Forums - Sony Discussion - PS4/XBO/NS - 2017 vs. 2018: Final Results!!!

This will be interesting. Thank you for this thread!

Around the Network

You're welcome!

2018 will be peak. Strongest exclusive games for casual gamers, like God of War and Spider-Man (this one would be huge, Uncharted 4's level). Also RDR2. And we finally will see Death Stranding' and Last of Us 2's gameplay - huge hype, big sells.

PS: sorry for my poor grammar

Boom. 2017 not peak year confirmed.

With the amount of people saying this will be the peak year I am becoming doubtful of my prediction. If for nothing else but that the PS4 so far this gen has always done the unexpected. Looking at you november and december 2017.

I will say up, inmenent price cut for both th standard and pro plus all the games coming this year.

It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

A great thread, this. Really interesting to see the 2015/16/17 battle and this may just top it, so thank you OP.

I didn't think 2018 was going to be its peak year. However, this was before the 2017 Holiday performance came fully into view. There's definitely potential there. The way I see it is it could go either way, I think 2018 will be absolute minimum of 18.5M with the shape of releases this year, so it won't drop much, if it does.

However, there's definite scope for a relatively bigger increase. I thought 2017 was on for 21M, nigh-on 22M. I still think that's achievable in 2018. The games are there, the missed holiday potential from 2017 is there for 2018. However, it's looking like a staged price drop leads to matching the potential, culminating in a $199 for the entirety of the 2018 Holiday period. There's a far better chance for Sony to feel comfortable with that price for more than just Black Friday and consumers haven't been exposed to it for a sufficient time that it wouldn't bump sales up. Hell, their Black Friday price might just be lower than it was this year, if they make $199 permanent.

Like I say, very easily possible for it to go both ways, but based on the first week, I'm going to be optimistic and say 2018 will be the peak.

I don’t think the PS4 will sell as much this year, I think the decline in sales will start, it’s sold like crazy up to now and I just reckon that it’s going to start slowing. I understand it’s +5000 in FW but it’s early days

I thoroughly believe 2018 has the potential to be the peak year. This year already offers several exclusives and third party titles that are likely to have a much bigger impact on sales, especially if this years CoD is the rumored Black Ops 4. Games like God of War and Spider-Man are guaranteed to be massive sellers, while games like RDR speak for themselves.
