Vita 16.13M is 74.47M away from the average

Virtua Boy 0.77M is 61.53M away from the average

Using numerical difference instead of proportional difference is illogical.

By that logic a console that sold 95m compared to an average of 100m would be a bigger anomaly than a console selling 0.1m compared to an average of 5m.

Whereas selling just 0.1m compared to your usual 5m is clearly an anomaly, while selling 95m compared to your average of 100m is basically normal.

As illogical as removing Virtua Boy because it was a dud.

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

I remember "won't hit 100 million" posts from as recently as fall 2017. Even who made them.

We all make mistakes though!

We had some saying it wouldn't reach 100M between end of 2018 and this year when it crossed 95M shipped. Not sure if he was trolling or what not.

It's called removing an anomaly/outlier from a data set. lol.



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)

Dude, it's basic statistics. 



Sony deserves it. They've done a good job with the PS4 this gen.

Congratulation at Sony for this achievement



MY two cents. Just because Virtual Boy was very special, doesn't mean it shouldn't count. There's quite a few very special systems throughout the industry's history. It was made. It was promoted in ads. And it was put on sale in the open market. It made it though all the relevant checkpoints in becoming an actual product. I don't get the need to be philosophical about it. It was just that bad.

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

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

Same over here, we say "el plei" as well (i guess "el" is the only difference), so you have friends that will ask you stuff like, "te la pasaste jugando play el fin de semana?" and even if you were playing on your PC you just answer yes, since its understood that we are just talking about video games here.

The popularity of the brand along with the fact that its shorter to say play instead of "video juegos" made it stick.

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.

Yep.... crazy sales.

Most of these are from europe + RoW.
Because if you look at the NPDs, the Switch is killing the PS4.

It just goes to show, other markets matter too.
That whole "world wide in the US" meme :)

PSVita would be an outlier on Playstation data as well. All other numbers are from 81M PSP to 158M, so the 15M PSVita is very much an outlier.

When something is a wrong data, sure remove the outlier. But when it very much exist, removing it doesn't make as much sense.
