If someone asks why I'm using an alt account, CGI and Truckusaurus got me a temp approval until I get my iconic and notorious "kurasakiichimaru" account back. :p

that is phenomenal, dilly dilly!



 

Amazing design, more amazing milestone. Now we can find out how much exactly PS3 sold. Except for PSV, a PS console averages more than 100m consoles sold. And we keep hearing people underestimating PS4 sales because the rivals fucked up, or hearing that PS5 will have difficulties to repeat the success of PS4. To put some perspective, since 1996 a Playstation has been the most selling home console each year except in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 (Wii years).



That's one sexy PS4.

So we can now get a good idea about how much ps3 sales right?



What a huge number, since more than 20 years Playstation has always been the number 1 platform for gaming!

Btw is it possible to guess PS Vita numbers with this announcement?

And I have to edit the OP because someone deleted the special edition PS4 pro thread.

Yeah, with PSP and Vita in the average it's still 87 million a piece. That's incredible.

If you ignore the DS, the 3DS and Wii lol.

Massive congrats. Playstation has done so well since Sony launched it. Insane sales.



500 Million PS4 pro. I think that's a bit much for a limited edition.
