Forums - Sales Discussion - PS4, ~5mi in EU, 150% Wii number! how and why?

Well guys, Sony finally gave us a milestone that we wanted.

We know have very accurated number for USA and Japan, and I assume that VGChartz has already adjusted its number from NPD´s and Famitsu´s.

VGC shows PS4 at 3,8mi in the USA in week ending July 26 and  650K for Japan. Again, I hope those numbers are adjusted.

So, we have more than 5mi units left to reach the 10mi mark. Even if Sony sold 500k units this last two weeks there is about 4,5mi units left for EU and rest of the world.

A look at VGC at 12th August shows the Wii at 10,7 mi total but only 2,8 mi for EU, USA is basicaly tied with the PS4, but Japan makes out the differece with 3,3mi for the Wii.

Do we have any explanation on why PS4 is doing so great in EU? Or I messed up and this difference cames from "rest of the world" numbers?

EU <3s Playstation


PS4 is monster.

By end of gen i expect 65,000,000 or 70,000,000 of PS4, ONLY IN EUROPE.

Europe could be at 5m or much lower, and sales in the rest of the world could be much higher. So sales could be coming from countries like Asia, South America, and also Canada and Australia. Some of those places are hard to track.

^ I can guarantee you that South America sales are low. Or at least from all I know.

Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

Interesting find. Let's see if PS4 can keep it up throughout next year. Its base should rise after this holiday.
