. Just not as well as the PS4. So that 73M is still realistic to me. Nothing more than 75M. I don't think it's a stretch. My optimistic comment was really toward those that think the Switch will beat out the PS4 in LT sales. While the Switch is selling quite well. It's still too early to say that it will beat out the monster that is the PS4 (saleswise). Sony pretty much has the rest of the planet in it's hands. The fight is closer in the US and I believe the Switch will overtake the PS4 in Japan. That's about it though.

So you do expect Xbox One to start selling as well as PS4? At the end of this year, the gap between the two consoles is likely to already be 37M. Xbox One: 36M, PS4: 73M. Mathematically, the only way for Xbox One to sell as well as you expect it to sell compared to PS4 is for Xbox One to start selling as well as or better than PS4 after this year.

No I don't think it will sell as much as PS4. I'm not mathematical (if there's such a word) with these type of things. I'm just a console owner of all consoles that paid attention to the trend. The Xbox One can possibly sell on par with PS4 in the US. Negative everywhere else though. I guess looking at our convo, I realized that maybe my prediction is a bit too optimistic. For the Xbox One I mean.

Whoa. All of your predictions are pretty low. What's your reasoning?

The 3DS and XBONE are both pretty much at saturation now, I don't think the 2DS XL and XBONEX will make much impact. PS4 sales are being canabilized by gaming PCs and mobile, but still 90M is quite strong. Switch will have a good holiday season for sure, but after that it won't be until the next mainline Pokemon game appears on Switch before it reaches saturation. If it comes out in 2018 I would revise Switch sales up to 60M+ because of the momentum but I bet Nintendo won't do that. Switch also needs a price cut in 2018 if they want to compete well.



3DS 73M
PS4 111M
Xbox One 67M
Switch 81M



...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

3DS: 76M
PS4: 115M
XBOne: 65M
NS: 110M
