Rumor has it that The Last of Us: Part 2 is releasing in 2019. I think it may release in the fall- around September- about 6 months after Days Gone’s release to give that game some breathing room. If Sony bundles TLOU2 for Black Friday and the holidays at that $199 price point - it’s going to move a ton of consoles!

It will certainly be a solid mover during the holidays but sales will diminish being the 3rd year of $199 bundles.

2016-$249+Uncharted 4

2017-$199

2018-$199+Spider-Man

 

2016 saw PS4 sell 6.2 million in the holiday season

2017 saw PS4 sell 5.9 million in the holiday season

2018 saw PS4 sell 5.6 million in the holiday season

 

Holiday sales have decreased from 2016-2018 despite having better deals, which isnt a bad thing, its completely expected out of a console to decline in the 5th & 6th holiday seasons and I'm expecting that trend to continue regardless of how good the bundles/price cuts are this year.

100 million is such a given by now, the real question is if it will reach 120 million (which i dont think its too crazy honestly... but still thats another 30 million).

If PS4 does 5'3M in holiday season 2019 it will be an enormous success. Even if it does 5'0M. It will be the last big holiday sales for PS4 though because next year should be PS5 launch aiming for 5'0M sold before year ends.

Absolutely, those would be very good sales even for a console in its prime.

What i think is going to happen this year is that PS4 is going to do better than expected in 2019(thanks to a pricecut and even if not), until holiday season comes and then, the old legs of PS4 will be noticeable and no deals will be able to disguise that.

A price cut (Slim-$249/Pro-$349) can definitely help keep sales relatively stable through the regular months but it would also make a $199 bundle during the holidays less of a big deal so I agree that its age will definitely start to show.

It will still sell great in 2019, I'm guessing like ~15 million.

Yeah, 15-16M is reasonable with just a 50$ discout. I agree. To reach 16-17M levels it needs a better discount.

Ya a $199/299 cut for Slim/Pro would be needed and I just cant see Sony giving them that big of a permanent price cut.

Yeah, when i said that the other day maybe i was too much optimistic, mostly knowing how Sony is acting recently is not going to happen. 16M is a better prediction.

"Days Gone" is coming in april, cant wait of this Survival-Adventure : D

Kingdom Hearts 3 and Resident Evil 2 remake push PS4 sales strong in January - that's my forecast :) Especially in japan.
