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..^^!!

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?

gaffyh2043d ago

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.

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.

por xbox one, I'll use you as my door stoper.

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.

T22043d ago

hmmmm so this means they obviously have a solid plan to manufacture that many as well... impressive.

Smoovekid2044d ago

Definately possible and probably will happen.
