Crazy that the two were almost tied in holiday 2014 and 2015. Wasn't til 2016 that they really parted ways.



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

Microsoft started the gen with one hand tied behind their back. Even with the botched launch Microsoft was able to keep it fairly close in the US. I have a feeling Xbox Series X will outsell the PS5 in the US.

Funnily enough though it was the early gen when they were still very close there, despite all the bad PR for Xbone.

Sayonara suckers. There should be no looking back now.

Switch has truly grown Nintendo's audience instead of just inheriting the Wii U and 3DS userbases. It should also be noted that a lot of Wii U owners would've also had a 3DS so the total amount of people between them would be less than their combined numbers.

The Switch has been on fire and sales have only been on the rise. Wii U was practically dead on arrival and the 3DS peaked only after a couple years. Only a matter of time before the Switch surpasses the combined sales of the 2 and keeps on going.

It's starting to look like the PS4 won't pass the Xbox 360 in the US.



Signature goes here!

It needs to sell another 12 million. With the PS5 6 months away from release it is not looking very likely. Though, a price cut to $199 would help push units.
