1) You compared PS4 with PS3 and XB360. that is wrong, because it is the last generation.
It's not wrong, wrong is a subjective thing, I don't think it's wrong to compare time periods, at the end of the day they're consoles, they have video games, a changing library, it's a product in the same market, so I'm well within my right to make comparisons, using that data as a base.
For a comparation: the Wii is increase by a fucking 40% the second year, but Wii U only by 10%, DS is rise by 100%, but 3DS by 5%, and PSP is rise by 30%, versus PSV that have sold less than last year...
So could PS4, it's 1st year of exclusives wasn't that great, it has a lot of games, which appeal to a more varied kind of gamer, the games coming are looking a lot better in terms of their quality compared to what came out last year.
PS4 is much more popular than last gen Playstation and Xbox, no reason why it won't see a major increase with better games coming.
I'm not using handhelds as they're a different market to home consoles.
The first year PS4 have sold lika a monster because the hype, that now is ending, so, if it don't will be down this year, it will rise by 10-15 %, or maximum 20%...
LOL PS4 sold because it was the better system, it has the Playstation name, lol there's no evidence that PS4 sold on hype alone, hype doesn't last for over a year, unless there's a reason for it.
It's logical to think that better games will feed the fire of sales for the platform.
2) 25-27 M?????
No seriusly, the fuck!?!?!?
Yep, seriously, PS4 sold 14.1 million with like 2 major AAA exclusives, some indies, 3 cross gen releases and 3rd party. This year PS4 has games of exceedingly better quality, much bigger volume.
You'll notice that 25-27M came with a proviso, a price cut down to $299 and GT7, along with all of the games we know about coming to the system, some of that may not happen.
Just off of the back of the games we know about, that are definitely coming it should see a 30% increase in sales, minimum, there's a lot of current gen exclusive and outright PS4 exclusives coming.
A $349 price point is very likely, if not guaranteed, that along with those games will probably see a 50% increase, so 21.15 is likely off of the back of that and of course great games bundles and better games on PS+, plus added features to the OS.
You know that the Wii have sold less than 25,000,000 in 2008, and it have sold 500k-600k in a normal NPD (2M during the holiday), and 40,000-50,000 all week in Japan!? PS4 have 0 chance for sell as the Wii...
Based on nothing, you give no evidence that supports that.
Hell there's even China that I haven't taken into consideration, that market could easily equal millions in hardware sales being added to the bottom line, Sony even showed how asia is on the rise at TGS.
It comes down to the level of games, the volume of them, the amount of sales achieved with none of that and of course a higher price point.
PS4 didn't just sell on hype in 2014, it's sold like it has because it's a great device and people have enjoyed the games that have come out so far, the market wants the platform, the sales are higher in baseline weeks than they were before, so it only supports such increases as being likely for the platform.
