Phew, did quite a bit of adjusting. The PS4 has been adjusted up for this year AND last year.

Great work @PAOerfulone 

So the end result is that it sold more but the gap stays the same?



Around the Network

More or less. Yeah. It was adjusted up to corrolate with @ZhugeEX's recent announcement of the PS4 reaching 30 million units in the U.S. and that those numbers account for 30% of the PS4's total worldwide sales, which would mean the PS4 is at 100 million units sold now as of the week ending September 15th. With VGChartz data being two weeks behind, it was adjusted up 99.6 million units as of August 31st so that with around 180-200k units a week would bring it to that mark.

But yeah, the gap is essentially the same as it was before.

The amount of PS4 sold in EU+Rotw must still remain very very high, PS4 is 1.25M behing NSW on the year in Japan and up until May when we still had numbers it was 450k behind in the us and based on estiates it would likely be 750k in the US for total of 2M between the two markets.



Im honestly surprised the Switch hasn't over taken the PS4 sales total for 2019 yet....
I thought that before September, that would already have happend.

Granted I think the Switch will have a awesome holidays....

Also PAOerfulone thanks for doing all this work.

That's kind of what I am refering to in my post above.

The two biggest single markets in the world the Switch has outperformed the PS4 by a big margin so far of the year. European countries and the rest of the world must be doing crazy numbers.

Just posted Week 36 numbers and all 3 systems saw an increase from last week. Especially the PS4 thanks in large part due to Monster Hunter World: Iceborne in Japan.

XBO now already 1M behind last year's sales, and the PS4, despite the rise in sales, is losing 100k a week now compared to last year. It's still doing fine, it's just not able to pull comparable numbers to the previous years anymore.

Switch Week 38 will be glorious. I think Japan alone should beat those 174k with the launch of the Lite (apparently the Lite alone sold between 150k and 200k, add to those both the old and new base model...), making the gap between this and last year explode.



My 15m prediction for PS4 this year might be slightly too low. 14.8m-15.5m is probably the range imo. Around 107m sold-through by the end of the year!

My 18.8m for Switch might turn out to be a little low also, 18.6m-19.5m.



Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)


Just posted Week 37 numbers, and with them, history!!
The PlayStation 4 has become just the 6th video game system to sell 100 million units worldwide. In doing so, it becomes just the 3rd PlayStation system to do it alongside its predecessors the original PlayStation and the PlayStation 2. As well as just the 4th home console to do it alongside it's aforementioned predecessors and the Nintendo Wii. Speaking of the Wii, that's the next system in line to be surpassed by the PS4 in just a matter of weeks.

Meanwhile, the Xbox One got a noticeable bump from last week, we can credit Gears 5 for that, most likely. And the Nintendo Switch leads all platforms this week just before the worldwide launch of the Nintendo Switch Lite, and if Japan serves as an indication, next week's numbers are going to be massive!
