Note: VGChartz 2024 estimates through March includes 14 weeks, while 2023, 2022, and 2021 estimates includes 13 weeks. We follow the dates for Circana (NPD), which has 53 weeks in 2024 and they put the extra week in January.

Xbox Series has its worst Q1 since its launch. At this point it's hard to believe that it can survive 3 or 4 more years. It needs some kind of "Kinect" thing to breathe a second life into it. A stronger or white Series X without disc drive won't make the difference...

It's over for them. It's just Sony vs Nintendo from now on. PS5 Pro vs switch 2

Nintendo Successor takes the dub easily vs PS5

Without GtA6, the biggest multimedia event in history. I doubt it

GTA6 isn't a PS5 exclusive. It has to share its sales with multiple systems. Nintendo systems don't need any GTA to sell 100+ million units.

It's a console exclusive for awhile and Rockstar has confirmed that. So that only leaves PS5 VS Xbox on launch, and you literally just implied in your first comment that Xbox is struggling to survive. You think GTA6 on a console that is struggling to survive is going to take away any limelight from PlayStation. Not one bit.

I think that people who are familiar with Microsoft and who have gotten an Xbox in the past that enjoy GTA will be getting GTAVI with an Xbox Series.
If anything the GTAVI sales will be 45/55 Xbox Series/PS5 at least until it’s released on computer. Then it’ll be 25/35/45 Xbox Series/PS5/PC.
And I think GTAVI will sell near 10M its first quarter.
And will only boost console sales by 25% (ex. So if they are selling 1M units a week they’ll be selling 1.25M a week.)

Doubt it. Everyone knows Xbox is dead now. Anyone who buys a console just got GTA6 is getting a PS5. Just like all theirs friends have.
