EA estimates 55 million PS4 + XB1 install base

Forums - Sales Discussion - EA estimates 55 million PS4 + XB1 install base

During their post earnings conference call EA said that the PS4 and XB1 install base (sell through) had reached approximately 55 million as of December 31st 2015. 

Please note that this is an estimate from EA and therefore is based on their internal research + IDG numbers or whatever market research companies they subscribe to. 

We know that Sony have sold 35.9 million as of January 2nd so we can estimate that the Xbox One is somewhere around ~19 million. Give or take.

Solid numbers for both consoles.



Well well, good tracking. Maybe XB1 a bit over tracked but all in all good job!



PS4 and PC gaming

 

PC Specs:
AMD Ryzen 9 3900x
Zotac Nvidia RTX 2070 Super
32GB DDR4 Corsair Vengence Ram 3200 mhz
1TB Samsung Qvo SSD
Corsair Spec-Delta Case
Asus ROG B450-F Motherboard

I'll keep it around 50 mil. Seems more accurate.

Either way, great turnaround for Xbone and PS4 from last gen. Hopefully Nintendo learns from them

Both are already hits and still have many years to go!

At that time I will update the OP to reflect the exact phrasing used by the CFO. But what I said in the OP is what he said.



Lol. All you have to do is be a VGC Member to know that



Sooo VGC is pretty much on track.

Or maybe EA is basing their estimate on VGC.

EA don't base their forecasts off VGChartz data. They create their estimates internally and using other market research data from companies such as IDG.

VGC's numbers for France and Germany are off. While it got the cumulative numbers right, it got the distribution of the cumulative sales wrong.
