So much info missing that making a prediction is kind of difficult.
I guess Sony continues to outsell MS



Around the Network

This will be a tighter race than Generation 8. Microsoft seems to have learned from most of the stupidity of their Xbox One strategy (namely at the beginning).
PS5 will sell less than PS4. The PS4 is looking at 120-130 million lifetime hardware sales. PS5 might surpass the PS1, but I don't see it touching the PS4. The PS4 did so well largely because of Nintendo and Microsoft being stupid.
I can't say that Xbox Series X will sell more than the Xbox One, because I genuinely believe this will be the final generation of Xbox hardware. At the very least, I don't think it will do significantly better or worse than the Xbox One. The Xbox One will probably make it to 53-55 million lifetime hardware sales, and that's not too crazy for the Xbox Series X.

Lifetime Sales Predictions 

PS4: 130 mil (was 100 million) Xbox One: 55 mil (was 50 mil) Switch: 110 million (was 73, then 96 million)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

The gap will be much smaller but unlike most people here I think overall sales combined will be up.

There is no reason to think that console gaming will shrink. And although I don't necessarily expect PS5 to outsell PS4 (could come close) I really have a hard time seeing XSX missing XBO barring another colossal screw up, which less face it, isn't likely to happen. MS seems eager to learn and change from XBO.

PS5 sales down due to slow start from price.
MS sells less XB than they did this gen, way smaller gap with PS5 tho
Nintendo next console is a flop.

Less Xbox then this gen? I’d think the positive start, new studios and a rumoured $300 console would practically guarantee 50+ million 

I agree. Microsoft really had to come back from Wii U level weekly sales early on. XSX will not start with the odds against it - unless the launch price is way above the one of the PS5, of course, but I really doubt that.

Yeah, US for Microsoft and Europe for Sony cancel each other out more or less, making the advantage of Sony in Japan and RoW the winning plus for the PS5.
