Yes, there I said it. Is anyone willing to make that bet with me - or against me?
Hear me out, while I make my argument.
Every week under the red line, is a 179.999 or less week.
- There were 26 weeks in 2014, when PS4 sold less than 180.000.
- PS4 sold an average of 149.982 units in those 26 weeks (30.018)
*Another thing worth remembering is, that PS4 was heavily supply constrained the first 6 months of 2014.
So what will Sony do to make PS4 sell more next year? Nothing? Of course not, but maybe they actually don't need to do anything.
Sure, it is never good thing comparing a generation to the one before it, but still. Generation after generating, after a new Playstation is launched, the following years always beats the one before it in terms of sells. Just look at this picture; PS3 almost sold 30% more in 2008, than in 2007. And again, in 2009 it almost sold 30% more, than in 2008. I believe this exact same thing will happen in 2015.
And now, to the most important thing of all - the games.
* Only on Playstation 4 means not on Xbox One
As you clearly can see, PS4 won't be dealing with any "drought" period in the first half of 2015. Same goes for our friends in Japan.
And not to forget, Playstation 4 will also launch in China on January 11th 2015.
It is not yet clear how well it will perform, but we do know that it will launching at a cheaper price point, than Xbox One.
So, this is my argument, is anyone willing to make that bet with me? :D
