XBO will finish around 30m, 360 was around 45 million

So about 2/3 what the 360 sold lifetime. I have a feeling the Xbox Series X will be a much bigger success for Microsoft. 

I do too, 360 era ended with MS shifting away from core gamers to casuals with Kinect then followed that up with the huge PR blunder to start XBO with no used games, always online, Kinect required, 2nd tier countries, $100 more expensive than PS4, etc.

They are ending XBO more similar to how Sony ended PS3 by releasing a great new service (PS+/Game Pass) and investing more into high quality first party studios.

As long as they dont make any unnecessary mistakes to start XSX like they did with XBO than they should be able to build off of that and have more success.

I think this will cause PS5 sales to not reach PS4 but still have a comfortable lead. I'll go with

XSX-65 million (up from ~50m XBO)

PS5-110 million (down from ~125m PS4)

Obviously this could change as we find out more about these devices but that's my initial prediction.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

This is a super close one, and hence very interesting to watch. I feel like PS3 will win in the end.



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

It's especially gratifying to see Switch trending ahead in this one given all that "it's not a success unless outsells 3DS + Wii U combined" downplaying in 2017-2018.

Now if only you would stop believing that Switch's global lifetime sales will beat the 3DS and Wii U combined by only 12-25m units. I am already looking forward to the day when I tell you that I told you so.



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

I'd love to see that happen, believe me.

It's not small task but I got ideas for some new interesting charts, which to update monthly and maybe beggining now with december.

PS4 vs Wii in US

PS4 vs DS in europe

switch vs 360 in US

switch vs 360 in europe

switch vs ps3 in europe

switch vs ps4 in europe

as well as bringing back some old charts like:

PS3 & 360 vs PS4 & ONE 

PS3 vs xbox one in US

PS4 vs 360 in US

PS4 vs DS

PS4 vs 360 in US

PS4 vs DS

1. I can switch the PS4 vs Wii worldwide to US now that PS4 is ahead worldwide, but not in the US. 

2 - 6. I'll take a look at the gap to see if any of those make sense to do articles on. 

7. Taking a look, bringing back PS3 & 360 vs PS4 & ONE makes sense to me, so I will bring it back for December.

8 - 10. Those 3 are still ongoing. 2 of them still need to be posted for November.
