The PS4 Pro got its first major sales milestone in Japan, while the PS4 family has finally passed the PS Vita in local lifetime sales.
Very good number for a home console on Japan, but if they cut the size and make a Mini-pro then the sales will increase.
I don’t think Sony is in any hurry to do a hardware revision for Pro; they really don’t need to as its clearly selling decently. I imagine we won’t see a new Pro until we’re really close to PS5 launch, since Pro is likely going to replace base PS4 after PS5 is released.
A PRO for $ 300 would now be very interesting.
Give it until next holiday. I’d put money down that there will be $300 Pro’s next holiday.
Calling it: Either a refreshed PS4 Pro at two forty-nine ninety-nine next holiday, or the current Pro at that price.
Japan is the only region that individually categorizes New 3DS, PS4 Pro, & XO X sales numbers
Damn better than I expected on Japan, X sold 1K there 😂
It will hit 1k by Next April I am sure
Very good numbers
Congrats! Gaming still going strong
So xbox one x has passed 500 units sold 😁
All i want to say is i love my PRO .
some are looking forward to a ps5 already? why? if anything this gen has proven then that new hardware is futile as long as the games are not getting better.
Xbox one x can't do 4k60 on graphics heavy games like the witcher 3 or ac origins, if ps5 were to come out sony should make it significantly more powerful than xboxonex, imho it should run any games @4k60 fps.
You realize that games only get more complicated as time goes on. Hardware gets better, then games MAX it out. That is the way of things. If you go into next gen expecting EVERY game to be 4k60fps you'll only be disappointed. Personally I'm fine with 1080p30fps and would prefer the extra power go to draw distance, physics, and ai
Resolution and frame rate are results of the choices of the developers. They can do this now as well as they may not do so with the PS5. The only way the PS5 can make 4K/60fps in all games would be by maintaining the graphic quality of the PS4 games.
@yellowgerbil zzzz idiotic point of view draw distance + very high resolution = amazing experience if you don't get what I'm saying you probably just play corridor games.
during the beginning of this gen, expecting next gen to be 4K60fps is a bit much considering even the PS4 had to do 900p to achieve 60fps in games like BF4 and had to use temporal reprojection 1080p technique in KZSF for that elusive 60fps. but thanks to the mid-gen refresh with the Pro and X, expecting 4K60fps for next gen is no longer a luxury but a must when there are games out there already doing it this gen. anything less than 4K60fps next gen would be a disappointment.
Because the Jaguar APU is holding consoles back. The GPU in consoles are their. The GPU alone in the PS4 Pro is better than the average steam users GPU. The X GPU is even better. But both the Pro and X are held back by the potato of a CPU. Just imagine if both the X and Pro had a custom Ryzen APU. 30FPS gaming would be a thing of the past. Imagine playing Horizon Zero Dawn at 60FPS.
It was great as is, fps doesn't make games more fun just run a little smoother
When the PRO was released Ryzen did not even exist.
@jznrpg smoother running games = better gameplay games.
Yes @ jznrpg it is a great game. But it would of been even more enjoyable at 60FPS. @ILostMyMind yes this is true but they could of held releasing the Pro by a year. However, What is done is done now. With the PS5 Sony could even look at going the AMD/Intel combo route. If you missed it about a month or so ago. AMD and Intel announced a partnership. Future Intel mobile chips (for Laptops) will be a Intel CPU with integrated AMD Graphics. Maybe they can create a custom APU for the next generation of consoles.
So in just 1 year, Pro sells more than 6 times as many as X1 and X1X have sold combined, since launch? Not bad.
That means around 1 our of every 12 PS4’s there is a Pro. Not too bad, considering the Pro has only been out for a year. If it has a similar attach ratio for the rest of the world, that’s still at least 6 million Pro’s sold WW. Still not bad for a mid gen upgrade. Hopefully we get actual figures for WW.
Sony said 20% aka 1/5 but that doesn't add up to 20%
Well, I’m just saying the least possible amount would be 6 million. I imagine it has a higher attach rate in other regions. Plus, Sony’s 20% figure was the percentage after Pro’s launch, ie 1 in 5 PS4’s sold after November 10th last year were Pro’s, in which case 6 million would actually be more than 20%; it’d be more around 33%, which is even better.
That's surprising, correct me if I'm wrong but the PS4 itself hasn't even hit 3 million there yet. Wasn't it at like 2 mill? Guess it was double that. Talk about underestimating lol. Congrats Sony PS4 is selling like hot cakes. Idt it'll pass ps2, too much competition this time around but PS4 does gives you that ps2 vibe.
PS4 is at around 6 million total in Japan.
GreatNess 1 year later doesn't seem so great after 1 year on home turf. Now here we have proof that the Pro is a slight upgrade in the eyes of the masses and across the world. I guess it is truly a system for diehards. I guess we can assume that's all of them... when you put into consideration that these people love their Tech... a year later only this amount sold on the so-called home of the PlayStation. Pathetic.
So what is Xbox? Obviously less than pathetic
If you seriously believe PS4 is doing poorly on their 'home turf' you must be really disappointed at how xbone is performing on its home turf. Its currently getting murdered in the US and UK, even scorpio did jack. Lol.
1 year later on home turf it only sold that many? Is the thought that went through everyone's mind when we read the title... followed by oh boy... here we go. Watch these fanboys suit up and start sliding down poles like fireman Rushing to fire. My opinion is that everyone that came across that title is in disbelief with the performance of the Pro ON HOME TURF. Most won't admit these numbers are pretty low for Sony branded ps4 Console after a full year. If you were to tell me this number last year in a few to make this prediction and dad a year later only 500,000 console in Japan from the pro I would have laughed at you. So when I saw the title I was conflicted internally but honestly at the end of the day I just want to laugh out loud light and then say sayonara Felicia! Microsoft said it themselves their hopes are not so big on Japan and is no way an excuse fo those low number. And stop trying to fall back on Xbox sales numbers in Japan that's not going to help you this is your home turf.
So lets analyse PS4 sales in their home turf but not xbone in its? Cherry picking hypocrisy at its finest.
@B1uBurneR consoles are not doing very good in Japan anymore. the PS4 is still under 6 mil there after 4 years. so 500k after a year is actually good enough for Sony. Switch is doing it differently with their hybrid concept and Nintendo knows well that handheld is huge in Japan especially theirs.
Don't cry man. Just go play pubg.
