With the release of Bloodborne, MGSV, Type-0 and Dragon Quest Heroes, I think it actually has a chance of catching up to PS3. Fingers crossed. If FFXV releases this year then all the better.

PS3 sold 1,180,000 units in the next full year at this point in time. PS4 would need to sell 1.4m to catch up.

Actually, I find this interesting so I'm going to open a new thread about this.


PS3 sold 1.2 million in 2007 and 1 million in 2008 in Japan. I think PS4 will fly past when it gets some proper games. Alligned launch sales is a little hard to compare though since PS4 launched in March. But i expect PS4 to easily do more than 1.2 million in 2015.

PS4 selling as much as PS3 without as big systèm seller ? But people told me it would never reach PS3 sales



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

 

Hopefully the lineup this year van push up the baseline

Still hoping for over 7 million lifetime



Massive congrats

Well, it remains to be seen if the PS4 has PS3's longevity or not. Regardless, I think the PS4 will do better than its predecessor early-mid gen as long as it constantly gets games that Japanese gamers prefer.

OT: Also, just realized that Japan has become the PS4's 3rd non-US/UK country that joined the 1 million club (the others being Germany and France).

It will have ... 3rd Parties will take care of it.



This is actually pretty dire. The PS3 was a disappointment in Japan and it was more expensive and had a worse launch lineup than the PS4.

This also tracks several months behind both the Sega Saturn and the Dreamcast in Japan.



Nicely done! Next year will be at 2,5 million i expect.



What about digital PS4 sales?



Great. I think PS4 can pass PS3 sales (hopefully) this year with all the big games coming.
