Maybe it´s known by some, but its impresive how Playstation brand sells in the rest of the world. I didn´t realize that PS4 is already the sencond best selling console after the untouchable PS2.
Numbers acording to VGCHARTZ are:
PS2: 25.57 M
PS4: 16.21 M
PS3: 12.46 M
Wii: 9.48 M
XBOX 360: 9.16
XBOX ONE: 4.69
I don´t know if there is a piracy helped the PS2 with the numbers, as in many south american countries like mine piracy was very extended. But, awesome numbers for PS2.
Also most 3rd world countries are poorer, but Wii sold less than PS3... weird.
XBOX was the most surprising of all for me. In my country some digital Microsoft games are selling half the price than in PSN. Still XBOX ONE sold 1 machine for every 4 Playstation 4.
Maketing can explain some of that too.
When I go to a shopping mall, places sell more PS games than Microsoft or Nintendo, they say they are close to the digital price, and XBOX digital is cheaper so it doesn´t make sense to sell them. They don´t have as many.
Japan is buying Nintendo Machines like hell, and they love to play mobile, but the Rest of the world has the greatest number of countries of every market and PS sales amaze me.
