I strongly doubt next year being great for the PS4..... unless they drop to $199 early on. But I guess it will be great when compared to the XB1.
I would be surprised if the PS4 does more than 16M next year without a price drop. Which isnt bad when you think of it.
So you are in agreement that the PS4 will still be solid next year lol. Doing over 16m in the 6th year on the market would be VERY good. But I am thinking 14-16m for the year. But a $199 pricedrop plus some nice 2019 titles. Yeah I am thinking the PS4 will have a solid 6th year. Easily passing the 100 million mark imo.
Again, 5 year argument is stupid. You don't sell less going over the years. It's one of if not the best PS4 numbers for that week and up from last year (which was its peak year.) Switch didn't peak yet and is up 130k from last year that week, while doing over 1 million every week of December and destroying the PS4.
Actually the 5 year argument IS NOT stupid by any means. Especially when pushing 90mil sold. It makes it just that much more impressive that it is still going so strongly. And actually you DO sell less going over the years lol. One of those years just happens to be a peak year. You can't keep selling more and more forever. Eventually you reach saturation and run out of customers. So no the 5yr argument is not stupid at all. Especially after staying the same price for so long.
I think his comment was un-called for but let's not pretend the 5yr argument is not valid. And that takes NOTHING away from the Switch which is also doing amazing. And will do even better next year!!! And as I stated to someone else. Being in its strongest month, still being the hottest/newest console on the market, coming off two of the biggest games in Nintendo history it SHOULD be destroying all everything else imo. I am again expecting BIG things for the Switch for Nov like well over 2million in the US alone!
15-17m is a good enough guess, especially considering the possibility of a slimmer PS4, The Last Of Us: Part II's release, and some form of price drop.
Yeah my thoughts as well.
Regardless of price cuts, major releases, revisions, etc 16 million is a great year for a consoles 6th year.
The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...
