PS4 should be well over 100 million units sold by this time next year, and should be over 1,000,000,000 games sold by then as well. Such a phenomenal success - that's why I don't think they'll be hard pressed to release PS5. I think Holidays 2020 would be the earliest they release it.

Game wise isnt it already past 880m ? That last 120m probably wont take another year to reach 1bn.

About what it hits 100m hw sold through.... hmm sometime next year, probably before holidays too.

I thought it was around 770 as of last report (september) - have they released additional numbers since?

Well, PS4 ahead in USA first week of November. That already goes very much against what Benji said.

Benji is not npd and he's already admitted his numbers could be well off. 

 

Ps4 dominating the global market by over 100k+ this week. This machine is a beast. 



Is Pokemon next week or the week after?

Next week.



I'm expecting switch to be 550-600k next week. Japan we already know is 200k, North America I think should be similar with 200k, Europe 150k, RoW 50k.

Japan is more or less 23% of the total market, but they are much more hysterical than other countries about Pokemon. If they have been for 30% of the sales this time during the PLG boost, this could make a nice 650.000+ worldwide

The first signs of Xmas season coming. Good sales overall, very good PS4 that increases its lead, both weekly and LTD.

And 2017 is behind 2018 again in total sales. Pretty bad numbers all around for the second week of november.

There will likely be adjustments, but even if there are not, remember that we are five years into the lives of two of these machines. November or not, they aren't going to continue to sell at those same rates.

Ultimately why I don't get the weight put behind his words. Without the data, he is simply guessing. He's been right before, sure, but he has also been wrong before. Others, like Zhuge, are my go-to people for numbers.
