XBO also had Kinect dragging itself down and a terrible reputation from the completely botched reveal at E3 the year before while the XS has a much better reputation plus Gamepass.

Goes to show what good marketing, good communication and good advertising can do.

If there's anything I've noticed about console sales since gen 8 it's that games don't seem to affect the launch much. People just seem to be hungry for new hardware.

The fact that the series and ps5 are drop-in replacements helps. Never had an xbox or playstation? Good. You have 8 years worth of games to play already. Even more for the Xbox although not every game from 360 and original.

People seem to choose the ecosystem first and play whatever games come out. The ps5 debatably had a better launch, but the sony exclusives have mostly been cross gen.

So I don't think launch lineups matter as much as marketing and hype these days.
