Bought my buddy a Switch for his B-Day. Definitely gonna get that 4K Switch if it indeed winds up being a thing in 2021.

I can't re-buy a Switch right now. And Sony won't release PS5 pre-orders. And PS4 is dead now lol. Sony PS5 sales will be insane. On track to outpace PS2 according to analyst. Love Nintendo but Sony anticipation is insane especially come November

@YanisFromFrance I don't see that happening friend. Sony PS2 is the best selling console ever to date. 155+ million sold. Nintendo Switch is a beast but I think its going to be difficult to do that. Sony when they don't mess up tend to outselll Nintendo and Microsoft every generation. If Nintendo releases their 4k Switch they can put the pressure on Sony and maybe it won't be easy for Sony to pull it off :D and the anticipation is extremely high with PS5. I saw article on CNET and Forbes that Sony PS5 is projected to outpace the Sony PS2 and outsell the Microsoft Series X and Nintendo Switch. Insane friend :O

@Original I did not hear of that news, friend. That's very impressive for Nintendo very insane lol. Sony PS5 and Nintendo Switch will be at battle during next fiscal year and through out 2021. I can see Nintendo Switch selling 25-30 million next year and Sony PS5 selling 20-25 million next year if Sony can keep up with the PS5 demand. Nintendo Switch is entering it's 4th year and Sony PS5 will entering is infancy year. Sony PS4 is at the later parts of its life now and Microsoft is gearing up for Series X release. Nintendo and Sony battling the home console sales will be chaos for all :D!
