Confident it'll pass both Wii and PS1

This just shows how BORING games and gamers in general have become over the years lol. Ahhh the golden, good ol days are simply gone now. I remember on PS1 (pretty much the final "classic" era as far as I'm concerned) the top 10 consisted of Gran Turismo, Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3 and Crash Bandicoot...Resident Evil 2 and Tomb Raider weren't far behind. Now, we got FIFA and Call of Duty taking over the entire list....and a GTA game always sitting far at the top. Still, cool to see an Uncharted game on the list almost cracking the top 5.

Well deserved. The PS4 is legendary.

Congratulations. Now to reach the PS1/Wii, it will probably do in a year or two if there's no surprise announcement. The real question is whether is going to be surpassing the Game Boy before the PS5 comes out or not.


bamf (on 09 December 2018)

Ps3 definitely before the year ends. Then wii in 2019. Could it do ps1 on 2020? Ps4 hasn't needed price cuts but if ps4 mini came out with a price cut that will easily sell tens of millions even with ps5 launching. Surpassing ps2 I'm not sure? I think everyone on the planet now owns gta v 😂 hate when games that are bundled with consoles get accounted as sale figures as they aren't independently bought. Did this with wii sports


Masked_Muchaco (on 08 December 2018)

Wii is next


bennebaus (on 08 December 2018)

Vgchartz sales numbers have been wrong so many times , I highly doubt it beat xbox 360 sales just yet. I think it will by early next year though
