IIRC there were some people here who still thought PS4 wouldn't hit 100 million lifetime as recently as May. Sales would have to drop like a rock for that to happen at this point.

Some people on here said PS4 would NEVER reach 100 million! And that was just like 6mo ago. 

March next year, it ll be over 80m shipped probably, and you ll still find people going "nope, its never going over 100m".

This is great. First Nintendo, now Sony. When will we hear from Microsoft?

I think all we heard from MS about gaming is that revenue is up 5% YOY or something like that.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Yeah but hardware revenue is down 48% YOY.

And gameing revenue includes odd things like pc,mobile,surfacepro, multiplats like minecraft ect.

From September 2015:

How some people thought it would only sell 80M is beyond me.

That thread  needs to be bumped and crow served.

It could be but I think the PS4 will drop to $200 next year and with GoW, Spiderman, RDR2 and TLoU2, I think 2018 might just be the peak year. We’ll see. I think Detroit and Ghost of Tsushima will be big too.

 

We will see, it's definitely this or next one.

If it hits 80m by fiscal year 2017 which is march next year then it should hit 100m by fiscal year 2018 which is march 2019. It will have many megatons release in that time and price cuts to ps4 slim, pro and psvr.  I just can't see it needing to wait until holiday 2019. Ps4 is a beast and it ain't slowing down.

Yesterday we got news of Nintendo kicking ass and now we find out Playstation is kicking ass as well, good news!!!

It's nice seeing it happen relatively independently too. We normally only see this kind of two-lane market with home consoles vs handheld, which makes me think the PS4 has maintained its grip on the home console market, and the Switch is predominantly pulling in and slightly re-shaping the handheld market. Works out pretty nicely for both Sony and Nintendo.

Yeah they must be both delighted to be posting numbers so big and not eating each others pie. A duopoly in the console market between ninty and Sony is best imo.

So can we count the Xbox as a non-factor at this point that probably really doesn't matter?

It still matters... its just not having a great year.

Maybe Xbox One X really can turn things around for them? you can hope for that, I Just dont think it will.



I think they will hit around 95M by the end of FY2019 and 105M by the end of FY2020.

Lets say by march 2018 (FY2017 end) they are at 80m (they pass their 79m goal).

Then the go onto have another 18m or so year,.... by March 2019 (FY2018's end) they should be around ~98m.

So by Q2 2019, PS4 could/should be over 100m.

Holidays 2019 + 2020.....


Im pretty sure PS4 hits 120m+ lifetime numbers.

Well there were a guy quoted for saying it won't cross 75M sales when it was over 60M... talk about crazy.

Holy smokes, 48% drop is expressive... and MS is master on mixing things to ofuscate what they don't wan't exposed.

Do you think we are going from 3 straight years almost on 20M to 16M and 10M before PS5 release?
