Looks like for 2021 the PS5 did slightly worse than expected by this website's visitors, although it's the semiconductor shortages that prevented the PS5 from getting into its designated 14.0-15.9m bracket.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Around the Network

17.9 millions
Bonus: Exclusive Horizon
Multiplat Elden ring



16.8-18.7 million
Horizon



...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

Around 18 million. 20 million or so would be more possible if there weren't such supply chain issues.
PS5 will probably peak in 2024, maybe 2023 when supply issues are hopefully less significant than 2020-2022.

Bonus: Marvel's Spider-Man 2. It's one of the ninth generation games I want a PS5 for.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 144 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

I'll go 17 million, Final Fantasy XVI is my most anticipated PS5 game overall.



Around the Network

Not really sure, at least more than 16mil.



I voted 14-15.9 expecting fairly minor improvements in the supply situation, but now I'm thinking that might have been on the cautious side.

Regardless I'm commited - 15-16 mil is now my prediction.



Major Switch Titles Launch Aligned

2021 predictions:

  • Switch - 27m
  • PS5 - 15.5m
  • Xbox Series - 10m

Looks like PS5 will probably end up around 13.2m for 2021 so I think it will sell 3m more so 16.2m for 2022.



Between 15-17m. I voted 16-17.9m



I need the names and addresses of those that voted less than 8 million, it is obvious that they aren't well and while at the moment their delusions only impact the reputation of us VGChartz posters so no damage at all, it may spread so once again I ask for info about their whereabouts so men in white coats who after the post Trump slump in the need for their services can once again be gainfully employed.
