Hmm... While Xbox could outsell the PS5 next generation, I can't see it happening.

This generation was a harsh lesson and it could have been worse. Dreamcast worse.

To sell "only" 50 million consoles and lose to your main competitor so badly really woke up the gaming division at Microsoft.

They'll likely have the power advantage though, that's yet to be confirmed. Gamepass is probably the best value for money in gaming right now and 1st party exclusives won't be so sparse.

The same missteps won't happen again. The generation will be more competitive. Vgchartz will thrive as a result.

You mean list wars are gona make a comeback? Lets be honest, 1/3 of the topics eaarly on the gen was pure list wars. Maybe this time it wont be so one sided and a real discusion can be had. I was kind of tired of xbox fans just dismising everything on sonys list cuz "they just arent my type of games".



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

Users on VGC wrote better analysis/predictions. If Sony will blast with exclusives in launch window like Switch did, and they aim at it most likely, cross gen Halo I will not matter much. Also, until XSX releases, Xone will die a slow and painful death.

Hmm. Will this one be locked, too?

If it leads to trouble, yes.

Someone underestimating Halo.. not a wise decision.

Nothing againts it, but cross-gen is absolutely a disadvantage here.



There is no reason for people to switch next gen unless there is some major issues with the PS5.

They will need a few aces up their sleeve to cause a change,



 

 

I meant to put "fully agree". I selected yes. At the start of any generation is a fresh start for any console maker. Well Nintendo seems to be an anomaly with that scenario. My point is that anything could happen. Sony for the most part has won every generation except for 1 in terms of sales. Xbox has a chance if they follow thru with the exclusives that was promised. We know the multimedia and hardware of Series X will be bar none exceptional. I'm just looking for healthy competition this time instead of an outright domination from either of the 3.

Yes if you are going to count Halo Infinite cross-gen as a reason for XsX to do well then you need to count at least FFVIIR, TLOU2 and Ghost of Tsushijima for PS5 plus of course a little older but graphical show of HZD, SM and GoW. And if Sony is smart they had some groups working on improved version of those titles for PS5 to make the lack of new titles that is common for new gen seem a little less troublesome.

Yes.

For me when you lack information to grant something will change the default is "most probably it won't change". So I see no reason to believe XSX will sell more HW than PS5.

Actually, there is a reason. It's called Game Pass.

If the three key points (price of the console, performance of multiplats, (timed) exclusive content for multiplats) are heading for virtual parity, then Game Pass will be an ace because it's gaming for cheap. The lack of game ownership won't be a concern because both PS and Xbox gamers have already been willing to give up their ownership rights as the evergrowing share of digital game sales proves.



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