Forums - Sales Discussion - PlayStation+Ninty+Xbox shipment history since 1995, UPDATED May 2015.

Home console total sales will be like 6th gen, and that will be fine....

And since when we take seriously Sony predictions?????, they are never on spot. They said they expect 5m PS4 shipped for fiscal year and ended shipping around 7m...So, why we should take for granted PS4 will ship 20m until next fiscal year???

I think people is focusing its buying habits in specific ocasions, like this Watch Dogs or Mario Kart 8 launches or Holiday season, and because of that, that's why expect Holiday sales to be HUGE, mostly for PS4 and very good for Xbox One and WiiU too. Don't forget Destiny's launch later this year either...

I can agree on handhelds tough, because they're falling hard and i don't think Nintendo or Sony could change anything about it.

Seeing as these charts include handhelds, is anyone even remotely surprised by these numbers? Were it not for the sudden huge rise and then "fall" of handheld gaming the charts would look a lot more consistent.

This year ranks 15th out of 19 years for Playstation home consoles.

This year ranks 17th out of 19 years for Nintendo home consoles.

And people believe Nintendo won't launch new hardware until 2017-2018? Those are clearly haters who wants Nintendo to fail.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile


That's terrible!

The numbers for the last couple years are, and their decline, not the charts. The charts are awesome, thanks. Looks like we're going back to 5th Gen shipment numbers.

This is just going to encourage the doom-mongers.


with just cause surely?

No, I don't think so. The console market may be shrinking but it's certainly not doomed. Sales for software are a good indicator that the industry is still a long way from being doomed despite what some people might say.

I havent said the console market is doomed.

While we're at it, could you do these graphs without the handhelds? Just for comparison's sake.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
