Forums - Sales Discussion - The Real question: Will PS4 outsell the 3DS on a regular basis or in the long run?

                  VS   

 

The PS2 already had problems handling the little DS. Plus, everyone is so interested if the PS4 will take out the 720 and Wii U. I think it is obvious that the PS4 is going to destroy both of these two systems.

But there is a wrench in the gears. The now Mighty 3DS. Once again it is going to come down to the two giants. Little itty bitty 3DS vs the mighty PS4.

Sure the 3DS will have a huge lead when the PS4 releases, but so did the PS2 when the DS came out. Yet, by the end of the generation, the DS would close that gap and threaten the PS2's unbreakable record.

What will happen this time around? Will Sony's wonder system be able to handle what the 3DS is going to bring on us in sales?

....No? Absolutely not?

Did you notice how the original DS has sold over double of the PS3? And that the 3DS is outselling the DS in terms of time frame, and that the DS is the most sold console ever?

I personally think the PS4 will be a disaster in at least one territory and possibly two (depending on the launch of the nextbox), so no: I don't think the PS4 will regularly do higher numbers than the 3DS.

So do you imply that the 3DS will outsell the DS? 

 

OT. Tricky question, too early to say if I would have to guess right now, given the sales will divide with the next xbox I would say no.



So it is happening...PS4 preorder.

Greatness Awaits!

I can potentially see PS4 outselling 3DS, but not until 3DS starts to wind down.

Long run though, 3DS might not. I have a weird feeling this handheld gen won't be as long as the 2004-2011 one.

I did realize that. But don't you see that the PS4 has everything going for it right now? Also, the PS3 was a slow beginner, but has obviously shown that it is the dominant console this gen. The verdict is still out on whether or not it will be able to beat the Wii.

The 3DS is still struggling to get and keep its footing in America and Europe. It is doubtful that it will be able to get anywhere near the DS in lifetime sales. But we will see.

I have not really seen any signs of this at all. Everyone knows about the PS4, many are hyped and not many ...are not.

 

They are already messing with the 720 launch by supposedly "making it hard for blu-Ray" production. The Wii U is going to have a hard life, let's face it. Every milestone that it is going to achieve will be hard earned.

The PS4 will have weakened competitors this gen, and could run away with it again. They are run by people who know how to be successful over and over and over again. Even the Vita is turning around and is in second place in Japan on a regular basis now. According to Famitsu and media create and even vgchart numbers.

No. 3DS is a beast

Do you make any serious threads?

In Japan. Where the PS brand is also a beast, and the PS brand is a beast in the West as well. The only thing keeping them from being huge is the 3DS and the 360.
