Forums - Sony Discussion - Ps4 @100mill shipped!

I'm not one to downplay this great achievement, but do we know what kind of shipments this is?

I remember for PS1 and most of the PS2 era, Sony would bolster about "production shipments", which only meant they had produced a unit, and hadn't even really shipped it to a retailer yet. That created A LOT of confusion back then. And, to this day I'm not entirely certain if the numbers we have for PS2 shipments are entirely correct. They changed the metric halfway through the gen.

So, forgive me, but I'm not a hundred percent trusting of Sony's announced numbers..

Wow...

Wow...

Didn't Sony just listed the sales of all their PlayStation systems some months ago? And financial reports every quarter? There should be no confusion whatsoever.

Wow indeed.

My thoughts exactly.



Congratulations Now let's see how high it ends up going, I think 125 million is realistic.

Yes, me and a member here we think 131,5 million.

Our dear ioi at a time when Sony reported sales of PS4 (and VGC was undertracking for like more than 10%, months after launch) he was refusing to update because he need thrustworthy sources and said "if sony numbers could be trusted"

Figured I'd take the suggestion and make the actual averages, no consoles excluded.  All figures are from Wikipedia (the majority of which are from financial reports), except Xbox consoles (as some weren't up to date), which are taken from VGC's Platform Totals.

SONY

ALL HOME CONSOLES - 447.89M across 4 consoles = 111.97M average

ALL HANDHELDS - 97M across 2 consoles = 48.5M average

ALL CONSOLES - 544.89M across 6 consoles = 90.82M average

NINTENDO

ALL HOME CONSOLES (includes Switch) - 317.75M across 7 consoles = 45.39M average

ALL HANDHELDS (includes Switch) - 466.94M across 6 consoles = 77.82M average

ALL CONSOLES - 747.82M across 12 consoles = 62.32M average

XBOX

ALL CONSOLES - 154.52M across 3 consoles = 51.51M average



Sony deserves the success for playing the right cards at the right time. Congrats to the blue house!

I remember that so very well.
