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

Of course PS5 will sell more consoles. Xbox could have more players in its overall ecosystem. Who knows the ratios. I just know there is no way Xbox can do worse then this gen. They starting on the right foot and after July people will finally see they have more then the trinity.



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

With Japan and Europe never actually being on Microsofts side, it is a safe bet PS5 will perform better than XBSX, regardless of price, since 650 EU PS3 managed to sell great despite being overpriced.

so for whom is it a good deal consumers get ripped off?

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.

Too difficult to say how well either system will do given the World's current state of affairs HollyGamer-San. Keep in mind that 2013 did not have something like COVID-19 to possibly derail the sales of the PS4 and the Xbox One. In addition, Microsoft gift wrapped an immense lead to Sony within their first two years of their lifetime. Microsoft could not recover from that.


Most importantly though is the fact that neither Sony nor Microsoft have announced the price for either system. In the United States, price is king. I understand that the U.S. is not the only market but Microsoft has been okay in Europe but has performed very poorly in Japan. However, I believe this statement will be more important due to the current circumstances at hand.


Hopefully the pricing though for both will be good.

Exactly.  I will hold off on making any prediction until price point is known.  People tend to forget how huge an impact on the 5th Generation it was when Sony announced the price of the PlayStation at $299 just moments after Sega's presentation had announced $399 for the price of the Saturn.  Just last generation the PS4 released at $399 against the Xbox One's $499.  By the time Microsoft removed the Kinnect to get the price down, it was too late in a long line of missteps.  When it comes to similarly powered consoles, price can play a huge factor in sales and momentum.  The only time an Xbox console ever had a lead in sales (for most of the gen) was when it was the cheaper alternative out of the gate.  With brand power solidly behind the PlayStation, I firmly think that Microsoft's only chance to come out swinging this gen is to launch at a lower price point.

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

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 agree we have a saying what the farmer doesn't know he doesn't eat, but you present it as a good thing while it leaves a full world unexplored.
it might be the life the farmer wants, but it leaves him unknowing that the fisherman eats pretty damn good aswell

Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

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)

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.
