Hopefully by now Xbox have adjusted their manufacturing ratio to make more of the X and less of the S.
The latter is sitting unsold on shelves around the world while the X is snapped up instantly.



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

I remember some people saying that for Switch to outsell the PS4 would depend on Nintendo support.

Now it looks like it's just a matter of time.

@curl-6 The Switch might even pass the Game Boy before the PS4 surpasses the Game Boy (assuming the PS4 does surpass it, which I still consider to be likely, especially with a lot of big PS5 games also releasing on PS4 into 2022).

Yeah i still expect PS4 will pass the Gameboy, it only has to sell another 2.9 million, and since I don't expect it to be discontinued until 2023 or later, I think it can inch its way there.

Isn't PS5 vs PS3 just cruel towards PS3? PS5 is gonna crush it right from the start and never look back.
