Hello everyone, here is the DAMA profile for the PS5 this month.
Obviously short stock had a big impact on this report, but it is still interesting to analyze:
Some key Highlights:
1)PS5 officially passed the Atari 7800 lifetime sales, the next target is the Dreamcast with 8.2M (it took the PS4 7 months to reach 8.2M).
2) The PS5 is only behind the 3DS and the NS on the first ever Holiday of each console.
3) The PS5 currently has a gap advantage of 457K units over the PS4
4) 5 Consoles had a better first December than the PS5. This shows the impact that stock had this launch for the PS5.
5) The record for best first January is 1.3M by the Wii. PS5 should be able to ship more than this.
Here is a graph of the first holiday season for all available consoles:
Bonus question: Will PS5 be able to sell more than the Wii on January (1.3M)?.
Here is the first big sign of the sales power of the PS5. Up to now it is selling everything it ships, so if it is able to produce at least 300k units each week, then 1.2M should be well within its range of possibilities. This can be a photo finish.
