Wii and PS2 were both extremely supply constrained with super high demand. PS4 demand kinda dropped off a cliff in January.

and if you look at amazon, every last gen version of every PS4 game is selling more than PS4 and the top selling game is fucking Mario Kart 8


a few things the ps4 is still supplly constrained.

define dropped off a cliff? have you looked at the wii's sales in 2007? have you looked how many were in Japan? have a look at a comparison of the sales. 

Did you look at NPD ps4 was the best selling version of quite a few of the top ten software

 

Jan 7 2007 Japan

Wii 171,626 (+59%)

WW Jan 6th

Wii 304,147 (+7%) 3,258,928

without Japan thats  132,521

January 4th 2014

PS4 260,911 (-44%) 4,397,385

PS4 almost double though it does have a few more days in December

Japan Jan14 07

Wii 95,723 (-44%) 1,225,548

WW Jan 13

Wii 251,498 (-17%) 3,510,426

without Japan 155,775

January 11th 2014

PS4 181,422 (-30%) 4,578,807

Ps4 still up though only about 25,000

 

Japan Jan 21st 07

Wii 83,788 (-12%) 1,309,336

WW Jan 20th

Wii 245,435 (-2%) 3,755,861

without Japan  161,647

Jan 18th 2014

PS4 154,904 (-15%) 4,733,711

PS4 down by less than 7,000

 

Japan Jan 28th 07

Wii 82,898 (-1%) 1,392,234

WW Jan 27th

Wii 251,288 (+2%) 4,007,149

without Japan  168,330

Jan 25th 2014

PS4 147,615 (-5%) 4,881,326

PS4 Down by a little over 20,000

Japan Feb 4th 07

Wii 70,738 (-15%) 1,462,972

WW Feb 3rd

Wii 231,018 (-8%) 4,238,167

without Japan 160,280

 Feb 1st 2014

PS4 165,543 (+12%) 5,046,869

PS4 Up again by about 5,000

 

Japan Feb 11th 07

Wii 74,059 (+5%) 1,537,031

WW Feb 10th

Wii 220,974 (-4%) 4,459,141

without Japan 146,915  WW to date without Japan  2,922,110  WW YTD without Japan about 925,000

Feb 8th 2014

Ps4  140,308

down by about 7,000  WW to date without Japan about 5,1800,000  WW YTD without Japan about 1,050,000

So without Japan the ps4 is about 125,000 above what the wii did. Even if you take out most of the sales for the first weeks numbers, You can hardly call that dropping off a cliff. Not only that even without the million and a half sales the wii had in Japan by this point, the ps4 is still up by over 600,000

Great post. Some people prefer to deny reality.

Because of what sony did with the ps3.. They deserve trust and sales.. To go from barely having better first party than microsoft , to surpassing Nintendo.. With innovative IP after IP.. They proved themselves last gen


Surpassing Nintendo? Are you drunk? 

Uncharted/littlebigplanet/infamous/killzone/ratchet/jak/godofwar/granturismo/journey/pixeljunkip/heavy rain/ beyond two souls/ the last of us/ puppettier/ all say hi... And all show the variety that Nintendo cannot even touch

Bullshit. I already debunked that lol . Shit Nintendo makes more RPG's than Sony does  Try again

Let me put it to you like this, NIntendo makes strategy games,platformers,rpgs(They own 11 franchises in this genre),puzzle games(SO MANY PUZZLE GAMES), action adventure games,kart and arcade racers,Metroid,Shmups,fighters,wide assortment of sports titles and Luigi's Mansion since they seemed to stop making other horror games. Not to mention the wierd shit they come up with like Odama and Custom Robo.

Sony stopped making good ratchet and jak games unfortunately.

Big thing NIntendo's missing? hack and Slash/musou, and other sims. So they payed for Bayonetta 2 and gave Tecmo Zelda for Musou.

 

Heavy Rain and Beyond are the ame thing, Journey's that game company.... I'd say sony needs to stop making so many damn 3rd person shooters, they've got 5 of those/



Im glad Japan is finally getting theirs, they will have a ton of fun. Sony has prob been holding some back for the Japan launch, plus its spread out allover the place to begin with.

it's like the fb of the gaming world. At least that's how the interface is setup.

What's funny is, prelaunch we had lots of reports of failing consoles with less than 50k in peoples hands, certain people jumped on it as the new rrod, here we are 5 million plus sold, where's the proportional failure rate to that initial 50k? Surely we should be flooded with angry customers by now...


Haha. Good point. Haven't thought about that in a while. Remember they were all from verified customers, so they were obviously true :p

Vgchartz user "attaboy" admitted that he broke all of those consoles.  After he got banned, the reports stopped.
