Games industry analyst Michael Pachter discussed in confident that Sony's sales target of 5 million PS4 consoles sold by March 2014 is likely to be achieved.
pachter is one of the biggest pricks in the media bar none I remember a couple months ago him saying ps4 will get nowhere near xbone sale's and Microsoft are set to dominate with the xbone
The guy is a pitiful shill who knows nothing about the industry. I wouldn't hold his words to any high degree.
LOL When did he say that? He's been touting higher sales for the PS4 since E3. He's been pretty consistent in saying the PS4 will have a 30% lead in sales throughout 2014, and doesn't see MS starting to catchup until significant price drops are put in place.
Y'all may make fun of him but I think he has it right this time around. 5-6 million is my guess.
this guy is a moron, no need to be analyst to predict BS, especially the most obvious thing. You know what guys, PS4 will be released on 11.14.13, it's an analyst saying this. And Sony will release a PS4 slim in 3 years. smh..
OK Abzdine, when you have years worth of collated market data to back up the crap you say and can present it in a format that's meaningful and valuable to industry leaders and investors, you go ahead and say what you like about his job.
@theBAWSE, pachter is one of the biggest pricks in the media bar none. I'd take what he says over Major Nelson any day.
@LightofDarkness I agree,people are hating on him for some of his comments,but the guy is just doing his speculations on info he gets and changes his views when things change. I like his class attitude,he doesn't seem as the bad guy that lots of people here claim he is.
What the hell are you reading? Since E3, Pachter has been talking about the PS4 kicking the crap out of the XB1 over the next year. You may not like the guy and I definitely don't agree with everything he says all of the time, but get your facts straight. If you can show something different, please link to the source.
If 5 million are sold by march Sony will dominate
easily achievable. already 1.5 and close to 2 mill pre-orders
In these economic times it is outstanding. I just hope the industry stays healthy altogether.
by march ps4 will be 5 mil & x1 5mil only if titian fall is big hit if not 4 mil..
5 mil : 3 mil no matter if titan fall is a hit or not. That's not a system seller.
i bet money titian fall is a system seller if pplz hype the game up like every rush cod/bf game
I love how 9/10 times when this guy opens his mouth it's rubbish and people rant but its OK when he makes useless presumptions on most peoples thoughts.
They'll sell as many as they can build. I imagine they'll be out of stock well into next year.
I reckon 5 mil for ps4 and only 1.8mil for xb1. I say that because xb1 is launching in less countries and if polls are correct, ps4 is winning pre-orders 2/1
its not hard to look at fan reactions & pre order numbers to figure this all out.. He thought M$ was going to have a better console before they were shown & he changed his mind real quick lol..
I'm more inclined to believe that next gen systems sales are going to drop drastically after their initial release. Most of the people that pre-ordered are most likely longtime fans. There's not really much incentive for your average video game player to pick them up. I mean, over half of "next-gen" games are coming out for current gen as well.
