Is it still tracking ahead of PS2?

Was 55m sell-through. Most people called it a tame or realistic prediction.

Thread also got bumped in December after Sony's announcement of 50m. For some reason many people thought that put the prediction on track. Why didn't it come true? Probably because Black Friday has come to Europe, thus shifting sales from December to November.

Considering the PS4 will probably end 2016 with nearly 54 million sold, that's a pretty good prediction considering it was made a full year ahead of time.

53.4m is the year-end tally. And I am not going to give myself a pat on the back for being off by 1.6m when it seemed like 55m should be easily doable. I didn't make the prediction thread, but I agreed with it.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Spot on with my prediction for Uncharted 4! Lifetime can be anywhere from 12 - 15 Million IMO.

There's no way they could end the series here. There's just no way!

I just really can't be impressed by sell-through of a game when it's bundled with the system. I mean, literally half of Uncharted 4 sales could be simply because it came with the console the person bought. Even if the game was never turned on. Is that impressive, in that case? I'd be more impressed if they gave us real sales figures of the game, not including bundles.

Then sadly  almost  all exclusive  games are not impressive.

 

Sony,Microsoft, Nintendo  all bundle there  games.

Oooohhh okay. I was mixing up the Uncharted numbers being through the 21st with the console sales numbers. My bad.



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

If we strictly take the first 13 fiscal quarters for both consoles, yes. The PS2 had shipped 51.2m by March 2003. The PS4 has shipped at least 55m by December 2016.

The catch is that the PS2's first three quarters were Japan-only while for the PS4 only one quarter for Japan is missing in this 13-quarter-period. Taking 12 quarters for Japan and 13 quarters for America and Europe for the PS2 to match the PS4's launch logic, we get this:

Japan - 12.47m
America - 29.09m
Europe - 24.27m

Total - 65.83m

That puts the PS2 10m units ahead of the PS4. Numbers taken from the Wikipedia page which hosts data extracted from Sony's financial reports.

Up 8% YoY. Pretty surprising given the Pro and Slim are such bombas.

Must have been a lot of old stock left

Excuse me but what?

 

OT: Well deserved for UC4!

 

Edit : at what's said above, holy shit that dip in Japan....

Pretty bad increase in hardware sales tbh...

Considering you had $250 ps4 slims, a pro version of the console, the VR launch, FF XV finally launching, and UNCHARTED 4 launching that year as well.... For there only to be a 100k increase says something....

Would not be surprised if the tablet market is eating into the console market as well..... Parents would rather buy kids a $99 tablet over a $250 inhome only console :S, just an assumption.

I would agree to some extent. Something is happening here and it's not good. 

Up YoY in its 4th holidays - the PS2 was on the decline at this stage (it peaked in its 3rd year). I have no idea what people were expecting.
