Forums - Sales Discussion - Prediction: PS5 and Xbox Series X combined will sell less than 120M.

I really doubt that. I still think the overall global market for conventional consoles will remain stable at around 170M lifetime.


In accordance to the VGC forum rules, §8.5, I hereby exercise my right to demand to be left alone regarding the subject of the effects of the pandemic on video game sales (i.e., "COVID bump").

Gotta wait for price before making any sort of prediction. But my preliminary guess would be PS5 isn't as strong as PS4 because Xbox won't trip straight out of the gate and Nintendo has an extremely popular system rather than a huge failure, this all results in more competition. Xbox I think will do a little bit better because they won't screw up from the start.

So before seeing any pricing, my total guess would be PS5 around 100million and XBSeries around 60+ million.
