Their sales directly affect each other, we can see this by PS+XB combined selling similar amounts for 3 generations in a row.

PS2(157m)+XB(25m)=182m
PS3(87m)+360(86m)=173m
PS4(~125m)+XBO(~50m)=~175m

Will be very close in the end.


Barkley (on 12 January 2020)

PS3 + 360 = 173.21m PS4 + XBO = 170m-180m Will be very close in the end.

The line is going down


RolStoppable (on 11 January 2020)

Upcoming 12 months have the 360 at ~10.7m and the PS3 at ~8.3m for a total of almost 19m. The gap will continue to shrink at a fast pace.


HylianSwordsman (on 12 January 2020)

I'm thinking PS4 will probably sell about 10 million this year, XBO about 2, so the gap will once again shink by about 7 million, cutting it in half.

Had Xbox One sold 60 millions this gen would win...

But then maybe PS4 would sell less if Xbox One sold 60 millions so idk. I think it shows the small decline, a lot more people started playing on PC since 2013-2014.
