Poli Games talks about how Sony has sold more then 25 million units worldwide! What this means for Sony and the industry.
Congrats to Sony for such an amazing sales.
The ps4 will definitely sell more than 120 million units by the way its selling and how popular it is.
It will almost certainly sell 50billion. I predict it will replace the common brick as the favoured material for constructing houses. We'll need to adjust the 3 little piggies tale though. Straw house - blown down Stick house - blown down Brick house - stayed up PS4 house - Big Bad Wolf plays Bloodborne and Rocket League whilst eating bacon sarnies.
it was inevitable phenomenon the success of PS4 ...the course started even from PS3 but it was difficult to notice and struggled hard against the dude-bro-westernization of every game genre (which was heavily forced by competition) ...now with solid sales just trumps competition an it sets its own rules (the ones we all expected buying back then a PS3)
@volkama Bacon cernies...ah, ah...see what I did there? Mark Cerny, the ps4 architect? Ah? Ah? I'll show myself out.
They're going to dominate nonstop at least until PS5/XB2 come out.
PS4 is really "The Renaissance Console" designed by Mark "The Renaissance Man" Cerny Its nice to know that another Xbox hardcore fan (the guy in this video) returns to the PlayStation by his own testimony and is really happy about his decision. He also believes the PS4 will outsell the PS2. WOW! Since February 20, 2013 I told you guys the PlaySaviour 4 will revolutionize the video gaming industry. Positivity, Productivity, Progress, Peace and Prosperity
I think 35m shipped before 2016 might be possible.
With MGSV/Fallout 4/Just Cause 3/Hitman/COD BO3/Star Wars/Until Dawn... It's pretty much confirmed.
They're up YoY and will have the marketing for COD and AC (swung from Xbox last year in DLC and marketing). They also have several solid exclusives such as Until Dawn, Tearaway, Uncharted Collection, and several downloadable titles. Not to mention much stronger Japan lineup this year and this Fall to boost what is now their weakest major market (only because of overall console decline there). They'll most definitely get another 10m consoles out when you consider that even if they don't do a price cut they'll have cheaper bundles this year.
Improving the gaming market one console at a time! Each of those 25 million consoles sold wishin the past two and a half years are all gamers that knew where the best place to game is. We are in the golden era of this gen for those with this console. Games all year long, first AND third party support, new gaming features (remote play, share play). The list of reasons goes on.
So what about gamers on pc, xb1 or wii u? 25mil is such an impressive feat and hats off to Sony but drop the propaganda talk pal
What about them?? lol I don't believe there's any mention in my comment or in this videocast about any of those in regards to the gamers who play on them. It's not propaganda when what I said is based on facts. If facts bother you that much, then go to a Xbox vs PS4 article where each comment is biased and states anything but facts.
Err what about them? Silly comment.
"Propaganda"? They are the only company to do more then 80 million EVERY GENERATION! Sold the most out of MS and Nintendo. Something is crazy when 80 million is considered low sales to a company. lol They are ridiculously consistent EVERY GEN. I agree with what many are stating...what about them? The article is not about PC, nor XONE, nor Wii U. 25 million is not only an impressive feat, its clearly showing this company is doing something correct EVERY GEN if they are able to keep doing this over and over and over. Clearly...something they are doing is correct if 80 plus million are returning every gen. This is about what PS4 has done, not what XONE or Wii U or PC is not doing, its not even a dis to any console or platform to be honest, I'm not sure why one wold think that.
Some of these people have lost their minds. They're acting like sonys sales is some great accomplishment they did. I don't get it.
@Edmix, You are altering the numbers to support your opinions instead of forming your opinions around the numbers. Sony sold half as many PS3's as they did PS2's. I'm not sure how that is consistent. Losing half of your sales and even more in market share is almost hard to do if your name isn't Nintendo. Sony changed the way they do business with the PS4 relying more on third party content, charging to play online and focusing on subscription services like PSNow and PSVue.
@death Last I checked they didn't stop manufacturing the PS3 just yet. I don't think that "losing half" is a correct statement even at this time and age but the PS3 has a few years on the shelves still. I just bought one for my son for cristmas and I'm sure I wasn't the only one. The thing is still selling pretty well afaik so the gap is shrinking. Someone could provide a link to sales right about now. Also about the market share I fail to see how Sony is losing anything by the time there comes a gen along where people find more than one console desireable. They all win don't they?
