    Analyst Predicts PS5 Will Outsell Xbox Series X And Series S Combined

    Since the PlayStation 5 was announced, we’ve had nothing but faith that it will massively outsell Microsoft’s offering. After all, with Microsoft leaning hard into PC gaming as part of its strategy and dividing its player base with two separate models (and there are rumours of a third) - each of which has different specs - it’s hard to imagine Microsoft taking the crown.
