Forums - Sony Discussion - Japanese analyst: PS5 could sell 200-300m in 5 to 6 years

His statement is actually pretty vague... Is he talking about 5-6 years on Mars, Jupiter...? Because, if it's Jupiter years, then I'd say PS5 can easily surpass 300m over that period of time, if it gets continued support and no new consoles are released in the meantime (also, if the industry has not stagnated and collapsed due to the lack of new consoles in such amount of time). But if he's talking about Mars years, then I think it's a bit of a stretch. So, yeah, I need a little more clarification before I can give a better opinion.

He's in for a shock.



And I could win the lottery tomorrow...



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

This guy sounds like a colossal PS fanboy honestly, kind of sad that he is somehow employed as a gaming market analyst when he has a prediction that is way worse than any prediction that Pachter has ever made, and we all know how big of a joke Pachter is.

The eSports market has mainly moved to PC now, with the main exception being fighting games, and there certainly isn't enough of a fighting game market to move hundreds of millions of additional consoles. The chances of taking eSports gamers back from PC are slim imo.

Well Xbox leadership expected X1 TV TV TV to sell 1 Billion. So this guy seems reasonable in comparison.

He should be fired when year 1 PS5 sales aren’t to his projections



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 

 

You gonna dream then dream big!

Xbox guy wasn't fired when his 1 Billion prediction wasn't achieved.

Main reason why Japanese big third party games still ignore the switch despite the gigantic market share.

The executives and analysts live in delulu land.

I'm pretty sure Pachter is fully meeting his projections... Clickbait projections, his real job here.
(why you don't see normal financial analysis like stock price forecast along with this bait)
