Forums - Sony Discussion - Has Sony shipped 90 million PS4's + 1 billion games?

I still remember 2013 before their reveal when everyone seemed to think this was the gen PlayStation would start fading as Xbox took over. Still awesome to see them recover from last gen so incredibly

Considering PS3 oustold 360 consecutively since 2009, I definitely don't see why anyone would have thought that at the time.



My prognosis: ca. 910 - 935 Million, now.

So you held your eyes closed... there were people saying sony would be bankrupt and MS with their infinite money would dominate this gen, PS4 would end below WiiU.

A select few said that, not "everyone" like he claimed. Stop taking the statements of the vocal minority and pretending like that's the general consensus.

from selected few to "never seeing" is quite the difference.

That's where context is important.

He said: When everyone seemed to think

I said: that never happened

I didnt say "nobody said that", I disputed his claim that it was everyone (or even most for that matter).

The PS4 is easily past 90 Million consoles shipped, likely sold the majority of that. The$200 PS4 Slim 1TB Spiderman Bundle was the hottest item for the week of Black Friday. For games I would say 50-80 million more games sold since June is more believable. I mean they have had Spiderman, Red Dead Redemption 2,COD BLOPS 4, etc can easily jump that hurdle.
