Let me hear your sales by financial year. I’d like to see how you came to that number. Personally, I’m thinking 107M.

Way to many predictions in one post. But I do agree. I am expecting the PS4 to sell 120 million + so we can at least agree on that

Vote the Mayor for Mayor!

I dont think so.PS4 will still sell incredibly next year, but there is only so much it can do.PS2 had the sales it had not because each passing year sold more and more, but because it had consistant sales through the years.So the PS4 being down next year is not a bad thing, nor it means that it will sell badly.

My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Prediction: Will outsell PS2

Predicted 15+ million lifetime-sales for God of War:

Around the Network

Im with you on the PS4 going north of 120m lifetime sales.

even if they shrink the chip to 7nm, and sell the PS4 slim (500gb) at 150$...  thats a bold prediction, and pretty unlikely to happend.

Kind of an unfair comparison. PS4 has so many more colors.

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

GBC :  Colors on screen:  Supports 10, 32 or 56!

PS4 :  HDR (WGC)... 1 billion+ colors?

i agree PS4 will outsell them, but what is you time scale?

software is way off, HZ (my game of the gen) i think will top 6ish mil life time.

Days Gone - 2.5m
God of War, you might be right
Spiderman.. 3mil, maybe 4
i think Detroit will struggle to move units tbh

2018 Hit List: Shadow of the Colossus, Detroit, Dreams, Spider-Man, God Of War, Days Gone, Medievil, Tomb Raider 3, RDR2

I honestly think HZD is already around the 6m ish mark.

SuperData thought it might do around 6m this year and reach a total lifetime sales of ~8m, this was a early prediction but they probably got it pretty close.
