I think there is a very good chance of PS4 selling more in 2018. Looking at what is coming already, and the possabilities of price cuts to PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro, I can see Sony shipping 25 Million units in CY2018.
However, I believe 2019 will be the peak. We know for sure that a PS4 Super Slim is coming, and it should launch for $149.99. There should also be a PS4 Pro Slim for $249.99. Then we have the wild cards, PS4 Premium, PS4 Portable, PS4 Phone, PSVR Pro.
I believe 2019 will end up being the first year, with major 3rd party AAA PSVR support. With PS4 Super Slim + PSVR $199.99, Sales will be absolutely insane regaurdless of Premium, Portable, Phone. I think Sony could break the 30 Million shipped mark in 2019.
Outside of gaming, I believe the PS4 Super Slim will come in a Digital Only form factor with 500GB of Flash. With no Blu-ray Drive and no HDD, the thing will be roughly the size of Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and Roku boxes. I also think they will put HDMI 2.1 in it allowing for 4K HDR video content. This will be combined with 4K HDR TV using Hybrid Log Gamma on PlayStation Vue, and a huge push in the Set Top Box market. This could even turn into a thing where they offer PS4 SS for free with 3 months of PS Vue, or at a substantial discount.
This is just based on what we already know. We still have 2 years worth the trade shows, and partenerships. The more the PS4 sells, the more 3rd parties, gaming or otherwise are going to want to be on the platform.It is going to be an awesome ride.
Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
