So the PS4 is heading to beat both X360 and PS3 last gen... can it take out the Wii's 101m units before the end of the generation? Really great stuff from Sony this gen.

Interesting question, Ganon. It won't have any trouble beating the Wii. Should sell between 120m and 130m.

Yeah because companies like to discontinue consoles that sell 16-18 million units a year. Nit financiao suicide at all. Consoles aren't discontinued because of hardware advancements bur because of declining sales. This is a sales site for fuck sake out of all people this community should get that. Why else would the 3DS still sell and be in production. The next Playstation starts 2020 at the earliest.

I could easily see the ps4 supported for at least another 4 years with the games coming for it now there is no real need of a replacement system for the foreseeable future, sure the base model can't do 4k but as we've seen, 4k isn't mainstream enough yet to focus their main console at that 4k audience, heck the Wii was the best seller last gen... and that machine was fully rooted in SD resolutions for the whole 101 million sales of it.

Can this beat the seventh gen consoles?

Which one: PSP, PS3 and X360 defenitly, Wii: 10% chance if not happening. DS: 90% of not happening.

Amazing info! The most and the best Games 2017/2018 on PS4. Maybe more than 72 million PS4s (end of december 2017) are possible.


Qwark (on 01 August 2017)

Seems like the 75 million shipping mark by December the 31st is managable if Sony keeps 2.5 million units in the stores. So it could ship 78 million by March 2018. All in all impressive numbers. Perhaps 80 million by March 2018 is possible if Sony lowers the price of the PS4 and the pro during the holidays.
