Asian markets seem to love the PS4 console and its games as they are selling at a faster rate than the PS2 generation.
This is really impressive, specially for software!
Agreed. I wonder how far PS4 can go during its lifetime?
Even Sony doesn't know what is making them sell this gen. No one knows. Even with "lack of games", "no AAA games" it's still selling faster than the competitor who by itself is selling better than last gen. Only time will tell us how far it will go in its lifetime.
I think it will outsell PS2 the reason: a lot of great games There are so many great games coming out on PS4 that I literally can't even keep up, it has 2 times more games that the competion both combined and the most diverse lineup ever, You many think the lineup is lacking if you're a bro shotter dude then you're better with a xbone but if you're a adult who wants to play a great diverese lineup of games and try different genres something new and fresh then PS4 is for you
@Mix I think it's pretty obvious why the PS4 is outselling the competition.
@Haru I dont get this mentality. In the first year of PS2 we had: Silent Hill 2, Jak and Daxter, FF X, MGS 2, GTA III, Devil May Cry, and Ico. This is off the top of my head and in the FIRST year with no multiplats. And these are all games that pushed the boundary of games, some created entire genres! Compare that to the PS4 (or any other console this gen), and there is no contest. 2 years in and software is still largely stagnant with innovation. I would say Splatoon, Sunset OD and Until Dawn are the only games that feel truly unique after 2 years (3 with Wii U)
It sold 25 million in 2 years or close to. With the Ban on Console lifted in China, the PS4 will sell a lot more than it ever did.
Isn't this because they're legal in China now?
Actually no because there was a similar situation last year.
Those will help, but it's not like any of the consoles are really setting the country on fire. Plus, it's not like China's sales have been a factor for long, and weren't they limited to Hong Kong until very recently, as well?
Its probably more because we're looking at 13 years of market growth between the two consoles.
So now we're gonna have to go get more (PS4's). And then we're gonna go on even more (PS4) adventures after that, Morty. And you're gonna keep your mouth shut about 'em, Morty. Because the world is full of idiots that don't understand what's important. And they'll tear us apart, Morty. But if you stick with me, I'm gonna accomplish Great(ness), Morty. And you're gonna be a part of 'em. And together we're gonna run around, Morty, we're gonna do all kinds of wonderful (PS4) things, Morty. Just you and me, (and the PS4) Morty. The outside world is our enemy, Morty. We're the only [belch] : friends we've got, Morty. It's just Rick and Morty (and the PS4). Rrrick and Morty and (PS4) and their adventures, Morty. Rick and Morty (and PS4), forever and forever, a hundred years Rick and Morty (and PS4), s... things. Me and Rick and Morty (and PS4) runnin' around and Rick and Morty (and PS4) time. Aaall day long forever. All, a hundred days Rick and Morty (and PS4) forever a hundred times. Over and over Rick and Morty (and PS4) adventures dot com W W W dot Rick and Morty (and PS4) dot com W W W Rick and Morty (and PS4) adventures all hundred years. Every minute Rick and Morty (and PS4) dot com W W W hundred times Rick and Morty (and PS4) dot com.
Love that comment. (: I think moral of the story is that PS4 is where its at.
Thank you for this. Hahaha
Dude, Rick and Morty for the motha****in' WIN! Great comment!
What do you expect aside from playstation being a japanese made console? Asia has been a PS stronghold since PSone aside from nintendo.
PlayStation is a brand that appeals to a global audience. So this is really not that surprising. Will PS4 pass PS2's 155 million? That's another matter.
Most likely not, but it should follow PS standards of 100 million, though it could also miss it like PS3 has done.
I doubt it will fall short of 100 million. The PS4 is not only selling faster than the PS2 in the same time frame. It's also selling faster than the PS3 AND the 360 combined in the same time frame.
I predict 120 million PS4's and 60-70 million Xbones. Wii U around 18 million since all that extra stock will be selling for nothing in a few years. Its important to remember both ps3 and 360 couldn't keep up with demand at multiple times and the Xbone and PS4 are doing a much better job in this respect. Also the 360 had the RROD.
Glad to hear consoles doing great.
Good one for Sony, PS brand has a lot of variety of games to offer specially to those rpg fans in Asia
Really good to hear!
And after TGS it's going to sell even faster. Can't wait for PGS and PSX.
Ps4 made Michael Patcher stfu.
This alone earns it the honor of one of the greatest consoles of all time.
Impressive but PS2 eventually sold more than 20 million in the region, so it'd be interesting if PS4 could surpass that
