We all know that the PS4 is going to sell really, really well – there’s no point recounting all the times the PS4 has sold out on Amazon, and the love for it all over the internet – but now we know just how well Sony hopes it will sell. - PSLS
it's end of fiscal year, means march 2014, but still, they aimed for, that's higher possibilities will reach beyond that..!!, i'd say 4-5 Million 2013..^^!!
will they even have that many ready to sell with sold out being the trend. If they add a vita too I say 7 million sold
I'm hoping to be one of those 5 million. I didn't get a chance to preorder but anyone know what my chances are to get one day 1? If I don't get one day 1 whats the worse case scenario? I gotta wait till 2014?
I think they'll sell a bit more than that. They'll probably sell 2-3 million in the first week.
So glad my PS4 preorder is paid off! in the mean time back to GTA V on the PS3.
Same here :)
It seems very plausible. The Wii U managed 3.45 million without that much advertising, and confusion with the original Wii. So for the PlayStation 4 to get 5 million isn't too much to ask for IMO.
I think that's doable. The PS3 launched in Nov as well in NA and Japan and saw 3.5 million by the end of March, without the Europe market and at higher price point. Given the $400 PS4 price tag I think they'll move 5 million considering it'll be launched in Europe and NA at the start and then in Japan come Feb.
Which kind of highlights the moot point of initial sales, when we are talking 5 million consoles for PS4 and previously 3.5 million for Wii U. To me then, it seems the Wii U did exceptionally well relatively speaking, but then just completely tapered off. All in all, it seems pretty low considered all the fangirl frenzy of 90% polls in favor of PS4 and so on.
Well pre orders are well over a million already.So.it shouldnt be hard to do it.
por xbox one, I'll use you as my door stoper. LOL
At $500, its one expensive door stop! Seriously though if one likes the Xbox One, can't stop them from getting one. Me though I preordered my PS4 since May, so prob get mine day one..
Strange Yosp just reacted, its end of fiscal year so march 2014.
hmmmm so this means they obviously have a solid plan to manufacture that many as well... impressive.
Definately possible and probably will happen.
Lol at the immediate dislike. We have some PS4 haters (secretly lovers) here!
Fiscal or Calendar? Any confirmation on that? Sorry don't feel like reading the article!
Fiscal. It's in the title.
We've gotten to the point where even reading the title properly is too hard.
I'm damn sure they will meet their goal! I will be helping them meet their goal! Go Playstation Go! Nothing can stop now but yourselves so tread carefully.
I'm damn positive the PS4 will reach it's mark. If the PS4 does reach its sales mark, it'll really put the Wii u to shame - which would probably have a little more than 4 million by that time frame judging by its current sales rate. I wonder how X1 will fare.
have u factored in wii u holiday sales? i know the wii u isnt doing good but it should have a nice boast during the holiday but how big, who knows? Plus they have a few games coming around the holidays that people may want.
I'll probably buy one when Infamous Second Son comes out.
Which arrives in February, one month before the end of the fiscal year.
I can see it now. Honestly, since we see the demand, it seems pretty reasonable. Since it will launch in a large majority of the world before march ends. i would say yes.
Wow if demand is really THAT high, amd the pre-orders are a large part of it, then that means that the PS4 will have sold almost double the amount of Wii U's. Time for Iwata to wake the hell up. The man blew his first year advantage.
Anyone else hating the translator right now translating TGS? lol
Um will you meet the demand though ? That's my question, selling it is no problem, it's the supply/demand.
Given the territories the respective consoles are launching in and with ps4 obviously going to take the early lead, I believe this will only continue as strength breeds strength. I see ps4 selling 10 million before Christmas next year while Xbone sells 6 to 7 million.
I can see that happening. I actually was more liberal. 15 million ps3's by next christmas 8-10 million XBone
Possible. 15 is an awful lot but for the 1st year, thats more like the numbers a console sells in its absolute prime. And 8 to 10 would actually be stellar sales for the Xbone given to uphill battle it has. I dont think they can do that. I think we have the ratios pretty close though. PS, that disagree, wasnt me.
Highly doubt that
