it should at least have over 2 millions now globally

Probably 4millions

20 millions ÷ 5 = 4 millions.

Youre right but snt it 6 million with 30% adoption rate?

Good... so in Japan it's 25% adoption rate for Pro versus the 20% WW we had Sony saying some months ago...

So have WW risen to the same 25% or still around 20%?

Wasn't the 20% only in the US or am I mistaken?

From what I remember from Sony PR it was WW, but sure I could be mistaken

Doesn't seem to limit to USA or UK.

Probably risen to 25% or more, the PS4 Pro was sold in Japan for a lot of months and it was more marketed towards the West

Demand for the super charged version of the PlayStation 4 has not been exceptional in the country, with it accounting for 8.85% of the total PS4 units sold.  It certainly remains a niche product, even if the current Holiday season, combined with the coming of Monster Hunter World in January and the performance of the game’s own limited edition console seem to have persuaded more Japanese users to opt for the more powerful (and more expensive) solution.

This accounts for every PS4 sold even before Pro came out. Not to be confused with the % of Pro's sold since it launched, which is probably around 20-25%.

The Switch will outsell both the PS4 and Vita combined in a few years or less in Japan.

It is a nice probability that may make sony incentivize more pro support

Topic is not about your beloved Switch.

The Pro is doing great! You guys think Sony will upgrade the Pro as well, Ultra PS4 os something lol or is it time for PS5 soon?
