I think Sony is trying hard to announce that 20 Millions sell through at the end of the year

Forums - Sony Discussion - I think Sony is trying hard to announce that 20 Millions sell through at the end of the year

Just like the title says it, I think that Sony is trying hard to reach that number.

I understand the deals on the US to try and match the offers from Xbox One, but they have some insanely crazy deals going out through Europe too, specially in UK. PS4 was still selling amazing good in Europe and in the rest of the world if we are to believe vgchartz. But even then, we are still saying insane deals. So giving Sony's position back in October (before we knew of any price cut from MS for Xbox One), it was more than assured for retailers that they need to stock on the PS4 cause they will just fly away. That put Sony in a position were they could actually afford to "stuff the channels" and give them a lot of those PS4. 

Now retailers are posting some good deals out there in both US and Europe. One of sony guys (Can't remember his name) even admitted that sales were a little hurt in the US in november because of the competition.I was even surprise that some retailers even have the PS4 at $350. 

I think  Sony is really trying to push for that number. Which explain the only PR we had at the Playstation Experience was "fastest selling console of all time", which was by the way a very good news for Sony.

I doubt they're pushing for any specific number. They're just pushing for as much as possible. They're already overwhelmed by the success of the PS4, so I don't think there will be any disappointment when they don't reach 20m this year.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

They are just pushing to move at or above levels of stock that they want to. Only internet fanboys care about the milestones. Sony is more than happy with sales.



Getting an XBOX One for me is like being in a bad relationship but staying together because we have kids. XBone we have 20000+ achievement points, 2+ years of XBL Gold and 20000+ MS points. I think its best we stay together if only for the MS points.

Nintendo Treehouse is what happens when a publisher is confident and proud of its games and doesn't need to show CGI lies for five minutes.

Maybe in CES2015 but i doubt



PS4 - over 100 millions let's say 120m
Xbox One - 70m
Wii U - 25m

Vita - 15m if it will not get Final Fantasy Kingdoms Heart and Monster Hunter 20m otherwise
3DS - 80m

What deals do they have in Europe?

Well 20m shipped is all but guaranteed at this point. They probably just want to win December NPD to prove that November's results were that of desperation, not the start of a new trend.

Yeah the 20 million shipped is definitely guaranted. Winning December NPD is probably as much as a better news for them as the 20 million sold through.



lol no they don't really give a shit, as long as they are leading and selling stock at a good enough rate.



Its possible, and i'll be pulling for them.



they're trying to sell as many as possible(like nin/ms) and not a specific number... as for the deals, its that time of year,this is gonna happen every year
