Forums - Gaming Discussion - ps4 9 million units sold?

http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/microsofts-phil-harrison-xbox-one-kinect-ps4s-success-hats-off-sony-1455080

...Asked about bridging the gap between the two console's sales figures (Sony report 9 million units sold, Harrison says Xbox One's figure is "north of five million") he says: "Some analysts will suggest that we are less than 5% into this generation, so there is plenty of market opportunity ahead of us."...

In this interview with Phil Harrison, it states Sony reported 9 mil units sold.. Couldn't find any additional news on this.. Would it surprise you if this was true?  Is VG massively under tracking the ps4 WW?  Also, Harrison says x1 numbers are north of 5 mil, but he isn't confirming sales through or shipped figures..

Anyways, thoughts?  Additional info?



Man.. I hate it when your girl has to leave my place to come back to you..

VGchartz is NOT accurate. WiiU is under tracked and maybe ps4 could be as well. BUT no way ps4 has reached that number.

Sounds like they're comparing sold to retailers, not sold to consumers.



As of June 1st (Japan), US + Japan sales = <4 million units. From reports, Europe and Rest of the world still don't have supply to meet demand. If shipped, then it makes no sense why there would be supply issues. It can't be sold because of these shortages. It is possible Harrison misspoke, as the only public info I could find about "9 million units" was from that same article.



Preditctions For 2014

Halo: The Master Chief Collection -  2.5 Million   

Titanfall [XB1] - 4.2 Million 

Wii U -  8.9 Million

PS4  - 17.7 Million

Xbox One 9.9 Million

Assuming a 10 year life span. PS4 should hopefully sell minimum of 120 million consoles and possibly over 150 million+ console sales with game releases, bundles, price cuts and PS4 slim over the generation.

Well the PS4 is still selling like hot pancakes, even with releases of other games like Titanfall , Mario kart 8, still PS4 has been unstoppable so 9 million I can easily guarantee it.



Manufactured maybe. Not sold. What joke of an analyst thinks we're less than 5% into this gen?..


8th gen predictions. (made early 2014)
PS4: 60-65m
WiiU: 30-35m
X1: 30-35m
3DS: 80-85m
PSV: 15-20m

I think it's sold to retailer and not to consumers, but if it is indeed consumers, then good on ya Sony :)

Current Consoles: Gaming PC, Wii U, 3DS

Well.. To be fair.. Nobody (MS & Sony) have yet to release any new numbers since Sony announced the 7 mil thing back in April.. So numbers could be right.. We really have nothing to rely on except VG and it's estimates.
