I don't even know where you can buy a new one here, I had to get mine used.



Xbox One up, everything else down :O



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

It's commencing its slow ascent to the top.

3DS doing great considering its age, Xbox One is having a decent run since the launch of the Xbox One X, Switch is impressive by outselling Vita + 3DS + Xbox One combined, PS4 performance suggests that its wheels are beginning to fall off.

At this point in time I don't think there are too many people who are gamers left to buy a PS4. But we'll see come GOW release.

The fact that PS4 is on par in the NA with the competition leads me to believe GOW is gonna do gangbusters for sales. GOW has a good following in NA and this installment looks to be a milestone in the series.

PS2+XB & PS3+360 sold ~180 million.

PS4+XBO are currently ~115 million so about 2/3 of their predeccessors.

Yup, but even without those numbers, the logic of many people already owning a console reducing sales just doesn't work for whatever reason. That's why new games always boost sales, even when you'd think everyone wanting it would have the system already.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

Ps4's wheels are falling off? Interesting proposal, what do you expect it's sales to be this year?

I for one expect it to be pretty close to its peak year.

Ticking my prediction from 267,000 per week to 275,000 per week PS4 needs in order to reach 80 million by June. Obviously unknown how weekly numbers will fluctuate between God of War launch week and Detroit launch week. But if it can't reach 80 million before Summer officially is here then it'll surely reach it before Summer is over. Also is see 80 million milestone along with and E3 price drop announcement. $249 PS4. $349 PS4 pro.
