A lot of people were in the understanding that the PS4 was going to have a PS2 longevity, I assume.

And you can't blade them.

If sony wanted they could do it.. however they didn't.

Anyone know what the original percentage for "Never" was?
It's at 52.48% now, but I'm sure it used to be much higher and is dropping as more and more people realize it's happening.

I tracked them over ~3-months periods since January last year:

Next check of the evolution of the people who think never:

January 66.66% Change:
March 64.88% -1.78
June 65.12% +0.24
September 63.68% -1.44
November 62.22% -1.46

So yeah the trend is clear here, more and more people believe that the Switch can do it.

Pretty sure that if this would have been made today, the vast majority would say that the Switch would outsell the PS4.

This reminds me, time to update the table again:

January 66.66% Change:
March 64.88% -1.78
June 65.12% +0.24
September 63.68% -1.44
November 62.22% -1.46
March 52.30% -9.92

Huge jump now, looks like those who think Switch won't make it are a very clear minority now.

While I always thought Switch would outsell the PS4, I also thought the PS4 would sell closer to 130m.  I find their lack of price cuts...disturbing.



I too wasnt expecting the PS4 to stop suddenly after the PS5 released. This just makes it sooo much easier for the Switch. Seems like many of Switch polls where majority were wrong for good reasons.

No, the PS4 has not stopped yet. It is called "Fall off a Cliff"



With another thread created, we may as well lock this one.
