I was looking at the totals and it currently trails gameboy by about 17 million.
With PS5 having BC will it’s price severely effect the long term ps4 sales? For instance if ps4 is only $150 cheaper than PS5 at launch would more people just save and have the ability to play all the games? Alternatively PS5 could come in at $500 or ps4 could get a permanent drop to $200 or both which would obviously make it a far bigger leap to get to the next gen and probably drive more sales to the ps4.
Now all of that could be irrelevant as PS4 will still sell a few million this year with the holidays coming up and it probably being fairly cheap in some bundles (there were $200 ones last year) and then it’ll have the whole year until November (though I wish to god they would release in September or October and get that initial sales boom out of the way BEFORE the holidays and get a 4 month sold out window rather than just 2) to sell with PS5 only stealing mindshare.
i think it’ll pass the gameboy sometime in early 2021 (I’ll say Q2) personally as the sales are declining anyway and ps3 took quite the plummet after ps4 was announced even with the lack of BC. So I think it’ll need this holiday and next and then probably about 4 more months to pass the GB but I do think it’ll continue a decent deal afterwards with it being made from less custom parts and being able to sell in developing nations for years to come as those parts come down in price
