Have we seen the best of Playstation as a brand from a sales perspective.

My thoughts;

The Vita is not looking likely to get any real traction and PS3 in decline now.

Sony needs PS4 to be a major comeback if the Playstation brand isn't to continue its decline from a SALES perspective.

Nice work. I know it would take a while but could you add in Microsoft and Nintendo total shipments to that graph? (Microsoft is at a disadvantage there but it would still rock )

I wonder how they'll do next year? Vita should sell better and there'll be a PS4 to keep total sales up but PSP, PS2 and PS3 will be down YOY in FY 2013.

Working on it.

Vita is Vita.

PS2 is a 12 years old console and PS3 and PSP sales are showing signs of fatigue after 6-7 years in the market.

I don't see how this means PS brand is dying. But I do think PS4 will be a real test for Sony.

Diminishing.  Not dying.

PSV won't achieve PSP

If PS4 can't even achieve PS3 then it's brand is diminishing rapidly.

I don't think the Playstation brand will ever reach those high's ever again, but the brand is still very strong.

I don't know why, but I have a feeling that the PS3 will dominate the next 2 years.

Well, if the PS4 is affordable, as Sony is aiming for, that graph will look a lot better in 2014, when we will have a ful year of PS4 shipments added to it. Vita should also receive a nice boost after it gets a $50 price cut.

   

Delusional, the new N-word.

If it has never dominated a year so far how will it dominate in the next two.  The word domination is so over used.

It will sell many millions less in the next two years than the last two and will face the WiiU on the rise and the next box and perhaps even the PS4.
