If PS4 beats Wii's lifetime sales with 60% marketshare is it impressive then?

Depend. If PS4 will outsell the Wii, and will break 60% marketshare, yes, we can say that the PS4 sales LIFETIME are more impressive.

Just, i don't think PS4 will hit the Wii sales, and even if will, i will be still more shocked by the 2008 Wii sales. because, expect DS, no one console have sold at this level. Not even  PS2.

PS2 didn't sell on that level but PS2 sold because of how amazing it was which is why it continued to keep selling.. and selling.. and selling.. and reaching 150 million in sales.

i still believe PS4 will outsell the Wii thanks to those PS legs.

This isn't the sense of the thread.

well i see you people talking about lifetime sales as well... so i dont see why its so wrong for me to point out my opinion on that topic.

but if you want my opinion about the Wii selling more in its early years, well here it is:

yeah the Wii sold better but it doesnt impress me as much since:

1) it was a cheaper console.

2) it had the biggest gimmick gaming has ever seen.

3) thanks to the gimmick everyone (and i mean everyone) wanted to play with that thing, even my 67 year old uncles had a wii, even some (girl) friends of mine had a wii for all those dancing games (and they werent gamers, they just wanted the novelty).

the PS4 on the other side is a straight console with no new amazing gimmick that is also more expensive and appeals to just gamers.



Ps4 is behind Wii but I am almost sure will end up surpassing it or atleast a tie. Wii was way ahead of ps2 and all of a sudden it stopped selling. That wont happen to ps4. Also 399 > 250.

Next let's compare Wii to ps2 and joke about how irrelevant GC was?

What were you expecting with this thread? To show Wii was the worst leader ever or that even when close to 50% marketshare Nintendo didn't get any support from 3rd parties?

So ignore the fact that from what I remember.....the Xbox One has more sales than the Xbox 360 in the same time spin......that the PS4 has more sales than the PS3 in the same time spin.
THE ONLY CONSOLE NOT OUTSELLING THEIR LAST GEN COUNTERPART IS THE WII U. Lol

That's if you even want to count the Wii U since they have near none 3rd party support...which makes it basically a bigger 3Ds.....Should be in its own catagory since there isn't competition for the biggest games of the year from 3rd party developers. While I do own a Wii U and I like it, it feels like a Nintendo legacy console since exclusives are basically all it has worth playing.

So considering its DIRECT competition is OUTSELLING it's previous gen.....the 50 percent, or as someone pointed out around 65 between the two competing consoles is pretty impressive considering both are ahead of its previous gen. Imo.

PS3 is curerently at 85m. You don't think without a horrible launch, expensive start and losing major market share to the competition it can manage 15m more? (PS3 might reach 90m, so 10m more in that case.) I see it selling better than PS3/X360 in any scenario.

Let me see.

2013: 4,500,000
2014: 14,000,000
2015: 15,000,000
2016: 17,000,000
2017: 14,000,000
2018: 11,000,000
2019: 7,000,000 [PS5 YEAR]
2020 and after: another 10,000,000? (and i'm generus)
Lifetime: Around 92.5m... maybe a -+10% of difference in those numbers.

 

Well, that's what i think. Can you write your prediction Year on Year?

I won't do one because I'm waiting to see what happens when PS4 Slim comes out, but I'll say that yours looks kinda like you shape it to fit your prediction, rather than shaping your prediction to fit what you think it will sell.
For example, you have PS4 drop by 10 million for the three years leading up to when you think PS5 will launch, rather than increase as the PS3 did for the three years up to PS4's launch.
I don't see where you are getting these multimillion drop figures from?

Also, 2016 is likely the year of PS4 Slim. You think it'll only sell 1m better, in spite of having so much more market share interest than PS3 did, and still hasn't gotten a price cut? For PS3 it raised sales by 3 million that fiscal year. And an additional 1,3m increase the following fiscal year. You however predict only a 2m raise the first year, and then a 3m drop the next year? This doesn't make sense.

Not sure where you're getting the idea for these numbers when PS4 is more popular than PS3 for sure, and has still not gotten a price cut nor any of its main seller games.

Look at this:

2010 fiscal year sales 13.0
2011 fiscal year sales 14.3
2012 fiscal year sales 13.9

Then look at yours:

2016: 17,000,000
2017: 14,000,000
2018: 11,000,000

The massive drops look rather strange to me. And when we add your numbers up, it ends up at 82,5m, just below PS3.
Looks like you added those multimillion drops out of nowhere to make it land below PS3 figures? If not, why do you believe it will have such massive drops rather than increase?



Wii costed what? 200$? vs 400$ PS4
