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 that sounds about right; better PR and first party support should raise it above the Xbone, but I don't see it having the long legs, 10 year lifespan, or Kinect boost that elevated 360 to the sales it reached.

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!

Come on man, there's no need to be rude. Let's keep the discussions civil shall we?



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

It also doesn't have the red ring of death. No one owned just one Xbox 360, they owned multiple. lol

Can confirm; my first one died on me and I bought a second one to replace it. The flipside of that though is that its reputation as faulty hardware may have dissuaded a lot of potential buyers and so hurt hardware sales as well as helped them.

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

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

So? FF7 Remake was announced during year one of the PS4, took until the final year of PS4 to get 'FF7 Remake Disc 1 Part 1 Nomura Remix Edition' (ironically on 2 discs if you bought the physical copy).

Wrong, FFXV was announced during year one of the PS4, came out in 2016. FFVIIR was announced in E3 2015, came out in 2020.

My mistake. Those years really just blend together in my memory.

Same here.  When my original 360 came down with the RROD, I got it "fixed" at Digital Press Videogames, but that fix didn't last long.  Which is why I think they stopped offering the service after a while.  I later upgraded to the 360 Slim which still works to this day.  To be honest, I haven't had great luck with any of Microsoft's consoles.  The power button on my original XBox stopped working, my 360 RROD'd, and my XBox One's power supply stopped working.  



How much was it for Switch the previous week (Oct 10 to 16, I guess)? I have not found it to know how it looks in the second week post OLED launch.
