PS4 is a monster and PS5 has a chance to dethrone both PS4 and PS2!

No console will sell more than PS2. The PS2 sold so well due to the large number of third party exclusive games it had. If you wanted to play a game, even a third party game, you had no other option but PS2. Now third party exclusivity is very rare, when it happens it is timed exclusivity (usually 1 year). Also it was the cheapest dvd player on the market. But now streaming is becoming more popular than buying movies in Blu-ray.

PS2 was not the cheapest DVD player on market. When the PS2 launched in 2000 for $299, you could get a DVD player for $100-$150. By the time it dropped to $179 in 2003, you could get one for $50. No one bought the PS2 to play DVDs. They bought it to game on, and then bought DVDs because it also had that feature.



Between TLoU and TLoU2 Playstation actually sold more than 1 Billion games, lol.



My prediction for PS4 remains unchanged from past sales threads with a range of 115m-120m. This prediction includes the assumption of no price cuts from Sony, as I don't expect it this late.

At $299 in 2020, sales will drop hard to below 10m like ZhugeEx says. 9m until PS5 launch would put it at 115m, and at $299 in 2021 next to a $399 PS5, less than 5m sales is expected. This is good for a smooth transition into the PS5, but the PS4 sales will suffer.

$299 is not going to be the PS4's final price.  We'll at least get a cut to $249.

That would be more interesting if it happened, but so far there is no indication that it will happen.

PS2 sold 1.5B SW but was bought to play DVD that is a gold in VGC.

Now I want you to make the projection of how much SW PS will have sold between LoD1 and LoD2.

PS3 sell-through (2013 - End of Life) = 14.9m

So if PS4 only matches the PS3 in this period (2020 - End of Life) it reaches 120.9m in sales. But PS4 has outperformed the PS3 in every other time period, I don't see why it would suddenly stop now.

In terms of shipments PS3 managed 7m after the launch of the PS4. PS4 is forecast to hit 110m by march, so if it can then ship another 3m in April-November they then only have to match the PS3 in post-successor shipments to hit 120m.

Basically anything less than 120m seems extremely unlikely. It would have to perform worse than the PS3 in this period.

6.5 Billion then LoD alone will proceed to sell 7 Billion.
