Really horrible for Nintendo. Sony should ramp up this year with more PS4 inventory, but Vita is a giant black hole for them.


Ramp up?  They're only predictinf 20m themselves.  They wont hit that.  Handhelds wont sell the 3.5m they predict. 

Sony will remain fairly flat, Ninty will fall (a lot) and Xbox will fall (after finishing the current year just about 11.5m).



I'm not really here!

This year will again be bad, there is really little to drive next gen adoption rate this year (MS and Sony should kiss Ubi for that Ass Creed) and Wii U is gonna Wii U I assume, handhelds are dropping like a rock, with Vita dead in the West.

2015 should see a good bump unless every delayed releases before April 2015, then FY 2014 might not be that horrible

Thanks for the data.

So it is happening...PS4 preorder.

Greatness Awaits!

Looks alright.


Really?

Looks bad to me, and it will get worse.


Looks decent to me, and I think next year will be way better to all of them.



That Nintendo is also why people who think Nintendo can go years without a new hardware refresh are nuts. They are going to fall to 1995 levels soon. 



DOOOOOOOOOOOM FOR EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think consoles are as doomed as Watch Dogs was before launch, right Kowen??

Seeing as these charts include handhelds, is anyone even remotely surprised by these numbers? Were it not for the sudden huge rise and then "fall" of handheld gaming the charts would look a lot more consistent.

No, I don't think so. The console market may be shrinking but it's certainly not doomed. Sales for software are a good indicator that the industry is still a long way from being doomed despite what some people might say.
