You know that you’re a forum that follows video game sales, right? You can’t fool us with the “it’s on sales for $250 regularly” line.

Indeed, its official 299 so its299 , because its sonetimes cheaper and or bundled doesnt matter.

I can't agree. The actual price at retail affects the number of units sold.  The official price is the one that doesn't matter.  And, I'm not trying to "fool" anyone.  I'm contributing to the discussion, and pointing out the stone cold fact that many units are sold for less then $299, and many that do sell at the "official" price are bundled with a game.  

It was on sale for the whole xmas season at $199.  It is on sale at Target for $279 just about every other week.  It is on sale at various places at $250 pretty often.  Most units sold are now bundled with a game.  These things significantly impact the value proposition, which in turn significantly impacts sales.  If you want to ignore this stuff, that's fine.  Just know that you're deliberately ignoring relevant facts that affect the sales of PS4, and will continue to have an impact going forward.  



Around the Network

Are we basing this when the PS5 comes out, or when the PS4 is discontinued?
If we're basing sales on the PS5 release, which will be either 2020 or 2021 - it's sales will probably be around 105/110 Million units

Life time sales when it'll be discontinued will probably be around 120/125 Million units.

The President of PlayStation Japan said that they won't release the PS5 until 4K TV ownership reaches appropriate levels.



Also, thinking that there will be PS5 news at E3 this year is nonsense. The PS4 wasn't even announced at an E3 event  you guys.....

Where and when was it on sale for the whole Christmas season for $199? Because that is just an out right lie.....no disrespect. And what places is it on sale at $250 "pretty often"? It does have sales but not at the rate you are making it seem.

Ya you'r clearly making stuff up. It was $199 for a single week, not the whole Xmas season and no it is not on sale for $250 nearly as much as you are claiming.

The Only system that is at constantly on sale is the xbox one, $249.99 for the 1tb models this week and mostly all weeks you see a lot of deals on eBay. For most January the 500 Gb model was at $189.

As far as other mentioned the $199 price was only for one week and at the end only lasted for nearly 4 weeks before went sold out.

1) BS by far the most units in 2018 have been 299$.
2) that was like 6-7days... wtf? and it sold out before the deal even ended most places. That is a straight up lie, no 2 ways about it.

You know whats been cheap for most of 2018? the Xbox One... its been 229$ for like 1month+ out of the first 3 months in 2018.
And its normal price is 249$ + game bundled.
Compaired with most often 299$ PS4 thats a ~70$ difference in price.

Im calling BS on PS4 regulary being on sale for lower than 299$ this year, thats simply not true.



It's possible if PS4 continues to sell well after the PS5 comes out or if the PS5 doesn't launch until the early 2020s.

Yes, XB1 is on sale more often that PS4.  How is that relevant to this conversation?  It appears that the fanboyism is so strong on here that people are just looking for a way to peg anyone that disagrees with them as a fan of the other system.  But, the reality is that I'm staring at my DS4, waiting to finish my work so I can go pick up my copy of Far Cry 5 to bring home and play on my PS4 Pro.  

And, yes, it is obvious to me that I as wrong about the length of the $199 sale.  So, I'll eat that one.  I think I was mixing it up with the PSVR sale, where the Doom package was on sale for $199 for a few weeks during the xmas season.

Where did someone do that? I think I must have missed it. And doing stuff like that is not cool at all.
