What do you think

I am agree 50 57.47%
 
I have my own prediction 7 8.05%
 
I am slightly agree 10 11.49%
 
Yes , but 6 6.90%
 
No i am totally not agree 7 8.05%
 
Lets see and wait 7 8.05%
 
Total:87

I think we should see comparable numbers like PS360 generation, lifetime and globally. Maybe not as close as PS360, but not as clear as PS4XBO.

If you think Series X can outsell PS5 then you have a problem. MS better forget home consoles and focus on their cloud platform. Xcloud right now is a shit ass service stuck in 720P/30FPS because they felt a great idea to use Xbox One S to bake it.

yeah, but it is the worst cloud platform as of now. Even Stadia back in 2016 (Project Stream) during in beta already had better image quality.

but with more latency
and lets not forget they designed the XSX chip that it can be easily implemented in the serverblades so they can upgrade it in the future

i think you worry you pretty head over the wrong "issues"

The sales gap between the systems will narrow but the PS5 will easily outsell the X series.

I think Xbox series S if the rumours are true will sale more than PS5 in North America and UK.

Bad analysis.

Microsoft is better positioned this time around than it was with the Xbox One, Harding-Rolls argues, because it has embraced a console gamer focus for the system, has invested heavily in its first-party studio system, will have a Halo game ready for launch, and is expected to sell the Series X for the same price as the PS5.

XSX at the same price as the PS5 would cut a lot more into Sony's sales than this analyst predicts.

I won't make a prediction about the two consoles myself, because some crucial information is still unknown, such as price. But if the two consoles had price parity, then Microsoft would do more than just slightly better than with the Xbox One.

Why xbox has been cheaper than the ps4 for the majority of the generation and it's been smashed in sales.

Not sure why people are saying the xbox will do better this time since theyre not making mistakes, to gain back market they've lost they have to win people back not just "not stuff up again". Playstation hasn't dropped the ball like the ps3 or Microsoft with the xbox one the default opening isn't there like in the pass, they've done little to show why you should leave the playstation line.

We need the price to predict it better.
Anyway, PS5 should outsell the XSX regardless, the question is by how much.
If both are priced equally the prediction looks alright.
If the PS5 is $100 more than XSX we might have very close numbers.
If the XSX is $100 more PS5 should 2:1 it as soon as 2021, not 2024.
As I expect price parity with the $500 pricetag, his prediction seems decent right now.

The Xbox One hasn't been smashed in the USA despite being the clearly inferior console, that's why an XSX at the same price of the PS5 would gain market share. We already know that the XSX is more powerful than the PS5 and it's also looking likely that the XSX will have the better launch titles, so at least in the USA the XSX would be chosen over the PS5. That may only be a single country, but it's the biggest country for the console market by far and has a long history of not pledging loyalty to any console manufacturer.



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