The answer will either surprise you, or be abundantly obvious to you. No middle ground.
PlayStation or Nintendo
Whoever has more inventory to sell, in the long run PlayStation of course, but this holiday season is going to depend on inventory.
Obviously, they're releasing a new console, I don't see how this is even a question.
PS5.. Nintendo has nothing hot coming out this year
Don't be stupid. Nobody wants to buy pc parts as christmas presents.
@BrettAwesome Oh you ignorant boy!... I know it's strange news, but if you don't want to buy PC parts, you can purchase complete PC's (called desktops) or even compact PC's (called laptops). Do you live under a rock? As for me, I wouldn't mind one bit a PC part (new graphics card) for my Christmas.
Ignorant? Boy? Nobody buys PC's as presents! A console is simple fun. It's a toy. It puts a smile on kids faces. Even grandma can manage to say "that new Playstation" down at the store. Buying a pc is boring. It's the kind of shit you associate with an office building or stupid brats with "monster energy" trucker caps. PC's are great. But nobody wants to buy you a new PC or an RTX3080 for christmas. It's the kind of shit you're expected to pay for with the money you made from your paper route
Pc is its own thing, not sure why PC gamers are so protective. Console gamers are only interested in gaming not the I am inadequate be have a monster pc to compensate. Sorry to all the pc gamers who love gaming, and understand gaming on every system, but PC gamers who come in spouting there nonsense about superiority aren't gamers and are more interested in telling every one how dominant they are, when in reality not one single console gamer cares at all about how fast your pc is. We just like to game.
Sorry lelo. Brett is closer to being right than ignorant. Nobody buys pc's as gifts. Its not troll comment. Sometimes the pc crowd suffer from FOMO when their platform isn't factored in. Sorry guys, this is clearly about consoles
Lol, come on. I'm a PC gamer even, but you can't deny that consoles will do far better over the holidays.
@BrettAwesome - I mean do you only rely on your parents to buy you stuff? You never make purchases as "gifts" for yourself? Don't kid yourself, plenty of people will build custom computers using Black Friday prices or whatever. Buying a PC might be boring as you said, building one isn't.
Neo I think sales would be the barometer therfore implying parents buying gifts is somehow unrealistic or implying saddo's rely on parents makes little sense as a retort. Holiday season is the absolute best time for gifting and pc's rarely fall in the category of gifts if you're being honest especially in relation to consoles. What's so offensive about this notion that people have to start calling people names? Lol
I don't know. But I do know who it WON'T be... Lol
Did you just assume xbox will not come on top? 😏
No one's going to "come out on top" this holiday season. All of them are going to sell well - sell out product - because consumers are freaking consumers who mindlessly consumer. What's going to matter - if it matters - is the post feeding-frenzy when actual worth and value can be determined. That very likely where MS more than Sony is going to fall short. Given the former's history of underperforming with 1st party.
It's really telling how you don't mention who, but we all know exactly who you're talking about. I guess thats what happens when they don't have a single exclusive launching with a console.
that's also what happens when you are a sad fanboy who worries so much about what others do..
Spoken like a true fan boy neondir😂😂
If xbox comes out on top with a new console with no games then it's a bad sign indeed for the games industry
So very true...
But but gamepass....
Another much needed article courtesy of gamingbolt. It will come down to who can meet demand between Sony and Nintendo.
If we're mainly talking NPD then MS and Sony will be equal I think. People forget that Xbone performed comparably to ps4 during the launch weeks until its sales fell off a cliff. Enthusiasts with money on their hands will buy up all the launch stock for sure. It happens every gen. That said, I feel that Nintendo is more positioned to meet demand for Switch this holiday than anyone, so I actually expect it to outsell both Ps5 and XsX everywhere. Sony will likely sell more hardware as a whole thanks to ps4 though.
Amazon comes out on top
We know who will be at the bottom 😁
😂They should be used to it by now. Being at the bottom isn’t any fun, but to them “They who shall NOT BE NAMED” are probably content being there. I mean, their certainly not hurting for cash🤦🏼♂️
Hey don't be mean. Winning from behind is still something to brag about 😉
Who cares, I jus want good games
Yep, that's why it'll be PlayStation or Nintendo.
Exactly. They both bring the games.
