Yeah I don't see the PS4 reaching 120M. Xbox One will limp to 50M.
I think this is the last year for both the PS4 and Xbox One. Microsoft will probably discontinue the Xbox One either later this year or early next. Sony seems to love keeping their older systems around even when it barely sells anything, but they do want a fast transition. I'll predict sometime next year Sony will discontinue the PS4.

Most of the charts seem to be missing the 2020 data for PS5 and Series X/S?

The first three charts are just the numbers for the first month of the year as a way to compare the sales year-over-year.
