I don't think you understand the concept of a tie. If basketball team #1 scores 100 points while basketball team #2 scores 99 points, that's not a tie. That means team #1 wins.

Do you have a source for your claim? Everywhere I've found it says units sold.

Every unti manufactured has been sold. That's kinda the point. The only GBAs left are in someone's home, broken, or second hand in a store.

PSPs are still being manufactured and sold.

I'm pretty sure Sony discontinued the PSP last year.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

worst selling hardware of last gen... and its natural son may well be the worst selling harware of this gen too.

your threads are very, very selective.


Isnt his point, everything this gen will sell worse than the worst selling hardware of last gen except PS4. 



I could only agree with this gen home consoles and next gen handhelds.

What if Xbox 10 comes out in 2017, has is 5x the power of PS4 and we don't get another Playstation til 2019?

Beyond next gen we don't know what evolution the industry might undergo.

As for people asking why the PSP, it seems quite obvious. It was looked down during its generation, which makes the perspective of the prediction feel even more bold.

Did the PSP-Go play a different library of games?


No, it just didnt have an UMD drive.


I mean, PSP Go played only PS Store games, while the other PSP models played UMD games as well. Not all UMD games were released on the PS Store.



Yep.

True, but I still think they should be considered one handheld though...

They discontinued it in North America. Not in Europe and Asia, where all of its sales now come from.

Not a difficult prediction to make. No one's actually expecting the Xbone to reach Xbox 360 sales, 360 is the best supported MS platform ever and it barely made it past the PSP. Xbox is losing the market share it captured from PS last gen. Nintendos hardware business is dwindling, the 3DS has peaked, mobiles changed the handheld industry forever, the next Nintendo handheld will likely have trouble reaching even the 3DS sales. Same story with their home consoles. Nintendo consoles sold less each gen since the NES if the Wii is left out.

NES: ~61M
SNES: ~49M
N64: ~34M
GCN: ~22M
WiiU: ~16M?

I find it hysterical the way you and other Sony-posters have to pretend like the Wii didn't exist to make yourselves feel better when talking about Nintendo.  (Not that it matters to Nintendo. I'd rather profit off 22million Gamecubes than lose my shirt/break-even selling 80 million PS3's too.)  Anyway, my point is, it would be like if in every post I were to pretend the PS2 didn't exist and look at the video game industry this way:

1 Nintendo DS (DS) 57.37 52.07 33.01 12.43 154.88
2 Game Boy (GB) 43.18 40.05 32.47 2.99 118.69
3 PlayStation (PS) 38.94 36.91 19.36 9.04 102.49           ;)
4 Wii (Wii) 45.37 33.75 12.77 9.28 101.17

You're right.  Ignoring the existence of one entire product really does put a different spin on the industry.



Please dear Dr, write "prediction" in the title...
Because this IS NOT fact.

My favorite handheld.(I think im the minority)

3DS & NDS are pretty good too though.
