Another monopolized generation without competition, that´s very possitive for the game industry. Or maybe not.

The message that the industry is getting now is very sad, we don´t need new good games, we don´t need to be honest, we don´t need to be different, we don´t need good exlusives, we only need hype, marketing and numbers to sell whatever we want.

Btw, congratulation for that numbers, is really a big achievement.


The PS2 era was great for games. So if its anything like that then count me in

Meanwhile on VGchartz.... looks at PS4 sales @19,4m.

Yep undertracked by 800k+ (surpassed means over 20.2).


VGC numbers are up until 14th of december though, so its behind by like 2 weeks. based on the tracking they were gonna be between 350k-400k. so VGC is undertracking by around 400k-450k. 


Yep! I believe PS4 has sold a cumulative 380k for the other 2 weeks of Feb, so VGC is undertracking by roughly 450k.

Under-tracked as usual. I bet a large portion is from under-tracking in the US. Every time I go to a gamestop I see at least one PS4 getting bought. Still never seen an X1 sell with my own eyes...



Prediction for console Lifetime sales:

Wii:100-120 million, PS3:80-110 million, 360:70-100 million

[Prediction Made 11/5/2009]

3DS: 65m, PSV: 22m, Wii U: 18-22m, PS4: 80-120m, X1: 35-55m

I gauruntee the PS5 comes out after only 5-6 years after the launch of the PS4.

i doubt its in the us since we have npd and vgc adjust the numbers after the npd released (more or less)

i think most of those 400-500k are from eu and row ... come on ps sales are higher in the us than sony land aka eu ?

Does anyone else think VR is the next big thing? like the wii with its motion tracking?
I can see FPS shooters being popular with VR, and exploration games, MMORPG's.

How far along is microsofts VR tech? Because sony's project Morpheus looks to be around early 2016 release.
I can see sony becomeing the standart go to VR gameing consol, which could probably boost sales a good bit.

That ll def. be the "something" new, this gen might have been lacking. The true next gen, VR?

I think it's going to depend on how well the VR is done. If it's well done, it definitely could be the next big thing. I've wanted it for a while, personally. It'll be one of those things that i probably will wait a month or 2 to buy, just to see what bugs it has and such.

VR is def. the next big thing! that's why facebook bought oculus. they believe it is the future of the internet and how we interact online.

I just don't know if we are already there, so it might be, that when sony releases its version it might just be a demo or beta test of what they really want it to be.

It could make them the go to company in terms of VR or actually turn people away from their devices because the experience is not good enough, especially if MS , valve and oculus release a better version only a year after sony does.
