Awesome chart!

Would it be possible to ask for week numbering?




Still doing 200k a week so it still going rather well. I expect May and July to be the slowest months for PS4 this year. Since Crash and Wipeout will no doubt convince some people to buy a PS4 for Nostalgia. They should make a retro bundle with those games.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Price cut + AAA game releases will push the PS4 to 18+ million sales for this year and its highest sales year. I would not be surprised if PS4 reaches a peak of 20 million either this year or next year.



More consumers will jump on board the PS4 train and buy more PS4s over the next 2 or 3 years before the PS5 arrives in 2019 or 2020.

I'll see what I can do.

Considering Microsoft is going to release the Xone Scorpio this year and the PS4 is still selling like hotcakes 2020 or even 2021 seems more likely for the PS5 to arrive. Why should Sony discontinue a console early that is very profitable and sells like hotcakes for the PS5 while the competition (Xbox since Nintendo is doing it's own thing) can't release their next console so early without pissing of many people. My estimate is that the PS5 releases during holiday 2020 after the PS4 is done releasing most of the major games in 2019 and it's sales are slowing down. During 2019 and 2020 the Sony devs can start developing for PS5 and give that console a kickstart into the new gen alongside the X2.
