For Ampere analyst Piers Harding-Rolls SS5 will sell almost double of Xbox Series X by the end of 2024. The Sony console, in fact, according to his forecasts will sell about 66 million consoles against the 37 million of the new machine from Microsoft. The video game market in this way will continue to decline, slightly exceeding 100 million units sold in total.
According to this prediction, the next generation of consoles will also be dominated by Sony consoles. Piers Harding-Rolls he predicts that the challenge will be very tight in the first years of life of the consoles, but the gap will be destined to grow from 2022 onwards. At the end of the life cycle, scheduled for 2024, PlayStation 5 will have sold 66 million console. Xbox Series X will stop at 37 million.
In this way the combined consoles will slightly exceed i 103 million of consoles, compared to the current 157 million consoles of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (they were 109 million units in a comparable period of time), 171 million of PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and finally 179 million of Xbox and PlayStation 2.
The expected trend is the result of the excellent work that Sony has done with thecurrent generation console. Thanks to the excellent work on exclusives and the ability to have imposed the PlayStation brand in the world, Sony can count on a legacy “difficult to dismantle“in such a short time. The good work that Microsoft has been doing in recent months, however, will allow Xbox Series X to have an excellent launch and to sell 3.3 million consoles by the end of 2020, against 4.6 million of PS5.
This provided that the selling price is between 450 and 500 dollars, as required by Piers Harding-Rolls.
