PS3:

FY06 - 3.5 million
FY07 - 9.1 million
FY08 - 10.1 million
FY09 - 13.0 million
FY10 - 14.3 million
FY11 - 13.9 million
FY12 - 16.5 million (includes PS2)
FY13 - 7.1 million
FY14 - 3.1 million

Total= 90.6m - PS2 FY12.

 

PS3 Should be over 88m easily, it's heavily undertracked here.

That looks really good, PS3 might end up with higher Lifetime sales than what i expected.


Those numbers aren't exactly perfect, I forget why but something happened in the beginning in the way they tracked. I could go about figuring it out. I rather not, and most likely won't. Just pretend it is between 87-90 million regardless.

And how with they do that? They would have to be up to reach the current forcast, but to up it would only mean you do believe they will have a price cut.

Well for FY2014 they forecast 17m PS4 + PS4 in Mar 2014, increased it to 17.5m in Feb 2015 and ended with 17.9m in Mar 2015... that is why I believe they will revise these forecasts.

And yes PS4 will be up this year... it is already up in SOLD numbers until March 1... the shipment now shows only they decreased the units on shelves from ~1.4m to ~1.0m and not that they sold less (they in fact sold more PS4 this year than last year until March 1).

If they are using a bit of invenctory shipped in 2014 (400k) this quarter then you can expect a better shipment next quarter... we will need to wai.

Q1 FY14: 2.7m PS4 shipped.

If Sony continue to sell ~900k per month like they did in Jan/Feb/Mar then they will need to ship at least 2.7m again to hold a ~1m invenctory on retail.


Only reason I don't know if I agree, is I think Feb is one of the strongest months for not holiday season. I don't know if North America will be able to keep with the same amount of sales for the next six months. Given we do have to wait one quarter to truly find out the trends. Given a price cut could eventually happen and they basically accomplish the goal of being above 16 million. (If a certain key software wasn't delayed I would be more hopeful)



 

PS3 > Wii lifetime?

Is it? I didn't checked (I just checked Feb is indeed strong than Apr/May but weaker than Jun).

Even so there will be that too.

what are u talking about?
sony ps4 sold through numbers are down 50k units in the us (tracked by npd)
sony ps4 sold through numbers are down 100k+ units in japan (tracked by media create and famitsu)
sony ps4 sell in numbers are down 600k units 

nothing! indicates, that sony is up in sold trough the first quarter of 2015 globally

That is why you don't use Globally in US or Globally in Japan data to make WW maths.

2014: 1.8m in 64 days
2015: 1.7m in 56 days

Unless you believe PS4 didn't sell 100k in 8 days then PS4 is UP yoy using the lastest sold thought data.

We can wait the next sold tought data.

PS. The sell in numbers are cleary saying they used invenctory shipped in Q3 FY14... that is why they did shipped less than last year... they sold 1.7 million in Jan + Feb... so they really sold more than 2.4m shipped this quarter (my personal estimates put sold thought for Q4 FY14 at ~2.8m).



Is PS Vita overtracked on this site?

Last time I checked it was undertracked but it was months ago... maybe adjustments happened.
