According to this chart Nintendo doesn't have a legacy console. They even lump in the 3DS with the PS4/XB1. I think it's time to ask ourselves if, at this point, Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft should be considered competition for the same market. I'd consider the Switch to be in the handheld market. One could argue Switch games are closer to mobile games than they are to current gen games (especially as the generation progresses).

Closer to mobile games in what way? Just in terms of graphics is what I'm assuming you're saying.

r2oB26d ago


Graphics, audio, multiplayer, pretty much anything technical. It’s not meant to be a knock on Switch games, they are what they are. I just feel there is too large a disparity in many areas (quantifiable areas, not subjective/ anecdotal ones) to compare Nintendo games with PS/XB games. I don’t think they occupy the same space.

Grandma's console is cleaning up the market with Xbox dumpster divin' for scraps.

What a stupid comment! You are clearly a fanboy!

I agree. Some people are so obtuse, ignorant and immature they aren't worth the time.

It'll be interesting to see if the Series S/X will pass the 50 million lifetime sales this generation, especially with GamePass. If it only sells 7 million a year, it will be close to 50 million in 7 years about the same as the Xbox One in sales. PS5 should be at 77 million in seven years if it sells 11 million a year

Destiny108027d ago

sony expects to sell 45 million in 2½ years that's 90 million in 5 years and 126 million in 7 years

the series s will do fine once the price drops to 199 with a copy of halo or something

CaptainHenry91627d ago

Not saying it's impossible but I don't see that happening. 30 -35 million is possible in 2 1/2 years

2½ year sales projections don't simply double up to present 5 year sales projections. That is not how sales projections work.

WiiU-Dude26d ago (Edited 26d ago )

It is ahead of Xbox One sales in the same time frame and it has faced infinitely worse availability. I think it will exceed Xbox One sales by 5 to 10 million. I really do. A couple reasons. One, after a year of sales, the Series S/X is only about 4.5 million behind the PS5. Not the near double in sales the PS4 had over the Xbox One. Second, this is being done with the Series S/X not having any notable exclusives (console, I'm not concerned with PC). Third, I think slowly more will consider Xbox Series S/X as the value of GamePass becomes more and more known. Just my humble opinion. No it will never catch Don't, but I think Microsoft is ok with that because, going back to PC, GamePass and their business model these days accommodates both and this makes money with both.

I paid 1200, for my Series X 8 months ago. I was going through a bad time, and needed to self indulge. After 8 months of looking for a PS5, I am happy with my purchase. Love, love, love, my Series X! Horizon 5, and Halo this fall, yes please! Flight Simulator, is amazing.

KillBill26d ago

I have to imagine that is not US dollars as if you paid that amount then you did not even try to get it cheaper. Because since launch resale offers have been far less than that in the open resale market.

Switch deserves the win considering it has the highest-rated exclusive games on Metacritic.
