Historically whenever Sony have dropped the price, sales have always gone up. So If you have other proof as to why a price cut would cause sales to drop instead, I'd love to read that link to see how that happened.
I don't say sales will drop after a price cut, but that sales will be down until a pricecut comes. More details further down
did you see what a one week price drop did in november 2017?
The one thing you so casually dismissed is the one thing that the PS4 can do that matters the most.
And I saw what happened the month after when the price got normal again - sales dropped like a rock (comparatively speaking). It means to me that the pricecut is overdue and sales will be slow (again, comparatively speaking) until that pricecut comes. The problem is that I fear it won't come until the holiday season, and then it will be too late to make up for the sales they lost in the months before compared to the last year
Good to see that it's already up 5K. It will be interesting to see how this year unfolds.
It's still an estimation at this point which could be way off (both too high or too low). We will know more after we get some solid data outside of Japan. I do think though that the estimation is on track here, it's on the later months that I fear the PS4 won't be able to keep up with last year anymore
