I think it's safe to say MHW gave a significant boost over three weeks. 

Mainly because of Japan though. It's effect lasted approx. a month there. It did have some effect here but not as much like Japan.

It’s crazy how much people want to buy a PS4 this week. I read it everywhere. 

It's not exactly a great gauge to judge how many people would actually do it though.

And that's not even counting people who are just switching from the base model/slim to Pro.

Though, expecting a substantial increase is definitely in the realm of possibilities.

I'm still expecting both GoW and Spider-Man to sell a million+ of PS4s and Pros each over time!

I think'll hit over 350k for two weeks. That's about 100-130k boosted and I think it'll have an impact that we don't notice in the weeks after. With so many games coming, I don't think the ps4 is going to be getting in anyway slow, even in going into it's fifth year.



 

China Numba wan!!

Sounds about right to me, a small modest boost of ~150k (week1) ish boost, followed by a  smaller boost week2.
Thats what Im expecting too.

If it does over 400k the week of release consider me surprised.



I think something that looks as good as GoW, more are getting the pro to enjoy the full experience.



 

It will surely keep the PS4 above 200k for a while. Hopefully until Detroit launches. But I doubt it's going to sell much more than 300k at launch. On the other hand this probably will mean that Sony sells close to a million PS4 units in April. Putting the grand total close to 5 million for 2018 after as of May the first. If the PS4 isn't overtracked as I kind of suspect, given the low shipment forecast.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

The boost will be longer rather than bigger

Just like the last of us. A lot of people over a 2 year period would have bought a ps3 or ps4 to play tlou. Same will happen here. 

Yes, thats true!

+Original vanilla PS4 owners upgrading to the PRO model.
+Friends/Family recommending PS4
+Press and the amazing popularity of PS4

God of War has got a hot streak going right now for the PS4. The sales are booming, with people eagerly anticipating on playing this game. It will do over 400k I predict.

400k is high (without japan), but possible :)

Possible. I have a good feeling it’s going to push a lot of units in the US and EU.

thats interesting, because In America and UK-the game was already sold out in some stores.

what does the ps4-market in china (or south korea) actually look like? I think games with "weapons/blood" may not appear there - or i'am wrong? i dont know.
