Hi. You asked for a PS1 VS PS4 comparation right?
PS4 - 43.50 million
PS1 - 17.60 million
PS3 took some months to get EU, that puts it a bit down. However, PS2 actually had a big advantage against PS4, since it launched almost simultaneously worldwide, while PS4 remained some months without Japan.
The comparation i made has the firsts 7 months of PS2 in Japan only, while PS4 has the first 3 months NA+EU only, so PS4 was much advantage.
PS2 - 9.3 million
PS4 - 3.1 million
PS2 - 18.8 million
PS4 - 14.3 million
Don't have EU numbers sorry.
PS4 is at 17..4M in EU. So we have 42.9M aligned for PS2 and 34,8M for PS4. Which means that PS4 sold around 81% of PS2 numbers putting it on track for 130M if both consoles follow the same pace.
The important question is, do you really still see PS3 selling more than 100m? ;)
Anyway, I don' think it will take much time to discontinue it, unless they have another price cut coming to keep it going for 2 or 3 years.
Hello Torok, sorry for the disorder.
But can i ask a question? Do you still think that PS3 will sell 100,000,000 lifetime?
I'm not so sure. I think 90M+ is basically a given, but 100M is becoming harder every day. My original prediction was based on the PS1/PS2 sales pattern, where both sold around 1/3 of their lifetime sales after the successor is out. With that math, PS3 would do 105M.
However, I'm starting to think that actually PS consoles sell 1/3 of their sales after the 5th year. PS4 launched on the 7th year of the PS3. If that's the case, PS3 would end up with 96M.

I guess people are more quick to jump into the "Nintendo is dead" bandwagon because they basically only sell consoles. Let's face it, if the X1 had sold zero units and MS had millions of unsold inventory it would still barely scratch their financial report. They have much more room to underperform before having to quit consoles. Also, notice that I said "quit". Nintendo and Sony would pretty much...
I loved the concept. But don't think that boring hardware is bad while a bunch of new stuff is good. PS2 was just a "boring" device and it still sold 160M. Games sell consoles. Not hardware....
It's pretty much expected. The LG G5 already does. Anyway, it's future proof now....
