I didn't wanna come off as rubbing it in I guess. But yeah, the ship has long since sailed, question now is whether PS5 will continue the decline.

I guess it is about time to drop some of the Gap Charts now that I'll be adding a bunch of new ones soon with the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S out. 

what are dropping now ?

don't remove the close battles, or the interesting ones, such as PS3&360 vs PS4&XB1, or PS4 vs Wii in US, or PS4 vs DS.

Interesting ones are staying. It is just a few of them are clearly over and I need to make room for a bunch of new ones.

Which ones will be going?



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

So Switch has gained by more in the last 12 months than it needs to close the gap.
The question now is far through next year it will take for Switch to take the lead. Before the holidays? During the holidays?

Don't forget Xbox One sales will be far lower in 2021 than in 2020.
