Really great sales, only the 6th console ever to reach 100 million.

Homeconsoles, only 4 have ever gone over 100m.

1 PS2
2 PS1
3 Wii
4 PS4

Soon the top3 best selling consoles, will all be Playstation.
PS4 is bound to take #2 spot in that list.

Ye and even including handhelds, 3 of the top 5 will be PlayStation. They have a very consistent track record of success. Their average sales for a console is 90.6m, that's including the Vita. No other company can say that.

Average PlayStation sales - 90.6m (Over 6 systems)
Average Nintendo Sales - 67.93m (Over 11 systems) (Not including virtual boy)
Average Xbox Sales - 51.5m (Over 3 systems)

Hell PlayStation only have one system that didn't make it into the Top 10.

If we are including all of PS then we should include all of Nintendo =]

Lol, exactly. If we're going to include Sony's lowest selling system, you have to include Nintendo's. Or exclude both, whichever floats your boat.

@OP

Damn. At 6 years and still $299, the PS4 just outsold the Switch by 1.1M units. Guessing Switch must not be doing the greatest in EU if there is still that kind of discrepancy. Still good, of course, just not great.



Some very interesting info here. Looks like PS4 is on track to be the second best selling home console of all time, within the next few months.

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. 

That is really impressive.
Although I don't think it will get even close to PS2, unless they do a significant price drop.

For comparison this is what other PlayStation consoles shipped after the successor launched:

PS1 - ~29m

PS2 - ~48m

PS3 - 7m

So while the likely 38m it would need to ship after PS5 launches isn't unheard of, I really don't think it can do it. I'll be pleasantly surprised if it manages half of that post-ps5.

A lot of it does depend on the strategy Sony go for I guess.

Just to add onto this with adjusted for inflation prices:

PS1 - $69
PS2 - $118
PS3 - $300

So the PS3 at it's cheapest RRP is the same as the current RRP of the PS4. Mental. Guess they really never managed to get production costs down that far and that really shows why the PS3 legs were so bad.

We'll never see a console as cheap as the ps2 again though, even adjusted for inflation. The controllers are far more expensive to produce then they were, the now necessary inclusion of storage also drives up the minimum possible price.

I was wondering how much the older PS models sold after their successors hit the market, and the lowest price point they hit, so kudos for the info.

Also, I added the additional info you posted to the OP, since the OP was pretty lacking in detail, like you said.

With the PS4 not yet hitting a permanent $199 and being more popular than the PS3, I would imagine it should be able to hit at least 12M-15M units sold after the PS5 launches.

The most likely scenario is that PS4 was overshipped this quarter which is why they dropped their full year forcast by 1 million units while Switch was under shipped because they are phasing out the current model since 2 new models are releasing this quarter.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Playstation is the best



My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

Would be very unlikely to overship 1M this late on the life of the console. Seems more like they reduced the forecast to keep certainty they will exceed as they have all years.
