So just before PS4 arrives PS3 should sit around 85m.


Doesn't seem likely. If the PS3 releases November next year, then it would need to sell 15m from now to then in order to reach your prediction. The PS3 has never sold 15m/year and its definitely not going to happen in 2013.



Who says it's going to launch in November? Also, it would be less than 15 mil considering the numbers reported were 2 weeks ago... probablly 14.5mil.

Lets say Q1 2014 when PS4 impact is still relatively low. I think its safe to say PS3 will set around 83-85m on Q1 2014, and will keep on selling 15m concurrently with the PS4. As PS3 sales will shift to emerging markets.

a good milestone 70m shipped

as of nov 4th,do they ship every week then sony or monthly how do they work these figures or is it in quarters i guess,how many does these leave on the shelves for chrimbo



They constantly send shipments out on a weekly basis. However, they only report their numbers every three months for their quarterly financials... however, they just hit a milestone that their competitor just reported a month ago so they released a special new release

right,thats what i'd assume

more than 595m s/ware as of 30th sept 2012,i assume that is shipped,i have always been critical of under tracking PS3 s/ware but thats not too bad right,what vgc says 592m or something but i think they have adjusted it in the last year maybe,not sure

a good milestone 70m shipped 

as of nov 4th,do they ship every week then sony or monthly how do they work these figures or is it in quarters i guess,how many does these leave on the shelves for chrimbo

pretty good for move £15m units the argument we have over move doesn't really matter as it's all sales to sony it's not as if move s/ware rockets off the shelves.it's all sold navs,move kits,dildos or whatever unless i am mistaken


Apparently the 595 million software units is of March 31st 2012. PS3 software is now over 660 million.

so the OP is wrong or i read it wrong *6 as of 30 sept 2012,if what you sau is true then they still have it way undertracked which we always said

14.5m is still unlikely. If it sold 14.5m, then the PS3 would magically reverse current downward trends to an extreme degree. Hell, it would match its peak numbers. very unlikely. And If the PS4 launches in December, then the Ps3 would need to sell about 12-13m in 2013 in order to reach 85m. 12-13m is very unlikely.

PS3 exclusives will be flooding the PS3 in 2013. It will inspire sales at all points of the year. It could happen.

Magically reverse downward trend? I didn't know an inevitable price drop was magic.

It makes no sense to release the PS4 in Q1 2014. Why would they miss a launch holiday when its only a few months away? When was the last time a console launched during the first quarter?

Good job Sony and the ps3. The amount of butt hurt in this thread is amazing. Why can't you people be happy or just discuss your hate for everything Sony some where else. Are you mad the ps3 isn't the next dreamcast? And they remain relevant in video games?


Well there is a lot of elements to there trip to 70m. To ignore all that is really a great way for people to put there head in the sand. Great for sony they reached 70m million shipped. Don't talk about how they did it or what is involved because it might hurt ps3 fans feelings. Thats why we can't talk about that because facts matter and also hurt.

70m is great milestone. Now personally I want sony to succeed to create competition and bring my price's down for my nintendo/MS purchases.

O yea it is looking more likely that sony is going to be the next dreamcast. So I wouldn't go gloating.  One more credit downgrade and it might be all over. Which non of us that want cheap price's want. So don't just assume you now the answer to why people are bringing up sony's massive smoking pile of financial disaster they have created for them selfs. 70m is great but not when you look at the money they lost. Look I talked sh-t on MS last time around for stupid decisions. Not on this site but I was the first to call them out.

"Sony going to be the next Dreamcast"? Do you read what you write?

History has shown us that this far into the generation, a price cut isn't going to push a console to the extreme amounts that you're suggesting.

I was talking about a situation where PS4 would already have been launched, thats why I said in my first sentence 'Q1 2014 when PS4 impact is still relatively low", since you know, the system is brand new, it wouldn't cannibalze ps3 sales.
