i made this thread earlier today and it was locked by a mod, but i got permission from the mod to repost as long as its not as antagonistic.. so here it goes. im gonna give this my best effort.

some people claimed SECOND COMING OF THE PS2! others (like myself) believed that it was a false prophet. 

although it hasn't yet been a year since the release of the ps4 and xbox one, i think we have come a lot closer to answering this question. a lot of people believed ps4 was going to attain 60%+ market share and reclaim the glory of the ps2 days. with how things have been going in the industry, it seems obvious that its going to be a much closer race than it was in the 6th generation. even a closer race than it was in the 7th generation.

e3 was telling in itself. microsoft did everything right while sony.. well, sony was doing things that microsoft was heavily chastised for the e3 before. all the while, the majority went ahead and gave nintendo the win. 

in the beginning, sony had everything going for them, and you know what? they have been coasting since. if sony weren't coasting all year, maybe ps4 would be outselling xbone and wii u combined, or at least close to it. 

in the end, i believe we are looking at 40%-30%-30% roughly. hardly the second coming of the ps2.

was that better, everyone?

As I said last time. They aren't closing the gap. PS4 is still outselling both the Xbox One and Wii U every week. Gap between them is still getting wider every week.

well, if you noticed, i actually changed the title because it seemed to have caused a bit of confusion amongst many users last time. this is about ps4 DOMINATION. which means 50%+ marketshare at least. in that sense, yes, the gap is closing.

I'm pessimistic but you never know what will happen come holiday season




Wiiu will end up with 14/18 m LT sales, X1 maybe 30/35m given how reliant it is on a select few markets.
So rest is PS4 sales, so depends what any one sees sales being over all maybe 200m maybe more or less whatever. I'm saying PS4 will do 100m easily nuf, even with 100m that's high 60s %.

We will see PS4 take high 60ish 70ish % market share.

And yes PS4 is PS2

You needed to combine a Wii U hot on the heels of a big exclusive and a "price dropped" XB1 to outsell the ps4 by just 20k (assuming vgchartz is accurate). That should tell you that it is indeed dominating. Doesn't even need to do anything to sell almost as much as the other two combined. What do you think happens when they release games? Or future price drops happen?

Like i said in the other thread, PS4 will hit 50% in Spring 2015.
