It will only be limited by production. Whatever Sony can produce, they will sell.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

So if Covid will help PS5 and the high price and lack of exclusives will make the year to be a lackluster one.

Where is the Sony is Doomed thread?

Whoa, when did this betting feature become available?

A year and a half ago.

How does the payout work?

The linked post explains it (if it hasn't changed). Basically you lose your wager if you pick the wrong option and get 150% if you're right. The payout is triggered by a mod (who selects the correct option). For this I put it in my sig, so that I remember next year to ping a mod.

If there wasn't strong demand for the console there wouldn't be as many scalpers.

This isn't necessarily true. Scalpers are doing it because they perceive the product will be popular or at least in small enough supply.  Also, as others and myself have pointed out before, the launch window is never indicative of lifetime sales. They always do well at launch which is why you have scalpers (make a quick buck on those people that have to have it). They're actions aren't indicative of how actual popular the product is.

Sure launch window doesn't ensure lifetime sales. But if there wasn't demand from even scalped consoles they wouldn't be continuing to scalp even a month after release and we will see lack of availability probably until April.

What did the PS4 do in the 2nd year?

@twintail These are the numbers for second calendar year and first 12 months. 



Aw, I guess I’m just part of the crowd with my 15-17 bet. It looks to me like it is either that or the just under 15 mil bet. Main factors:
How long does Covid last? More stuck at home will be a bonus unless the economy collapses (now unlikely with vaccines incoming)
DO they get all the games out.? Lineup looks great as long as not too many delays
How is 4K penetration? I feel like there is a lack of enthusiasm to both 4K and next gen consoles, but if people Have the latter, they might also Want the former.

Hi @couchmonkey I agree with you, I believe that it is a toss up right now between the 12.5-15 and the 15-17.5, it actually surprises me that so many opted for 15-17.5 and so few for the lower one. Personally I went with the 15-17.5, but that is just because I like to consoles sell as much as possible, I am an optimist. But really that 12.5-15 is extremely likely in my opinion.

Just out of curiosity, how do you earn more VGC$? (apart from betting)

In your Profile you can click on VG$ to see a balance to get an impression which action netted you how much. As I see it you get major VG-Cash for increasing your level (which is done by posting and stuff). Besides that you get VG$ for adding to the game database. And you can place more bets in the prediction league. I have old entries from 2008 with VG$ for forum activity, but this doesn't seem to be the case anymore, except the level-up bonus.

Besides that I don't know about anything, which doesn't mean there aren't other ways to net shiny VG-currency.
