Except for the PS4, which was the more powerful system.

The PS5 will outsell the XSX though, most people won't care about the specs.

If Microsoft gets this whole Xbox ecosystem working, I'd consider a new Xbox only with the consideration that I can buy one copy of a game and play it on my PC and Xbox. As it stands, the last traditional console I've bought is an Xbox 360.

PS4 Pro is less powerful than the XBO-X, So that doesn't work...
brute forcing the specs won't win your console wars though. Nintendo won with the Wii with a pocket calculator processor.

Lets say the console wars are a door. Microsoft get through with a barrage of cannons (ever since the original, the specs have been brute force), Sony get through with a battering ram, and Nintendo get through with a small lock pick kit.
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!

PS4 had the generation won way before X & Pro came out.

XSX being as powerful as it is will help it sell fairly well, if it's not too expensive. With the Australian dollar tanking, these new consoles could be pushing towards the AU$1000 mark.

I guess it comes down to games then... ;) specs are irrelevant.
in terms of games:
Master System > NES
SNES > Megadrive
PS1 > N64 > Saturn
DC > GC > Xbox > PS2
Xbox 360 > anything.
PS4 > Switch > XBO
next gen: First system to get a GTA is the one I will buy!

I own and enjoy all the current gen.. Cannot say I will buy ANY of the new ones untill there's a game I want to play.
At present, the only single game in all of the industry that could get me to buy a new console is the next GTA...
No GTA, Next gen consoles are worth about $5-10 absolute tops... when one HAS GTA, $500,800,1000. DONE!

The way it works is, Sony wins a generation and then gets complacent, then has to make the effort again.
Since Sony won the PS4 gen, I'm guessing the PS5, they'll slack off and MS will win... THEN the PS6 will come out with full backwards compatibility and games out the wazoo!

PS2 is the highest selling console ever, so they didn't really get complacent that gen. There are a lot of great games on it, and it got the GTA games first.

Considering Sony consoles have all had highest units sold for each gen since launch, I don't know how they get complacent. :olol:

I just don't like the consoles, I prefer Nintendo/MS offerings, along with PC

I didn’t realize that PS3 ever beat 360, but it appears after 6 years they finally outsold the 360. Since it took until nearly the end of the PS3 lifespan to finally become popular, I personally still give the win to 360.

Oh I 100% agree. The 360 was great. I wonder how many of those consoles sold were same customer multiple purchase due to RROD :olol: But yeah, it definitely took forever for the PS3 to finally overtake 360 last gen.

I went though 4 of them, but that was all under warranty. The first one scratched disks up, then the other 3 all red ringed.

I had my original which did RRoD. I got it replaced but bought a new, Arcade model. Then I bought a model S I think? Then last Christmas I bought another one for the sole purpose of modding it. I got it modded, now have barely used it. :olol:
