Forums - Sales Discussion - Why Play Station is always held at such high expectations, unlike competition ?

While reading some thread posts, a user wrote that PS4 sales have staggered. 112m sales on the 7th year seems staggering??? On another instance they proclaimed a certain console that sold 61m in 10 years  a success, while PS3 was a big flop!!.

Example:

the steak of competitors consoles is looking like this:

61m/49m/32m/22m/100m/14m+59m(2012 till 2020)

and like this

24m/87m/49m

and PS is looking like this:

103m/158m/88m/112m.

What would happen if a PS console had sold 14m in 4 years  ? This site would proclaim the end of playstation.

Do you also witness the double standards ? 



Around the Network

The Vita has sold 16M in 8 years, yet no one is saying its the end of Playstation... Theres no double standard.



People said the end of Nintendo when Switch was announced after the tragic Wii U that is. Like how the power difference, launching the middle of the generation and price for a "handheld". Yet Switch and Nintendo proved them wrong.

It just shows how some people on the internet are just stupid.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

To add to what KLXVER was saying,

A certain manufacturer has a handheld division that looks like this:
119m/82m/155m/76m.

Yet, despite that, a lot of people were constantly ringing that "Doomed" bell.

In fairness, if a Sony console ever did sell 13.5 million, they might very well drop the brand.

Heck, it seems they did drop out of the handheld market.

Well the Switch is a hybrid console, so you could say that Nintendo has dropped out of the conventional console market. 



Maybe it's a double standard because it's two different people using each one?



What even is this post

Nintendos last handheld was released almost a decade ago. Nintendo left the traditional market they had it is. :)