"You are altering the numbers to support your opinions instead of forming your opinions around the numbers. Sony sold half as many PS3's as they did PS2's" Because that's not at ALL what you just did with that last sentence. Could you be any more salty?
@Death- "Sony sold half as many PS3's as they did PS2's. I'm not sure how that is consistent." When your doing more units then MS and Nintendo's consoles sales COMBINED...your kinda doing something correct. Add them up, Sony's PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 combined is more then all of Nintendo's consoles and MS consoles...COMBINED in sales. Sony is the only company to sell more then 80 million every gen.. Nintendo has sold consoles LONGER yet only did this once, MS did this once and its the BEST they've ever done, yet the worst for Sony is again...the BEST for BOTH MS AND Nintendo.. The reality is...that is saying A LOT about how well PS systems actually sell. "Sony changed the way they do business with the PS4 relying more on third party content" Sure, you wish Death. Last I recall, Sony still has the largest first party, they still have titles in development. They are getting more third party content, not sure about them some how getting LESS first party as a result. The Order, Bloodborne, Horizon, Knack, Sucker Punch working on a new IP, Naughty Dog working on a new ip, Quanitic Dreams working on a new IP, Sony Bend and the list goes on and on and on. Sure. 25 million states otherwise, Sony still has studios in the dark...says otherwise. Everybody Gone To The Rapture...coming literally in DAYS says otherwise, btw Sony owns the IP to that title too, add another to the list..
@Death: So you're comparing the PS3's performance to literally the most popular console that has ever been created? Considering the gamble that they made on the Cell processor nearly destroyed the Playstation brand, I'd have to say that they still did remarkably well and came back to outsell their competition after launching a year late. (And before anyone says what about the Wii, if you look at the Venn diagram of Wii owners to other console owners, you're going to see that the Wii was an inexpensive and innovative console that had Nintendo's catalog of unique IPs. It was an easy choice for a second console, and really *had* no competition in the market. If you haven't heard of the "Blue Ocean" strategy, it's a fascinating concept. Look it up!) Go ahead and compare any other console to that PS2 Lifetime Sales yardstick and you're going to see that nothing measures up. Very few consoles have even made half as many sales. Not even the original NES, and those things were goddamn everywhere. Hardly a fair comparison.
2 and a half years? Are you in the future? It released only 1 year and 8 months ago...
Haha good catch. Not sure why I put two? I meant one and a half (give or take obviously). I guess that's what it feels like.
It's true. A man would maybe interested in PC or WiiU (sold his after E3) but there isn't even time anymore. All these PS+ games, first party titles all year, third party stuff all year, and a nice focus on a man's favorite modes (SP and co-op) have filled as much gaming time as a man can take this gen (just now catching up on a backlog but still have to get GTA5 and Witcher 3 and THEN Until Dawn is right around the corner!)
Well this is the week we find out if North America will get the MGS 5 PS4 bundle or not. If we don't hear anything at Gamescom then it ain't coming here. Which is a shame. Its the best looking PS4 so far and an awesome special edition bundle is the only thing stopping me from getting a PS4. Yea I know there are the Batman and Destiny bundles but I don't want yet another black or white console. I collect these consoles so might as well wait for an amazing looking one in a color that's not black, white or gray.
That MGSV PS4 is a must, Sony would be really unwise to not release it here. If they dont, they sure as hell better have a good reason why, lots of peeps would buy it.
Just to vouch for the Batman PS4 it looks awesome & even better in person, the gunmetal silver is a really nice touch! I agree though with the MGS bundle. The red PS4 looks amazing & would sell a TON of PS4's!! It'd be a money maker & SONY would be foolish to not try to do anything to try & bring here to NA!
Without: Uncharted God of War Gran Turismo Final Fantasy 15 Price Cut Its simply incredible how well the ps4 is doing
@Rimeskeem make a bundle with each of those games and you will have lots of millions extra consoles sold ...? ..wait.. oh.. they ARE doing that with GOW3:R ...hmmm...could it be??
