Hence no PS4 price cut.

Sony is like..... "god bless (europe)" :P



If only Sony would drop the RRP below $299... It's almost 6 years old for goodness sake! Remarkable that it's close to Switch still now, but when the $199 Lite drops it's going to get demolished.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

We should start a betting thread on week to week who wins in a Japan head to head between Vita and Xbox One. Haha

The ultimate answear to the question of Life, the universe, and the meaning of everything (it all) ("42")

vs

... 106! ..... a rather boring number.

42 is the "real" winner :)   (if we go by the words of Douglas Adams)



I think Sony should announce $249 PS4 Slim and $349 PS4 Pro on Gamescom, it's about time... and they will have a chance to outsell the Switch weekly again.

They should but judging by their 15m shipment forecast, they're not going to.

Am I allowed to be happy with how PS4 is holding up against Switch (Six years on the market vs two), or will that upset people again? :o

Be happy !

It would outsell Switch for a few weeks until the Lite releases then get overtaken again. But at this point Sony is more concerned about profits rather than "winning" weekly sales against a device that is coexists very well with. Switch is not stealinf PS4 sales to any notable degree and vice versa.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

You are most likely right, though it would still be good for consumers looking to buy a PS4 in 2019 and 2020, and it would make PS4 sales closer to Switch after Lite comes out.
