Cool. I was looking for a reason to drink today. It's too bad we can't compare all time physical/digital sales, to get a more accurate look at how the current systems software sales are doing compared to their predecessors.



Chinese food for breakfast

 

January 2017. :

“Sales of PS4 exceeded 53.4 million units worldwide, and the sales total of PS4’s game software reached more than 400 million (401.1 million),” - Oda

http://www.thewolfhall.com/sie-japan-gm-ps4-pro-psvr-supply-issues/

 

June 2017:

"PS4 has cumulatively sold through more than 60.4 million units to consumers worldwide as of June 11, 2017"

"PS4 software sales, led by critically acclaimed titles such as Horizon: Zero Dawn, also remain strong with more than 487.8 million copies*2 sold at retail stores globally and through digital downloads on PlayStation™Store as of June 11"  - Sony Interactive Entertainment.

http://www.pushsquare.com/news/2017/01/ps4_software_sales_exceed_400_million_console_sales_reach_53_4_million

"Interestingly, both the PlayStation 2 and the Wii – the two best-selling consoles of all time – sold less games when they hit 50 million hardware sales: 308 million and 353 million game sales respectively."  - pushsquare.com



Wow around 2.4 billion revenue in physical software.

(I know some of these games aren't bought at full price but the expensive games in europe and the UK and elsewhere around the world like Australia make up for that)



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

How is PS4 Already catching up to Wii in Game sales it's not even close to 100m sold.

It's catching up because Wii doesn't sell software any more?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

???

Wii 100m sold 500m software sold

PS4 60m sold 400m software sold

What does that have to do with Wii selling software anymore?

Edit: Ohhhh I didn't realise Barkleys comment was launch alligned.

Thanks! Very good post



It's weird to me that the Xbox One has almost exactly half the physical game sales as the PS4. It seems like literally almost every major release that's not a dudebro shooter has the PS4 leading like 4:1

~$24 billion in revenue. 2.4 billion would be if each  game cost $6 on average.
