I can do that.
The PS4 has as of March managed to make 2017 its best year so far, selling more in the first seven months of the year than it did in the first eight months of the year in the previous three years. To keep that lead going into the holidays, it will need to sell at least 807k in the Aug.-Oct. period, an average of 269k per month. It's certainly possible, with Uncharted: Lost Legacy, Destiny 2, and GT Sport being some high-profile releases between now and Halloween that could help boost sales. Destiny 1 was a massive system-seller that gave the PS4 it's best non-holiday month to date, with a whopping 538k sold in Sept. 2014. Will Destiny 2 have anywhere near that hardware-pushing prowess?
Do you the source of the numbers. I ask because it seems odd that Q2 sales for 2017 would be so much higher than 2016. Sony noted that Q1 (Apr 1 - Jun 30) PS4 sales were down slightly. Looking at hardware spending, the % increase was marginal those months (least May) and the NPD analyst quoted Switch was the reason for the increase. Shouldn't there be a flattening, not this massive jump in June?
