That calls for a comparison PS4+XBone -vs- PS5+XSeries ^^

That is a good comparison. I'll add it to the list of ideas for comparison articles. 

Still hoping we get Xbox Series vs 3DS given that's the next system up from Xbone that we have tracking for. :)



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

I've got it written down. I am just not sure it will be very popular views wise.

I feel like because it's comparing two brands, much like PS4 vs DS, it should draw interest from both Nintendo and Xbox fans.

Love this.



The Wii will fall to the Switch soon with the PS1 not far behind.



The Switch will go from being just under 12 million behind to at least over 40 million ahead at the end of its life which is quite the comeback against a console as successful as the Wii.



I'll always love the Wii, and it deserved its 100 million+ success, but it's the Switch's time to shine now.
