PS360 are going to explode soon but I don't think they will ever past gen 8th.

Yeah, it was around this mark that the PS3 started really picking up steam and the 360 maintained it's groove well e ough, but the PS4 is carrying a lot of deadweight with the Xbox One.

360 and PS3 sold over 170 million combined. PS4 and XB1 won't sell that much. In the long run PS3/360 will win.

I mean PS4 can reach 120 millions so can Xbox One reach 50 millions. But we'll see.

I believe in the end, the PS3/360 will out perform the PS4/XBO and it's entirely Microsoft's fault. But the PS4 and Switch will prove that the console business is better (sales wise, ecosystem wise) than the previous generation.

50-55m for XBO, 110-120m for PS4. It could go either way, but I definitely think PS4+XBO has a good chance of beating PS3+360.

Well yes, i don't even think is that unlucky for PS4/XBO to sell, simply if i have to choise, i think PS3/360 will likely win. I don't think they will sell much under that tho.

PS3 and 360 were both selling great last gen. This gen, X1 sales aren't staying on pace.

The PS4 on its own will outsell the combined sales of PS360 combined. 170+ million sales for PS4 is possible.