Not xbox gamers
Playstation with games like Nioh2, Dreams, FF7, GoT, TLoU2, SM MM, Demon souls and R&C all in one year. Undeniable greatness.
Based on the pre-order demand and the success of their previous-gen console, the answer is fairly obvious.
Hahaha. I'm not touching this.
It's a TRAAAP!!!
All I'll say is, you think a certain group of gamers are salty now, wait till about March next year when PS5 has had 3 or 4 bangers already and sold 10 million. Sodium levels be peaking.
By what's going on at the moment the dumb ass scalpers win the holiday.
PC and Nintendo clearly
PC wasn’t included in this. You know ya’ll are the “ELITE” master race, far superior than us console peasants😜 I kid, I kid, buddy. But still, I say PlayStation and Nintendo!
@TheColbertinator you loose faith in your beloved XBOX?? not even mention it in your "Winner top list" lol
A lot of it will come down to availability. You will have the Switch going for $299 but probably sold out everywhere and with very dated graphics, then Microsoft trying to sell GamePass with very low entry prices and the PS5 doing a more traditional console.
They're all gonna be sold out everywhere. And what do graphics have to do with this?
mmmmmh either Nintendo or PlayStation. both have very good games this time around
Just realized that sounds like a sugar substitute. XD
Nintendo is out of the situation there's zero next gen console but ppl will flock to it as its a handheld with fitness games mini games and grannie games. It's only Sony or Microsoft
No all 3 are of the same gen, so they should all be counted.
Oh jesus.. more of this lame made up shit. Gen's don't matter! What matters is what is CURRENTLY competing for the same market. Switch sold 55 million copies since 2017. That's a fact, no matter what gen you chose to call it. Your point it STUPID!
Who commented saying consoles are toys. 450 quid is far from a toy.
It is compared to a $699 gpu that nobody outs under a christmas tree
I think sony if they can somewhat keep up with demand. Whether people like to admit it or not spidersman sells. Im a little miffed that I'm buying the game again BUT if werent insomniac I wouldn't believe its "more than a simple upscale" and the fact that I still play spiderman on my pro all the time. I think sony wins but wouldn't put it pass nintendo do be the best even with next gen consoles releasing.
Battle will be between PlayStation and Nintendo. Not sure why Xbox is even in the discussion honestly?
Because it's 2020, and we have to be inclusuve to minorities.
so very true looool
Playstation by far. Though it could be possible with some deception tactics that casuals could go for the cheap xbox thinking theyll get the same performance as other consoles but only digital. Wouldnt put it above microsoft to do that. Their ads could show how great games look and at the end show xbox series s instead of the x. All they need to do is add small print during the gameplay reel saying it was captured on the x. Very deceptive but totally expecting it.
299$ will be win. Sad but it's truth. Because mostly parents or people doesn't know the Power and overall difference between PS5 Digital and Xbox Series S. Both is coming to market under Next generation gaming console but one of them is next gen console other is just lower spec's typical Microsoft lie.
Granny will be a the store saying "playstation". NOT "$299". Price does sell, but not as much as brand recognition. Nobody cares about xbox anymore. That's why the didn't sell. Those who abandoned microsoft this gen are not likely to return. They got burned once, and right now PS is just a more tempting proposition
Personally, gamers. We all win. New gen, new games... I always love new stuff
It will be Nintendo.
Sales wise most likely but game wise, that will be PS5.
PS 5 has no real games this holiday. Demon’s Souls is the reason I’m buying a PS5 but let’s be real here, Souls games are NOT system sellers and for a very particular audience. Now if we was talking next year holiday then I’d say yes you are correct. Switch has to many games out now and a few more coming soon so I seriously doubt the PS5 will out sell the Switch this holiday. I’m not even convinced it will outsell Series X.
If PlayStation doesn’t have the games, in what universe will the Series X stand a chance? This has to be a parody post, as it is that illogical. OT: It’ll be down to Nintendo or PlayStation.
What games does the PS5 have this holiday that are MUST HAVE? I’ll wait...
I named two actually, but when you're so wrapped in nonsense, you tend to miss little details like that. Still waiting to hear what Xbox Series X has that could lead it to beat the PS5, since you tried to avoid answering that. I need to hear this "truth". :)
