Following adjustments PS4 sales estimates on VGChartz are now at 97,698,942 units for the end of June. That would put units on store shelves and on way to stores at 2.3 million.

Previously was at 96,901,137 for 29th June, so an adjustment up of 797k!

Which means the YoY drop has gone from -24.7% to just -13.4%! Not as big of a drop off as we thought. (I'm assuming all the adjustments were fore weeks in 2019.)

Yes. Most adjustments were for the most recent quarter (June 30, 2019) with some from the previous quarter (March 31, 2019).

Wow....3'2M shipped this quarter and better software sales than last year. I remember saying at the beginning of the year that i expected a great Feb-May performance due to software lineup. VGC numbers seemed to prove me wrong until now but in the end it's what it happened.

But the biggest milestone and the one that is going to be difficult to surpass by any other console is the "Fastest console to reach 100M shipped". Faster than Wii and PS2....., without any official and definitve price cuts in recent years.....That's super impressive. This proves too that US and JP are less and less relevant for Sony as times goes on. Playstation brand has to be muuuuuuuuuch more powerful than the competition eveywhere else.

And there's still people doubting Sony and the future of the Playstation brand.......

Well in my country its by far more popular than the other two, we even use the word "Play" instead of video games.

If there has been anything remotely close to a consensus here is that most of us expect 130M sold in the end for PS4. Nobody seems to disagree on that...

So boringly predictable is Playstation 4???

Going back through some threads, you'd be surprised. 

Damn it CGI..., you are crushing my dreams of a peaceful and universal agreement on something relating to console gaming!! .

In Spain is very similar..., we use here "la plei (play)" for everything related to consoles.



PS4 after adjustments is the best selling console of 2019 so far, which is crazy for a system that is in its 6th year.
Sure switch will end up as the best selling console of 2019 by the end of the year, but it's still amazing that PS4 managed to stay ahead for the 1st half of 2019.

Yes, adjustments mean that the current 2019 sales (as of July 13th) are:

PS4 - 6,456,010

Switch - 6,323,399

And you're also right that Switch will end up the best selling console of 2019. By quite a large margin I imagine.

It's possible the adjustments are too much though. I might have aimed for 2.5m on shelves rather than 2.3m.



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)

According to this very site, the sellthrough for both last year in this same period of the year was (as of July 14th 2018):

PS4 - 7,43M

Switch - 5,29M

So, PS4 is 13% down and Switch is 19% up.

If PS4 mantains this rate until the end of the year it should be around 15'6M sold in 2019. Maybe around 15M by the end of the year then....

If Switch mantains this rate it will be 19'4M sold in 2019. But this will meant Nov+Dec would be 19% higher too, and i don't expect that (i expect a flat holiday season compared to last year), so probably will be more around 18'5-19'0M by the end of the year.

In the end, it seems numbers are going to be what Sony and Nintendo expect for the year....



Nearly 1 million in PS4 adjustments. Holy hell.
