Forums - Sales Discussion - PS5 120 million units to be shipped within 5 years, according to supply chain source.

I don't see why this coming from a supply chain gives it any sort of credibility. Maybe this was taken out of context, and it was simply saying that Sony has the capacity to manufacture that many units in 5 years with the current supply chain, but not that they will necessarily be running at max output that whole time. But even this seems odd, as 5 years is way too large of a timeframe for relevancy. I'd rather know what they are capable of manufacturing in fiscal year 2020 and 2021, as beyond that, things can change, and if enough demand is there, Sony could push for a larger supply chain.

Sony sold 9.2 million PS4s in Japan compared to 23.2 million PS2s.

Do these sources really think the largest PS ever will be "big in Japan"? Because for such an estimation to come true you’d need Japan.



PS5 $299 confirmed.



What a load of shit. We don't have a price yet. It's way too early for this shit. Hell Switch 2 will ship 200 million in 3 years! See anyone can do it.

Tagging this prediction for latter.

Uh, yes. I assume that there were enough PS4 consoles at launch.

The PS2 in Japan was 19,900 Yen by year 3, the PS4, like the PS3 never approached those prices.  If the PS4 retailed for 19,900 Yen in 2017, do you think sales would be higher?

This site always underestimate the power of PlayStation. PS4 is just the warm-up to what is dropping in November. Nobody expected PS2 and PS4 to dominate like that, yet here we are.

Everyone expected PS2 to do well. It just came off the PS1. It had momentum.PS4 was clearly going to do well after the Wii U and XBO blunders. Stop acting like PS is some underdog.

Depending on the price, sure. Since they are a suplyer I guess they have an inside on the price. If it's at least the price of the ps4 $400 I see no problem in it reaching 120m.

Waaaaaaay to early to be making these precise kinds of estimates. Who knows what the environment will be like next year, let alone 5.

There are multiple metrics to estimate demand even now.

1.google trends

2.pre-orders on the internet

Sony is a professional company that successfully delivered play station consoles, without shortages. They are already paying the supplier for a 120-170m units to be produced in the 5 years frame, so the supplier can have the kits in time.  So, they believe PS5 selling within that range in  5 years is  possible inside Sony Headquarters.

I mean, I guess everything is possible under the sun, but predicting how the market is going to react in 2025 based on Google trends and pre-orders from 2020 is... a little bit bold.
