Forums - Sales Discussion - Will Playstation 4 have more 10 million sellers than WII at the end of his lifetime?

Easily. Fifa 19, fifa 20 and fifa 21 will all do 10m+. Tlou2 and gow. Horizon too and a lot of other games if you include digital.



Around the Network

God of war will

Same for Spiderman

Same for RDR 2

Same for Cyberpunk if it releases on this génération

It should easily have 15 10 millon sellers



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

 

In my opinion, yes, PS4 could have more than 10 million sellers than the Wii.
God of War, FIFA 19 and Red dead redemption 2 are the firsts candidates to reach the milestone.
Spider-Man could. It got a strong name, a well-known software house, and could benefit the release of the film next year (Far form home) especially with price cut or an edition with the 3 DLC.
Than there will be The last of us Part II and FIFA 20.
Horizon Zero Dawn could do it too. It sold 7,6 M in one year and then i saw Sony put it at 20 bucks on PS Store or 30 with the DLC. It could have some chance.
I think even The last of us Remastered could reach the 10 million copies sold on PS4 (unless he has already reached them).



Funny that Wii was the first and so far only console (and DS) to have reached 10 10 million sellers. Right now it doesn’t really seem like it’s really a whole lot.

PS4 has a decent chance to surpass that.

But when you realize that the only reason PS4 will do it is because of two franchises that have yearly games that people buy over and over it makes a lot more sense. PS4 would only have two 10 million sellers right now 5 years into its life if it weren't for Fifa and CoD and we wouldn't be talking about PS4 getting near 10. PS4 will beat the Wii's ten 10 million sellers for the simple fact that two companies have figured out how to mass sell yearly updates to a user base, and its the first time that has happened in the video game industry, as those two yearly franchises will probably account for 6 to 8 of the PS4's 10 million sellers. Good on them for somehow doing that and not having gamers just be sick of the same game every year, that has never been accomplished before and those two franchises have made PS4 a powerhouse.

Next couple of FIFA games will be guaranteed to break it, as will the next couple of Call of Duty games. Add in Red Dead Redemption 2, The Last of Us Part 2 and God of War are games we know of with a PS4 release that are pretty much guaranteed to break it.

That's at least 7 more. In reality though, if you include digital the PS4 probably has 11 or 12 there already. Maybe more.

This isn't really new to the current generation. Check out the 360's and PS3's top sellers.

Looking at those lists, I wouldn't actually be surprised to see the 360 hit 11x 10 Million sellers with adjustments/ legacy sales.

I mean I wouldn't really say it is a first time in history. I love Nintendo but heck they have been doing this with Pokemon since 1996 for example. Now THAT is INSANE because the games have not evolved THAT much since 1996 yet we STILL but them lol well I do because I am a Pokemon fan. Granted not yearly but still crazy none the less lol. And I ama lso pretty sure the COD/FIFA sales were pretty similar in the 360/PS4 generation at least I think so anyway..
