X1 is twice as much as I expected.

Contrary to some people's believes Germany is neither a WiiU loving or Xbox hating country. It's a PC+PS country and since X1 is just a worse PC all console sales go to PS by default.

now it's correct.

PS4 sold 1.4 million in 2015.

Yikes, that is quite the challenge for the PS4 then. 

Not really.  If Germany or Europe is anything like NA, then in the last two months of the year sales are about 3-4x Sales of the entire year combined. I may even be extremely low balling that number. 

Like right now we can say the PS4 averages around 200k/month in NA (more like 175k but whatever). In the month of November alone, Sony can sell anything between 800k-1200k PS4s in just that one month.

800k would be horrible for PS4 this holidays, and 1.2 million not bad but still meh in my opinion.

I think PS4 should be 1.7 million in November and December NPD.

P.S

In Germany holidays are not as big as in USA, in 2015 holidays sales for PS4 were just 41% of total YOY sales. I think PS4 will be flat at best this year, at least in Germany.

Yeah I edited my original comment after seeing the PS4 holiday sales in Germany were 570,000 in 2015. It should be no problem especially with new hardware, and compelling new software.



That´s alot of PlayStation jesus christ! Must be a Record for Sony in such little time and PlayStation Consoles always have insane legs so i don´t want to see the numbers in 5 years lol

Seems like to dont understand much how markets work, console will drop price, Neo is coming out, VR will be hyped and Gran Turismo is coming, along with all the 3rd party games, Ps4 will be up by alot WW this holodays, Germany included.

Wii U standing tall! Love to see it.

Sadly Nintendo abandoned or killed it  ( to be more precise)  early, 2016 should be its last normal year not 2015, it deserved one more year of push and effort by Nintendo. 

Selling 3.2m in 2015 and forecasting  just 800k in the  next year, implies that you are killing your product....

Nintendo announced NX release date prematurely , they should have waited , many people won'te buying a wii u  in 2016 fearing of wasting money if NX after all has  BC... Wii u big  yoy sales drop,  is mostly because of NX anticipation! And game-wise, 2016 is a super-dry year!

Anyway...

I hope that it will reach 1m in Germany... I don't know, maybe there is still time to  manage it ( 250k in the rest of its life isn't a huge number, so it must be a feasible aim ) , the issue is if there are enough inventory to reach it, if you know what I mean! ;)



Dat Sony domination.

3:1 on the x1 and Wii U.

4.5:1 on the x1 this year.

Holy mothers of Kaz.



Yep! Consoles are sure is declining.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Oh Mein Gott!
