Guess it’s time Xbox brings out the other guns. Fable, Hellblade 2, Obsidians AAA project, The Initiative IP...they got to change the perception that it’s just Halo Gears and Forza. But after the next couple months, i think that’s more then possible
I also think it is possible to change that perception. Ideally you have a mix of establisged, big franchises and new, exciting IP. And it looks good on both fronts for Microsoft for the years to come. I hope they deliver. Their positioning and masseging has been better than Sonys at least up until now. That is why i predict significantly more xboxes sold this generation.
SeriesX = 80
PS5 = 130
That would mean a total increase for the sum of consoles Microsoft and Sony can sell. I assume that for two reasons.
1) Population grows and with it demand.
2) The PS5 and Xbox SeriesX are technically more impressive than the XBOne and PS4 were at their time. More people are gonna be dazzled by next gen wonders. And the generation will be even longer. 8 years minimum, with mid-gen-upgrades as an absolute certainty.
