Another week goes to the PS4.



It is great how the hardware numbers are up to date!



Europe is big region. am expecting this PGW/Gamescom to deliver yet again

if it wasnt for RAM prices PS4 pro would  be 300. pretty sure a significant chunk of hardware cost is that

 

assuming PS5 will come out in 2020 (its likely will if you understand Kodera comments. e.g fiscal year 2021 sony takes a crouch. which means the PS5 will launch Q2,3,4 2020.) PS4 would be at around 105 million units

 

they should give us PS5 only games. however they should support the PS4 throughout 2020 and 2021. after that stop making exclusives for PS4.

Another win for PS4 ^^, E3 week will be interesting

PS4 is at 79.5m now, two weeks until their E3 conference... will it reach 80m, or fall ever so short? :o



Nothing new. Same ps4 dominance as every week. While that’s cool, I’d like to see a shakeup soon. Something big to challenge Sony. It’s been close to two years since the last time Xbox won an npd.

Otherwise great numbers as always. 3ds is really starting to slow.



PS4's full potential not being shown again.



Amazing how stable they all were from last week.

It will be very intersting to see how they approach things in this next transition. If they do indeed go on with AMD for PS5, it will be the first time back to back PlayStation's have shared similar CPU and GPU tech. If they shoot for 4K/60 with PS5, cutting back games to run at 720p/30 and 1080p/30 on PS4 and PS4 Pro may not be all that far fetched. It is a far cry from trying to support PS3, PSP, PS Vita, and PS4 with 4 totally different achitectures. 

Looking at right now. PS4 is still selling strong, and it is still sitting at that $299.99 price point. Even with the upcoming E3 sale, they are not budging from that number. Sony has got to be racking in profits on PS4 Slim right now. It will be interesting to see how things hold up over the June - August drought. Once September hits, PS4 should be on a roll. I just don't think Nintendo and Microsoft have anything to slow down the train. Only thing I can think of is full fledged Pokemon on Switch.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
