I've been considering getting a 3rd PS4 at that price. Well actually my gf has been trying to convince me we should get another one. I wouldn't mind getting the x1 s as it's super cheap right now. But the gf would rather we have a 3rd ps4 then a our 1st xbox 1 xD

Can't blame her kkkkk

@OP good, now let's see if they keep the 199 pricetag for the rest of holiday or just Xmas, and that they fully cut to 199 for next year.

The only thing I fear is that after the deal is sold out and over, that the demand for the PS4 will crater hard and have comparatively slow December sales. It has already started trending with higher sales in November than December, but I fear it could get worse from here.

If PS4 sell big just think how well Switch will sell, it's gonna be massive

I'm not aware of what deals there are for Switch, but I'm sure there will be a sales thread about that as well, as it's sure to sell a lot.
So it would be appreciated if in this thread you could at least discuss the platform at hand.
Otherwise it may look like a back-handed compliment like "Nice sales that will be completely overshadowed by the sales of this other system."


Note to other users in this thread; Please do not jump on that post just to remind them of what I just said, since it has been addressed.

FF7R is big though... thats like Halo levels of big.
Ghosts of Tsushima is probably like gears levels.
The Last of Us Part 2, is alot bigger than a halo title is.

Theres stuff for 2020... that should make new consumers want to jump on board, ontop of the already really solid lineup & library of games there.

Also like I said, that forecast down to 13.5m, is something thats gonna be blown past imo.

The system selling power of games diminishes the further into the cycle we go, especially when it comes to franchises that already have a presence on the system.

FF7R & TLOU2 will both be huge sellers and will definitely move some hardware but the wont stop the decline.

As for the forcast getting blown past, that's not happening, they already adjusted it down twice this year and if they wanted to lowball than they would have done so from the beginning.

I do agree with your points and that a down revision probably wasn't made to just brag that they overshoot it by some million.

But if they decide to make a permanent cut there is chance that they overshoot it anyway (but the down revision indicates they didn't want to cut, but plans change).

Amazing, this $199 deal is the best thing ever, wish we had that in Europe.

Next stop for PS4 is outselling Gameboy, need to sell 16 million more units to achieve that, I'm thinking October 2020.

There where a Benji or something here that worked at Gamestop and had some "hints" for us from time to time.

The deal is real good, so yeah, I should sell really well.
Now selling more than the last several months combined means it had really slowed down before.
Seriously Sony, get it a permanent price cut already, it needs it, there are lots of people that still want it, but $300 is too much in 2020.

Sony stated early in the year that they would be focusing on hardware profit over market expansion. So I don't think we will see them dropping the price anytime soon. 

IMO, this is a short sighted strategy. The real profit is in services and software, which requires getting the hardware in more hands.

At any rate, if this information is true, that is great news for PS4. If it is still selling this well at this point, with PS5 already being discussed by Sony for most of the year, then it just shows how strong the system is. If it continues to surpass expectations, then more people might have to come to terms with the possibility that it may just end up reaching or surpassing PS2 when it is all said and done. 

I would love to see a hint about how PSVR is doing as well. It is a bit slow on hype with Iron Man slipping into next year. I'm curious if Astrobot, Blood and Truth, Everybody's Golf VR, and some of the back catalog, along with the $199.99 + 5 Games bundle will be enough to help it move some decent numbers?



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
