Pretty bad increase in hardware sales tbh...

Considering you had $250 ps4 slims, a pro version of the console, the VR launch, FF XV finally launching, and UNCHARTED 4 launching that year as well.... For there only to be a 100k increase says something....

Would not be surprised if the tablet market is eating into the console market as well..... Parents would rather buy kids a $99 tablet over a $250 inhome only console :S, just an assumption.

Holy demm some  are actually  trying  to  downplay  the massive  success  of the  ps4.

 

Just wow.

Can't expect anything else from a Nintendo fan.



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

Yeah, like I said I just remember the number and nothing else, wasn't sure if it was sold or shipped either lol :P

Was 55m sell-through. Most people called it a tame or realistic prediction.

Thread also got bumped in December after Sony's announcement of 50m. For some reason many people thought that put the prediction on track. Why didn't it come true? Probably because Black Friday has come to Europe, thus shifting sales from December to November.

That's the badger! 

Either way you look at it, the sales are still very impressive... 



Uncharted 4 will easily surpass 11m because there will a complete or definitive edition which will include the Lost Legacy.

Good job Sony. 110M is almost a given for PS4



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Don't be shocked. Some are always downplaying. As for PS4, it's the king.



Nice sales, what does that put it at for the entire year?

So it looks something like this

2013-4.2 million

2014-14.3 million, LTD-18.5 million

2015-17.4 million, 35.9 million

2016-17.5 million, 53.4 million

Is that correct?

You missed my edited post... Here it is:

17.5m...

35.9m as of  Jan 3rd 2016

53.4m as of Jan 1st 2017

( and it was 18.5m as of Jan 4th 2015, of which the 4.1m were from 2013 nov-dec, launch months )

So you're completely correct!

I think it sold 4.1m in nov-dec 2013, not 4.2m... lol Not that it makes any difference!
