If continues to be down almost 40% and then again next year, it could end up taking taking quite some time.

EDIT: Though I admit I haven’t done the math to see where it would actually end up with such a decline.

If it drops 45% in 2020, 55-60% in 2021 and more until discontinuation, It will pass the gameboy sometime in 2022 and may or may not reach 120m.

I see that some people didn't learn the lesson after believing it won't pass Wii.

Missing sales data? It's right in the front page and tools option.

I'm talking about Final Fantasy VII Remake impact that will beat Convid-19 and stop the wars on the world.

I'm talking about The Last Of Us Part. 2 impact that will be the first Occidental game to pass 10 million sales in Japan.

I'm talking about Ghost Of Tsushima impact that will be the new reference of masterpiece gaming by Sucker Punch (the genius behind Sly Cooper)

I'm talking about Persona 5 Royal impact that will touch new souls on the Occidental territory and make have them a revelation.

I'm talking of all these multiplatform games like Cyberpunk 2077 or Resident Evil 3 that will change the world too.

I'm talking about... PlayStation 4 !

Wow.... the shipments are at 109 million and some people still believe it might not reach 120 million lifetime. What a world, what a world...

Some people just have no idea what they're talking about.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

I'm choosing this time next year. However like others have stated, it could very well do it at the end of this year.

I have just seen the 109 million's number on a four weeks old article. I didn't know. Thank you for the news.

If you're going to make this kind of post, at least you should try to write a reasoning for your statement. As in, explain the relation between shippments being at 109m and you thinking it will reach 120m for sure.

MY statement was very clearly explained by math. It was at 109m shipped and 106m sold at the end of 2019. Sold through is what matters (difference between shipped and sold will get smaller and smaller anyway). A 45% drop in 2020 would lead to 114m and another 55-60% drop in 2021 would put it around 117m. The ongoing decline afterwards would lead to maybe another 2-3m sales before discontinuation. Given the rate of ps4 drop so far, those numbers are very realistic.

See the difference between an argument and simply dismissing what others said?

And it would drop 45% this year because of witchcraft right?
