Everything was sold... to the scalpers

Unfortunatelly a huge amount certainly was to scalpers.

Interesting. Let's see the numbers.



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)

According to my wife there are stories on Ebay of PS5's overheating en masse. Anti scalper FUD or the usual fan boy wars?Eurogamer isn't working, they would be reporting on it and probably debunk it like the vaping series X.



Well, I for one am happy that they were able to sell all of their 15 consoles.



Weird flex. It'd be very alarming if that wasn't the case...

I can believe PS5 is having a lot of issues, overheating isn't one though.

Well, that's almost always true for every console launch. Demand for a new piece of hardware will always outstirp demand, given that only a few millions are produced for the first few months.Especially for the holidays.The real test will begin in March/April.

Well, it all comes down to the Exclusive Games Lineup during 2021, and so far its way better than PS4 Lineup in 2014

Thats damn true. PS5`s first year is shaping up to be Sony`s best first year ever.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

No doubt ps5 will be number 1 gaming platform for core gamers of all ages

I'd say the best first years ever (Assuming PS5's lives up to hype) are the PS5 and Switch! 



My Console Library:

PS5, Switch

PS4, PS3, PS2, PS1, WiiU, Wii, GCN, N64 SNES, XBO, 360

3DS, DS, GBA, Vita, PSP, Android

Top 6 this generation: 
Bloodborne, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, God of War, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Dark Souls III, Red Dead Redemption II, Rock Band 4

I wonder why they don't produce way more than they think it'll sell because it all sells out instantly anyway, lol Well, this year surely was hard to plan due to the pandemic, tho.
