I think it’s pretty safe to say that 2017 will officially be PS4’s peak year, but given how 2018 is still well ahead of every other year, it bodes very well for the console’s sales in it’s twilight years. If the rumors are true and PS5 isn’t launching until late 2020-ish, I can see PS4 having very respectable numbers in 2019 and 2020. Still looking at a 130 million + sold lifetime if PS5’s launch goes over well.

Ps4 is down from 2017 but up from 2016. Its only due to a successful year in 2017 that we see 2018 being down yet still the best selling console in 2018 with still amazing sale figures as we come to the end of ps4 life cycle.

Agreed. It’s awesome how even when it’s the most down YoY, it’s still seeing tremendous figures when compared to the competition. Amazing figures indeed.

Wow Switch is now the only console that's up year on year. It'll be interesting to see if that changes once the numbers come in for the rest of the year.

The Xbox One X launched one year ago, so that is why the Xbox One is now down year-on-year.

Oh that makes sense. I was wondering why it dropped all of the sudden.
