it might be the life the farmer wants, but it leaves him unknowing that the fisherman eats pretty damn good aswell

History tells us PlayStation will once again outsell Xbox by a lot. But there's the all-important pricing factor to consider. Look at the seventh gen, for instance.
I think Xbox Series X will sell more than the Xbox One, and PS5 will sell less than PS4.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 144 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

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

Consumer is always satisfied with a playstation, due to huge library and 3rd party commitment.

PS1,PS2,PS3,PS4. PS5 wont be a an exception, paying even 600$ for a PS5 is totally in favour of the customer, when the competition is selling a cheaper system without enough good videogames to play. Sony is thinking about the customer experience, thats why they are never wrong since 1994. PS5 will re-confirm this.

Consumers vote with their wallets.  PS3's best sales years came after a number of price cuts.

This post contradicts your previous.

Xbox One corrected their price in the first year, the other faults were corrected before launch, the only fault they kept for the whole gen was lack of strong first party titles.

So although price is important we can't say that MS took to long to correct it.

Xbox One was selling at a greater pace than X360 and PS3 before the removal to Kinect and price cut.

i fail to see the relevance with comparing with the previous consoles

but ill go with it quite logical ps3 didn't do well because it was viewed as an "overpriced console" you can thank japanesegameslover for this quote and the xbox360 was known for the RROD

If X360 and PS3 managed to sell 85M+ with a lower momentum then we can't say the correction of the price on X1 was to late due to moment. X1 sold for less than X360 most of the gen aligned and still barely crossed 50M.

i still fail to see the relevance of comparing with the previous consoles, neither did i refer to their momentum as lower, just their sales.

momentum=/=sales even if closely related

Play Station has proven that it can sell as expensive. As i said, only Sony can get away by selling an overpriced product, the competition has no such capacity, as the record has shown. And the price of console should not judged on the console alone. PS5 deserves to be sold at 499$ or even 599$. PS4 never had big price cut and yet it is still the best-selling home console weekly in Europe, after full 7 years. PS4 is sold for 299 Euros and at launch it was sold for 399 Euros. So, only 99 euros difference since its 2013 launch. So, it seems customers dont vote with their wallers, but based on brand loyalty. And the customers will surely choose PS5, regardless of price.

I'm not sure why you are arguing that the PS5 could have stellar sales at $599 and using PS4 selling at $299 as your support?  By the way, if consumers voted on brand loyalty alone, where did the 153 million PS2 owners go when it came time to buy a PS3?  Did 70 million PS2 owners just skip playing video games the entire 7th gen?  Or did they game on other, cheaper alternatives since Nintendo and Microsoft both noticeably more than tripled their hardware sales from the previous gen?

It just shows that it wasn't a problem of momentum or tardiness to due the price cut. They had 5 years to "recover" momentum. Previous gen PS3 were able to accelerate from much lower and worse momentum.
