My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

Around the Network

Only when significant number of juicy AAA exclusives titles are released. Until there, no point in buying it, I don't play multiplats on consoles.

PS5 was announced? I seriously need to go back under my rock

Once it gets a good exclusive I'll pick one up.

Prolly not until after it's gen ends if I'm still able to. Sadly can't afford a $500 system with $60 games alongside my Switch atm.

Around the Network

Probably never, not enough exclusives on PS4 for me, and will be less on PS5. Besides, need a 10920X and an ampere GPU.

Once it gets a good exclusive I'll pick one up.

I don't think I'll buy it. Unless some very strong exclusive catches my attention. That haven't happened with PS4.

I will probably keep my PC for another gen.

First big, good Japanese exclusive and I’m there

Pre-Ordering ASAP

Will likely pick up 6 units Day 1 if possible.

We've been a PlayStation Family since PS2, everyone has used PlayStation as their Main Computing Hub. As the hardcore electronics geek of the family, I always supply them with the latest tech. Makes gift giving easy.

This year will be Switch Lite's for those interested, or $200 in Cash/Gift Cards. Next year will be a bit more expensive, but I have been saving.

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.
