Forums - Sony Discussion - Predict PS4's Black Friday Week Sales!

Being so close to the launch of RDR2 and the hype surrounding that could give a very nice boost the this year's PS4 black friday sales as well :O



Predicted 15+ million lifetime-sales for God of War:

It all depends on stock really but since Sony only expects to ship 17.5 mill in FY 2018, I'll go with 1.4 mill for global Black Friday week.



Spider-Man does whatever a spider can. Can a spider sell 2M+ consoles during a sales event? Stay tuned 4 more!



Stay level. Switch actually enters the black Friday arena this year. It will be up YoY eating up growth for both of it's competitors.



Depends on stock, as others have said. Sony will sell whatever they ship. I would love to see more than last year, but their forecast doesn't make that look very promising.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

I would like to think that with Spider a Man and RDR2 bundles, Sony should easily sell around 1.8 million this Black Friday.

Considering they’ll have enough stock, Spidey will help them to beat last year imho.

My estimate would be 1.35 million, the PS4 faces more competition this year.

Competition how? And how has said competition affected the PS4 sales all year round? The PS4 has still managed to win almost every single week in 2018 even with that competition you speak of.

I'm not sure there is that much demand for ps4s 

So you really believe there aren't 2.5 people willing to buy the PS4 at $199 plus a free game? More power to you I guess.

Switch was also in the black friday arena last year. It has also been in the global arena all of 2018. And has only won globally 3 or so times in all of the weeks of 2018 so far ( and thats even arguable due to adjustments) so I really don't know or see what metric anyone will use to somehow suggest that a console that has managed to win all year so far will suddenly lose when its at its cheapest and with a free game.

 

Anyways to OP, as many have said already this is a stock matter. I am going to go with 1.5M. But if sony has enough stock I don't see 2M being unattainable.

PS4 has been down YoY and from the NPD tracking thread thus far, it's very clear Pokemon, anticipation for smash and actual bf deals are going to be a big factor this year for the Switch. I fully expect ps4 to beat the Switch on the day though. I just don't expect growth.



I predict that it will sell significantly higher than the week before.
