This was my first longer analysis piece. I know there are some points I didn't cover into the closest details possible. I mainly wanted to see what it would take for the PS4 to have any chance of outselling the PS2. Everything needs to go right for the PS4 to even have a slim chance, with a $100 price cut this year, while the PS5 needs have a start as slow as the PS3.
if this article does well enough, I'll look into doing longer analysis pieces more often. As most of you know the Gap Charts are bite size articles, which is the main original sales articles I do. Other than posting the weekly hardware estimates.
Thank you all who took the time to read the article.
