I'm surprised the 3DS managed to sell another million in 2019, it's a shame it doesn't have enough push to reach the 80m.

I wonder how many of these consoles for PS4/Xbox One are replacement consoles or upgrades to Pro/One X.

  1. Probably a very low amount since the PS4 and Xone are among the best build consoles ever made.
  2. Since the PS4 pro launched around 20-25% of PS4 consoles sold are PS4 pro units. But I guess quite a few are upgrade consoles. Nevertheless many will sell their OG via e-bay or something when they upgrade. So I think the amount of people with multiple PS4 consoles is rather low.
