Yep it could be triple the 2005 numbers

The thing is PS2 had a big price cut, PS4 did not until black friday.  Let see what happens after a big price cut.

It's interesting to look at how things have changed over the last decade or so.

Back during the PS2 era, big holiday discounts weren't much a thing but permanent price cuts were far more regular.

This has reversed and PS4 has gotten less permanent price cuts while getting larger and more frequent holiday discounts.

RDR2 bundle for $199 tomorrow may have an impact....

I don´t think PS4 will pass PS2, but it will be the second best selling home console in history, and that is not a small feat



PS4 WW is still tracking ahead of PS2. And seems that even for USA PS4 2018 will be able to match PS2 2005 at the end.