PS1/2 were gold even PS3 was gold despite it's flaws I don't see why PS4 wouldn't be gold, Sony makes the best consoles in the world that's why Playstation brand is so popular
Amazing sales! I just can't even imagine what the numbers will be when they eventually announce an official price cut!
What I find the most impressive is they're doing this without a price drop and without their reliable bombardment of great first party titles. When those two kick in, then that's when the PS4 will truly shine.
After tomorrow event of MS at GAMESCOM you will forget about the stupid sells ;)
He's prolly the guy who disliked my comment "Holy bahjesus!" lol
It's not "sells" it's sales
i just cant imagine the money sony can make when it finally stops making shitty movies
Oh really ? Do you really think so ? It's not like Sony can do anything. Every movie studios do make some shitty movie and some good movie, not just Sony.
Yup, that's the nature of the movie business, they rely on one or two hits a year to make up for the rest that either lose money or barely break even. What I don't get is how some of these obviously crappy movies ever get funded in the first place.
anybody got any SALT ? keep it rolling Sony
its strange that literally the main releases aren't even coming out soon at all and the system is selling like crazy
In terms of sales, I don't think it will be an exaggeration to say that Sony will win this gen.
When I saw those 8 GB GDDR5 announced back in February of 2013 and saw that KZ Shadowfall/Driveclub trailer, I knew the PS4 was going to be an instant winner, it was the leap the gaming console industry needed.
damn only from consoles Sony made 10 billion dollars++ Very nice Sony :) Now release NMS k thx
Sony got humbled by the fiasco that was the PS3 launch and this time listened to feedback and did everything right. Powerful hardware, easy to program, and a low price. Unless you are a diehard fan of Nintendo and MS franchises there's really no reason not to make the PS4 the console of choice.
So what you are saying is, if you aren't buying a console for Nintendo or Microsoft exclusives, you are better off with a Playstation? Kind of makes sense unless you are a PC fan or into handhelds. I like how you listed "listen to feedback". Remember when Sony fans were asking for subscription TV and game rental streaming at the start of this gen? Neither do I.
When I say "console of choice" I think it's pretty self explanatory that it excludes handhelds and pc... As for the exclusive thing... Most games come out for PS4 and Xbox One and in general run better on the PS4. So if you exclude the exclusives and just go by multiplats, there's no reason to get an Xbox over a PS4. It's cheaper and it runs better. Nintendo overall isn't even part of that equation. So unless you MUST have Halo, Forza, Gears or say Mario, Zelda, Smash, the obvious choice is a PS4.
What country are you in that the PS4 is cheaper than an Xbox One? The Xbox One has been cheaper for quite some time and if you are an online gamer, Live is still the better online service. With the Xbox app on Windows 10 you are always connected with your friends even when you aren't on your console. The universal apps are nice too. As for multiplats running better on PS4, I have both my consoles connected to the same HDTV. The difference is only detectible if someone with the right equipment points it out. I don't agree with there being an obvious choice and I won't discount Nintendo as being a viable option either. A PS4 is an obvious choice for Playstation fans. The rest of the world has some pretty good options but very well could end up with a PS4. To say it's obvious is extremely narrow minded though.
@intlp, Sony hit 7.9 million Plus subscribers at the end of October 2014. This included PS3 subscribers. http://www.gamespot.com/art... According to the statement, 6.5 million of those are PS4 owners. This means a little over 1 million of the 80 million PS3 owners thought Plus was worth paying for. I don't think people chose to pay, it became mandatory with the PS4. To put this into perspective, Live had 46 million subscribers the year before. http://www.gameinformer.com... By the way, the "vast majority" of console gamers don't exist on the PS4. There are still connected Xbox 360's, Wii's and WiiU's in the wild along with the Xbox One. The "vast majority" of PS4 players don't even pay for the service. It was half of them in 2014. In North America where I live, Xbox One is not a distant second. The two consoles are relatively close together in sales.
