Sony Quarterly Results (July-Sep) 2018, PS4: 3.9M (LTD: 86.1M). Year Ending Sales Revised Upward to 17.5M

Forums - Sales Discussion - Sony Quarterly Results (July-Sep) 2018, PS4: 3.9M (LTD: 86.1M). Year Ending Sales Revised Upward to 17.5M

Assuming that on average Sony receives at least $50 per playstation plus subscription, they are netting close to 2 billion dollars from that alone. Truly insane!!

The Marvel' Spider-Man pack is gonna do some big numbers.

Yes. On AmazonUSA, they were sold out quickly today.

Was there any other PS4 bundle's for Black Friday ? (in europe yes, but in america ??)

Australia had several bundles as well:

Ps4 slim 500 gb with Spiderman for Aus$299 (something like Us$216)

Amazon Australia had the same deal for Aus$269 (something like Us$196, we don't pay taxes and can stack with promotions like ebates for extra saving of around 8%).

Controllers were at Aus$39-45 (nearly us$28-33)

Ps4 pro with spider man for Aus$459 (Us$332)

All deals from amazon sold out within hours.



and none of that money went to a new studio investment good luck waiting for big games again for 3-5 years on ps5 lifecycle

Well, actually, if you line up the major releases this gen with next gen, the sequels will fall right in line with the first year or two of PS5.  GG, SSM, Insomniac, and Polyphony should all have releases within that period.

Lack of Game output and Playstation should never go in the same sentence.

And if there is one company that doesn't need to be investing in new studios its sony. Kinda weird you don't know that but know how to spell "new studio".

Ya I'm not sure what his definition of "big games" are but I dont think Sony has had any problem with their output of "big" 1st/2nd party titles on PS4.

 

Killzone: Shadowfall

InFamous: Second Son

Bloodborne

The Order: 1886

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End

Horizon: Zero Dawn

God of War

Detroit: Become Human

Spider-Man

Days Gone

Ghost of Tsushima

Death Stranding

The Last of Us II

 

That's not including the dozens of small-medium titles like LittleBigPlanet, Knack, Ratchet & Clank, Gravity Rush, Vita/VR/PSN titles, etc.

It would be nice to have more AAA games in the first 2 years yes but Sony wants them to sell well and PS4 isnt like the Switch nor will every 1st party game sell like Zelda, Smash, and Mario Odyssey. They will definitely have some cross gen titles. Days Gone, Dreams, Final Fantasy 7R, TLOU2 will all probably be cross gen. Hope to see Bloodborne 2 as well. And maybe a HZD, GoW2 sequel. So many options. But the one big I dont like from them is the censorship. Thats why Sony stoodout more because they didnt take crap. And now these new policies are wack.



3DS: 5429-9952-3189  Add me if you wish!

Whats even cooler is that 8 of those 13 games you listed are new IPs. And thats something I don't think sony gets enough credit for.

In comparison, only new IP MS has made this gen is QB, Sunset OD, and that thing with a girl and a robot dog. And the only New IP nintendo has made in almost 8yrs is Splatoon. 

I'm talking AAA games here.
