PS4 still beasting in Europe. Will Corona be under control by the time the new consoles hit? Also could this stop Switch momentum from hitting what it could?

It's already safe to say that the coronavirus will limit Switch in Japan because we are getting weekly sales from Famitsu and Nintendo had issued an apology in advance that Switch stock in Japan was bound to be affected. A week ago Japanese consumers rushed out to buy consoles before shortages hit, so sales jumped to 80k for the hybrid SKU for a total of 100k with the rest being Lites. This week the hybrid SKU accounted for only 20k while Lite sales jumped to 60k for the total of 80k you see in the original post of this thread. Because of that, it's clear that the hybrid SKU is already facing shortages, because it has been the more popular SKU in Japan for months.

While the past two weeks didn't hurt global sales, the SKU breakdown tells the story that a negative impact is imminent.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I'm surprised by PS4 still holding this well long after Xmas.

In Europe PS4 outsold Xbox 7:1 this week.

And biggest market on the World as well !

And in Japan the PS4 roughly outsold the Xbox 200:1 And to add insult to injury, the Japanese sales of the PS4 this week aren't even that much impressive, I mean 7700 PS4 units sold is not exactly a juggernaut in sales.

I wonder how much (if any) impact we'll see from Amazon cutting the PS4 Pro price by $100?

I'd imagine quite a bit. That is a massive price drop if permanent! 3DS dropped it's price by $80 and it's sales exploded. Granted that was earlier in its life whereas PS4 is on its way out. Still, that's really cheap for a great device in the ps4. I'd consider getting one myself at that point, but I'm really trying to focus on newer games for 2020 and not 2019 games or older.

If you take a PS4 this year, don't forget to take Persona 5 Royal, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Ghost Of Tsushima and The Last Of Us Part. 2 this year !

I don't typically enjoy JRPG games (Xenoblade being an exception), so I don't know if I'd like P5R?

Only FF game I have played and best is 9, and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would, especially the music and story. I am playing 7 off and on my Switch but have more or less lost interest asnivr shifted to newer games. Is the remake only coming to PS4 and not PC? If so I'd consider doing a PS4 for that, but I'd probably rather wait for next gen so I can play newer games as well.

Ghost is a souls-like game right? Only souls like game I've played and enjoyed (somewhat) is Jedi Fallen Order. I don't enjoy games where you die a thousand times (Celeste being the exception). Thr art style looks stunning though so I may get it just for that. Beautiful game!

I would rather play Duke Nukem Forever than any Zombie game.

There is a video by a french man who explain for newcomers why Persona 5 Royal is fantastic but like I said, it's in french lol. 

Final Fantasy VII Remake is exclusive for one year on PS4. So I guess a PC version will be available 10th April 2021.

Actually Ghost of Tsushima is not a souls-like, by the way I'm not a fan either of souls-like, it's an action/open world game with some stealth. I have a feeling it will be the most surprising PS4 exclusive.

The Last Of Us is way more than a zombie game. It's more about the story and the survivor feelings for me. ^^

I'd be willing to try any of the first three. But I just can't tolerate any Zombie type game. I don't enjoy horror/scary games. I want games to make me feel good not freaked out.

Nice

Anyway The Last Of Us Prologue will make you very sad. I played the game twice, I cried twice. So it's really for people who accept surviving and depressing stuffs in a game.
