From the looks of it, 2017 could be the PS4's peak year by a comfortable margin.
Let's see what the holiday season holds.
I expect some heavy bundling (Call of Duty, Gran Turismo, Star Wars) and perhaps even a price cut, (for all models), in response to what could be stiff competition in the forms of the Xbox One X and Nintendo Switch.

Things continue to look very good this year, even with the Switch launch, and the looming XOX. I do think Sony will play very hard this holiday to try and set their place on top in stone as much as possible. No doubt 2017 will be the best year so far for PS4, but I would't count out 2018 yet. Tons of games, and very good chance of even more hardware versions/revisions, and price cuts. 

I also think this holiday and next year will see PlayStation Vue really make a dent in the US. It is by far the best TV service on the market, and they are adding locals at a blistering rate now. If Americans really hate the prices of their current TV set up, then the idea of a $200 PS4 and a $40 a month service, that offers massively increased value over Direct TV, Comcast, and Time Warner should be an easy choice. I get all the locals in my area now, and I pay $140 a month for PS Vue and Broadband, compaired to $240 a month for the old Comcast set up which offered much, much less content, and extreamly limited DVR.

The addition of games like Gran Turismo Sport, Doom, Skyrim, Ace Combat, many other titles, and hopefully a price drop, should start to make PSVR a very huge console mover as well. If they drop a PS4 Premium to bridge the gap to PS5 in 2020, and incorperate all the necessary VR compnents into the box, they should stay very attractive against whatever MS does with XOX, and Rift/Vive.

Sony has everything in place to make the PS4 even more successful than the PS2, they just need to not mees up.

That was your monthly cable/internet bill? Holy shit. Can you give me a rough idea what that gave you in terms of channels, connection speed, and data cap?

On topic. I wish we had this service in Canada, but thanks to our terrible regulatory body, the CRTC, who's only job is to fuck everything up, it's possible we won't have it for years, if ever.

I took the liberty of filling in the data for the last few weeks according to the weekly. I don't know if the numbers are off. 2m seems like a lot lol.

anyway, one of the weeks was also adjusted up by 500, so I put a (a) sign next to the number

The last two are software numbers. Hardware numbers for those weeks haven't gone up yet. I very nearly made the same mistake haha.

haha damn, I mustve been really tired. I was like hey maybe that's when pro launched.



Yeah a price cut and heavy bundling to see out the year with the biggest games from both EA and Activision this Autumn/holiday (Destiny 2, Battlefront 2, CoD WW2 etc) and of course their own bundle with GT Sport should see 2017 be the PS$'s best year by some margin, when was the PS2 peak year? 2004/fourth year on the market?

Good position to be for Sony going ahead.



Playstation gaming for 18 years this 2012


To think some thought the PS4 would be down YoY this year......

Right now its on pace to do 19-20M sold through this year.

July 1st (Crash Week) and July 8th weekly numbers have been added.


... So in 2 weeks, we went from close to 350k to just barely above 200k, despite a highly anticipated release in Crash? Yeah, not too sure about that one.

I think it is an effect of sales being bloated due to the Gold and Silver editions, and the discount in the previous weeks.

Still really nice YOY growth.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
