I think it'll be around 14-15.9 million for the PS5 this year considering the semiconductor shortages still going on.

It will be close to 12m.  Not sure if it will be slightly above or slightly below, but I voted 10-11.9m.  PS5 is only going to see YoY growth in Europe.  The chip shortage means that Microsoft will get a bigger chunk of market share in North America.  And the Pacific nations mostly want Japanese games which means they will be Switch dominated.  I'm sure Europeans will be glad to buy a PS5 though.



I'm not expecting 2022 production to improve all that much over 2021 production, so maybe 20% more than whatever they sold through in 2021. Same for Xbox most likely, probably about 20% more than what they sold through in 2021. The global semi-conductor shortage should finally end by mid 2023 and then both Xbox and Sony will truly be able to open up the taps and see what their respective consoles can sell when supply is removed from the equation.

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.

Maybe the people who voted 18m-24m+ for 2021 were so disappointed that they are now revising their forecasts down for 2022 to even out their misguided predictions.

As for my prediction, I went with the 16-17.9m option.



Probably around 16m starting a trend of selling less than the PS4 in a year but not much less and still doing very well.

I can inform you it wasn't them, I checked and sadly they were all so dispirited that they committed virtual mass suicide and the sheer magnitude of their despair can be seen by them opting out of committing hari-kari instead choosing the most painful and humiliating way possible by joining Stadia.

Research shows Video games  help make you smarter, so why am I an idiot

It's crazy how many people think the PS5 will A) sell less than 10M or B) sell over 24M. I just think both of these are unrealistic.
