Record braking? or is the wii still faster?



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

On Dec 6, 2016 they announced 50 million so over 20 million in the last 12 months. Great sales!



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Pretty impressive, although what everybody expected I guess. I personally though PSVR was quite a bit over 2Million already, considering last 2 quarters they had reportedly around 500K each.



Nice! 17.2m sold since January 1st 2016! Last december PS4 sold over 3.82m according to VGC.

It's going to be a 20m+ year, and ps4's best ever.

Also 617.8m software sales already. It's easily going to reach the 2nd highest selling software system of all time. 



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

I think in the same period Wii has sold between 76-77m, but PS4 will have more legs for sure.

According to vgchartz, ps4 was at 66 mil at the end of October. So 4 mil ps4 were sold in November. Is that possible? Or vgchartz is undertracking ps4?

Wii is still ahead by about 7-8 million.

Sony handled the whole life circle of the PS4 really well. They capitalized perfectly at the mistakes of Microsoft.

They deserved to be successful.

Ps4 will be ahead by end of next year. I think wii 4th or 5th year was really bad.
