I don't know why, but I have a feeling that the PS3 will dominate the next 2 years.

 

It will sell many millions less in the next two years than the last two and will face the WiiU on the rise and the next box and perhaps even the PS4. 


That's what I meant.

Similar pattern when the PS2 was slowing down, Vita sales will eventually pick up and PS4 will bring that line up. Nothing to worry about.



2003, the year that never was.

Huh? Not remotely similar. Lol. As evidenced by the fact that shipments will set new decade (more actually) long lows.

its all so easy isn't. PSV will def pick up and PS4 will def be a success.

Yep. Price cut is coming for sure, probably early next year. Good lineup for the first half, just needs announcements for the second (which there is plenty of time for, and another Uncharted is a given) and it'll definitely do much better than this year. I am defining "much better" as 6-8 million units. 

PS4...? who knows. Those shipments still won't reach the heights of 2008, or even 2005. PS3 won't have the legs PS2 had and PS4 can't dominate next gen even if its the best system.

Going by the graph sales are only slightly below PS2's worst year (and before the release of the PSP), for a slowed down PS3, the PS2 (12 year old console), a dead PSP, and newly starting PSVita. 2013 could be a little lower, the PSP will probably be discontinued and sadly enough possibly the PS2, the PS3 will be selling less then 2012 or on par (with a price cut), and the PSVita will likely start picking up with a price cut as well and hopefully some killer games. PS4 should be announced in 2013 and then later release holiday 2013.



As for have we seen the best of the Playstation? the answer is an obvious no. Sony's never going to have another PS2.

FY 2013 without a PS4 it will be its worst year since 2000.  

The comparitive year in terms of gen cycles for FY 2012 (this year) is 2005.

Right and I don't completely disagree 2013 may be one of the slowest years for Sony.

Have we seen the best of Playstation as a brand?


I've said this many times; from roughly 96 to 06 the playstation didn't have much competition, sega insisted on shooting their own foot and nintendo never gained the momentum they had with the SNES.

But at this point the market is saturated with 3 strong brands. And amidst that competition the PS3 has been gaining market share quite rapidly in the last few years.

Your conclusion is actually irrelevant to your graf. The shipments are falling but the brand is recovering from the disastrous ps3 phat era.
