PS5 with the supplies issues and the stronger competition from Xbox will have a tough time catching up with the PS4.

Xbox Series X|S has a lead of more than 2 million Over the Xbox One.

PS5 Has a deficit of more than 2 million when compared to the PS4.

Interesting that the X|S lead over their last gen console is so close to the PS5 deficit to their last gen counterpart.

Nice to see Xbox Series' lead over its predecessor grow to over 2 million in spite of heavy supply shortages.
MS definitely learned their lessons and played a stronger hand this gen than last.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Every platform holder seems to get arrogant at least once. That was Sony with the PS3 and Microsoft with the Xbox One. And Nintendo? Well they do their own thing.

I would say Nintendo got arrogant with the Wii U and 3DS, thinking they could just do whatever they wanted after the success of the DS and Wii without actually listening to the market.