Hey Death, you responded to me on another PS4 sales article yesterday but I couldn't respond to you. Since you're on another PS4 sales article trying to downplay it (as usual) I figure I'll just address what you stated here since this article and the other article are practically the same topic anyway. Me - "The PS4 already won this generation. It's dominating the competition even though the heavy hitters haven't arrived yet. Now imagine what's going to happen when the heavy hitters like Uncharted 4, The Last Guardian, Horizon Zero Dawn, Gran Turismo 7, Rachet & Clank, etc do arrive next year and beyond. This is just the calm before the storm.." Your response - "Wasn't The Order one of the games that would bring Playstation Dominance to the PS4? I know Driveclub was supposed to do it the year before." Uhm.. Death, you do realize that the PS4 is already dominating right? You obviously brought those games up because you're making the assertion that those games are not heavy hitters so if those aren't heavy hitters and the PS4 is still dominating all you're doing is furthering my point.
Death... when he's drunk and forget to wear his "i'm neutral, i'm a gamer." mask.
It's Death when I'm annoyed by all the kids that wave their domination flag and dismiss all other gaming. I'm older and should know better than to disagree with the hardcore Playstation fans that know everything. My apologies.
@Death here in the UK the XB1 and PS4 are the same price. The RRP for the PS4 is £349.99 and the Xbox One is £299. But most stores and online retailers sell the PS4 at £299 the same price as the Xbox. Also when they make bundles the PS4 bundles seem to the be most value for money. For example Gamestop the other week gave away a PS TV with any PS4 console purchase. So if you bought the £299 Witcher 3 and Bloodborne bundle you also got a PS TV console for free. Where the best Xbox bundle for the same price was Witcher 3 and Forza Horizon 2.
PC's are not consoles ,they are personal computers
PC's are indeed like consoles today. You may not have yours hooked up to your HDTV, but there is a reason GPU's have HDMI outputs. When consoles run Windows and feature x86 CPU's they are more like PC's than they are traditional consoles. Not to mention installing games to the HDD isn't very console like either. Todays PC's and consoles are extremely similar to one another in both hardware design and game development. @Ocelot, Giving away PSTV isn't adding value. They are giving them away since no one bought them during the fire sale. PSTV is a failed product on it's way out.
@death Thanks for pointing out just how dumb Americans can be, bunch of dude bros who DON'T care about quality and go for the cheapest thing around. It's moments like this that I wish ms would have stayed the course and not flipped the switch they said couldn't be flipped. I fully expect them to flip that switch once they have suckered in enough blinded consumers. I feel for the ones that don't know any better, but ones like death? You all deserve everything ms is going to shortchanged you for.
@thricetold, I wish Microsoft hadn't caved in to ignorance and flipped the unflippable switch too. I would liked to have ripped my games to the HDD and not needed disc based DRM to prove ownership. My consoles are connected 24/7 anyway. It would be nice to have access to all of my retail bought games as well as my digital purchases remotely. It's too bad Microsoft listened to people like you instead of the ones that could afford the more expensive console at launch. With the launch of Windows 10 we are getting a better glimpse at what Microsoft was unable to convey to us at the announcement. It's too bad we won't be able to benefit from what they originally wanted to do. The only thing they needed was a solution for those that didn't want to go online. As for being shortchanged, that would be you my friend. I enjoy gaming on all the platforms and am not afraid of any of them unlike you. I work hard and earn everything that is coming to me. To feel like you deserve something is self-entitlement and something I will gladly leave behind with you. Thanks for the reply.
"so if you exclude the exclusives and just go by multiplats , there's no reason to get an xbox over a ps4" unless people simply prefer the xbox regardless and theres more to xbox other than halo , forza and gears which people always overlook so not everyone chooses ps4
It's only selling well due to unwarranted Hype, as the PS4 certainly doesn't have better games than the Xbox One. PS3 had a bunch of good exclusives so people just assume PS4 is gonna have the same when in reality, Xbox One is getting all the best exclusives so far.
Dumbest thing I've read all day. "unwarranted Hype" Yet "PS3 had a bunch of good exclusives so people just assume PS4 is gonna have the same" soooo how is that "unwarranted" ??? LOL! Have you not considered that PS1, PS2 and PS3 all did over 80 million? SOoooooo would it not be far to assume that those that bought those would buy PS4 based on experiences with other PS systems? SOoooooooo how is that "unwarranted"? LOL! Are those who are buying XONE RIGHT NOW for Gears 4 "unwarranted" to hype on Gears? I'm sorry but none of what your saying makes sense. "best" is subjective bud, people are not just buying systems for the lolz. If XONE was getting all the "best" clearly the sales would be favoring them right now. Maybe its because they don't have a history of having good exclusives, only just delaying them in other places and having them um..."first". I mean...if gamers are buying consoles based on what they got with PS3....maybe they are NOT buying XONE based on what they got from 360...just saying.
