20 milllion left, PS4 alone might be enough.

It depends on the legs of the PS4. It will likely add around 10 million this year depending on how many consoles FF7R and Last of Us 2 move, and if Sony drops the price or not. I'm guessing Xbox One will sell around 5 million more units before it is done.

I think PS4 can add 10 mil this year and around 10 mil until it's discontinued. If not Xbone will fill what's left.

Yeah that makes sense. So Lifetime PS4 sales 125-130 million. ~10 million in 2020 to bring sales to 116 million at the end of the year. 4-5 million in 2021 to bring sales to 120-121 million. Then another couple years on the market.

10M in 2020 will put PS4 at 118.9M not 116M. When your comparing last gen and this gen shipments matter more so then this site "estimates".

I think gen 8 is going to stay ahead in the end in spite of the downward trend.
