Xbox Series isn't getting totally trounced by PS5, I don't expect it to reach the popularity of XB360 but it could end up in between XBoxone and XB360 numbers. Perhaps something like 70m lifetime.

Yeah I'm expecting the same, better than Xbox One but less than 360.

My Xbox Series S is my baby. It grew up into an X.

Starfield and Elder Scrolls VI might give the console enough momentum to outsell the 360.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. The 360 was amazing, but Xbox is really putting their best foot forward in terms of first-party output. I wouldn't be surprised if sales start to skyrocket once Starfield releases and quite a few of their announced games in 2023.

The race between 2020 and 2021 is too close to call at this point.  A lot of people last week were wanting to call this game at halftime when the score is close.

I think Switch is more likely to be up this year than down.  However, it's going to come down to how many Switches Nintendo is able to ship.  A lot can still happen between now and Dec. 31.

You've changed your tune, a week ago it was "likely" to sell more than 29.66m, now 28.2m is "too close to call".

Check my post again.  Reading comprehension for the win!

The gen will be pretty much over by the time TES6 is released.

I read what you wrote just fine. You said 2020 vs 2021 was too close to call, and as for your second line "likely" to pass 28.2m is not the same as "likely" to pass 29.66m.

You went from one week ago saying - "to say that Switch will be down this year is ... "very very pessimistic.""

To now saying - "I think Switch is more likely to be up this year than down.  However, it's going to come down to how many Switches Nintendo is able to ship."

So like I said, you've changed your tune.

I never gave numbers.  I said, "Switch is more likely to be up this year than down".  If you want to know my definitions of "up" and "down" and "about the same", then check out the poll in this thread (which I made).

That's true. Maybe Skyrim: Hyper Edition will be enough to make the Xbox outsell the 360.