The PS1 and PS2 were well over 100 million with the PS2 hitting 150 million. Your assumption didn't work with the PS3 since we only seen half of the PS2 owners make the jump. Two years in we haven't seen the same amount of first party support we have seen in the past from Sony. According to Sony themselves they see subscription services as the way to make a profit with the PS4. Never before have we seen this from them. They are set to release a separate platform with Morpheus next year too. How they will support both is yet to be seen. We seen how they didn't support Vita or Move, so they don't exactly have a great track record as far as supporting more than one platform goes.
@Death. "The PS1 and PS2 were well over 100 million with the PS2 hitting 150 million. Your assumption didn't" Nope and nope. What I stated but was "Have you not considered that PS1, PS2 and PS3 all did over 80 million?" Ie 80 at the least come along with every PS. Mind you...PS3 isn't even done selling yet. "They are set to release a separate platform with Morpheus next year too" lol No...no its not bud. "“VR for us, it’s not a peripheral,” Layden said. “It’s not a, ‘here’s the latest way to interact with the game’ thing. It’s a platform. It has the ability to impact gaming" I don't think they just mean literally VR is another console or handheld or something, its a PS4 attachment. http://vrfocus.com/archives... You very much still need a PS4 to use it and I'm not sure why you just read a headline as if Sony was announcing a new system JUST for VR lol " How they will support both" LMFAO! Consider they are the ONLY ONE to support 3 AT THE SAME TIME! Or did you forget that PSP, PS2 and PS3 where being supported by Sony at once? Hell...PS3, PS4 and PSV are being supported by Sony. Wrong company to question that from bud.. Last I recall, Move got 250 titles that supported it and did 15 million. PS2 got support all the way up until a year ago with games releasing and the system still being produced. They deep, deep lolz. Sure Death...sure.
nope, on metacritics so far sony dominate in average scores, quantity of games, and 90+ aaa score exclusives while no xbox exclusive ever reach that scores, most people is smart enough to know where the best game at and they buy the best console. wake up stop dreaming kid only u and minority of people say xbox game is the best
"PS3 had a bunch of good exclusives so people just assume PS4 is gonna have the same" As far as I know only xbox fanboys expect and praise the same exact exclusives every console generation. OT- PS4 is selling well because it is the most supported and preferred console this generation. Simple as that. It has way more games and how good a game is to one person is HIGHLY subjective. Its not wise to try and pass it off as fact.
Lol good try ps4 wins in exclusives hands down imo with Killzone Shadow Fall Resogun Infamous: Second Son Bloodborne lbp3 and it still has Until Dawn The Tomorrow Children Persona 5 Disgaea 5 Dragon Quest Heroes and more to come this year xbox one is a good system but most of there exclusives are shooters and racers. the only games that look good imo are. Rare Replay Scalebound Sea of Thieves sunset overdrive
GALAK-Z Everybody's Gone to the Rapture Volume, console exclusive Tales of Zestiria Soma, console exclusive Salt & Sanctuary Broforce Rime, could make 2015 No Man's Sky, holiday 2015? Killstrain Obviously Tearaway Unfolded, Nathan Drake Collection ect. So many more timed/PS/console exclusives than xbone, the breadth of games and choice on PlayStation has surely helped push PS4 to a lead that doubles it's closest competitor in sales. With 2016 and 2017 packed with exclusive heavy hitters PlayStation is indeed entering a 2nd golden age. When u inject Morpheus VR into the equation along with Vita, remote play, shareplay, ps now, ps vue, cross-play/cross buy u have an extremely powerful and diverse PlayStation ecosystem. When u become enveloped in the PlayStation universe and are able to take advantage of all these wonderful things it's truly incredible.
Don't forget Wild, Ratchet remake and What Remains of Edith Finch....but I guess when a publisher has the most exclusives, its easy to forget a few lol
"Salt & Sanctuary", is that a game about xbox fanboys? jk ;)
