WiiU 407,371 YTD PS4 1,700,237 YTD XOne 625,911 YTD Market Share: WiiU 14.9% PS4 62.2% XOne 22.9%
crazy number the ps4 has pushed so far this year. Keep up the good work Sony. Also side note ps3 is beating xbox one a sign of sony's strength and depth in this industry or MS own failings or both, thoughts?
Damn, PS4 owns 62.2% of the marketshare so far, crazy numbers that will only get better
for this year, that is not representative of the actual market share Sony owns. But still impressive regardless.
There was an estimate about PS4 having 60.0% market share, some fanboys denied that haha. 6th generation all over again :).
These numbers are just estimates and we know VGChartz history. They're liberal with Xbox sales and very conservative with Playstation's. I like the more for less approach Sony has taken with PS4. Now take that and apply to the rest of your division and you'll definitely see increase in consumption for Sony products. @Neonridr, Don't know why you felt like you needed to state the obvious there. That's clearly apparent from the "YTD (year to date)" as oppose to "LTD (life to date)".
Dem sales http://static.gamespot.com/... http://static.gamespot.com/... For entertainments sake there's usually around 250m+ consoles sold, so based on these percentages (although things can change, and it's better to get a full year of sales) the current rankings for total sales would be. Wii U: 37.3M PS4: 155.5M XBO: 57.3M Those who are saying PS2 sales will never happen again might want to rethink that. If that percentage keeps up then the PS4 is going to blow the competition out of the water. The Wii U has a tougher battle ahead of it, but this year is going to determine the success or failure of the Wii U with two of it's biggest franchises hitting the console this year, a potential price drop / extreme bundle around the holiday, and hopefully other big franchises come E3 this will be make or break for Nintendo. Nintendo doesn't have much leeway on pricing because they're already at $300 which is usually the starting price for mass appeal, yet they're still struggling. 2014 is make or break time. The good news for the XBO is it's expensive. Meaning it has several price cuts it can make over the years to keep interest in the console. MS has the chance to do what Sony did with the PS3 last gen if they play their cards right (although I doubt they'll surpass the PS4 without something major like a massively discounted subsidize console through TV providers). By the end of this year I guarantee we'll see a $399 XBO or close to it. They'll ride the wave of increase sales, then 2015 we'll see amazing bundles for the XBO, then 2016 we'll a $299 XBO and by then people will be looking for a second console, and that will be their chance to shine and make a comeback. These numbers are crazy, but I think we'll see something closer to Wii U: 40 - 50m PS4: 120m - 160m XBO: 60m - 80m when it's all said and done, which looks a lot better for Nintendo and MS, and not as bad as the PS2 era beatdown. Nintendo will reach the magic $200 price point first, which should spawn plenty of sales (it was the price I bought my Wii U for new). MS has until 2016 to reach all of it's regions, and develop a killer line-up of exclusives for the holiday and drop the price down to $300, so people looking for a second console will chose XBO first. Sony just needs to keep doing what their doing, upgrading the OS and services, and producing diverse AAA exclusives this gen is in the bag for them, unless disaster strikes.
I didn't expect it to be so high for some reason, PS4 killin it!
Playstation for the whole nation. Playstation us synonymous with quality and that's what smart gamers want Ps4 is the future and the future is ps4
Hopefully all the numbers get better. I like a well rounded console gen with the real competition in the diverse creativity between platforms/exclusives.
Great numbers for this year that will only get better as more sales from Japan are added. And I think you answered your own question...
@TheLyonKing, I think it's both. All through 2012-2014 Sony has been handling PlayStation like a pro. And Microsoft has been doing the exact opposite. Microsoft is only just now trying to right their wrongs but the damage is already done. Right now sales of Xbox One and 360 combined don't even light a finger to PS4, while sales of PS3 is outpacing Xbox One and the 360 respectively. I think one of the biggest problems is Microsoft have zero market presence in Japan. Which is the main reason the Wii U is right on their tail. Unless Microsoft can make some sort of impact in Japan they have zero chance of coming on top. It's just too great of a market to be ignored, on top of all their other issues.
PS4 is really dominating the competition. PS2 all over again.
Jesus, that's brutal...
Damn SONY created a Monster with PS4!! Congrats
Means more games for ps4!
well said, and that's what it's all about.
OMG Dat market share. O.O
Well done ninty and ms its the only numbers that concern me keep up the good work.
You should most certainly be concerned with how the PS4 is doing in relation to MS, it directly affects you. be concerned, be very concerned.
That makes no sense, why would a person who only cares what MS and Nintendo be concerned about how the PS4 is doing?
It makes complete sense.. Sales between two competing products directly affects the future of the said products. If the PS4 pulls away dramatically, the future of the XBone will be in doubt. It also means developers may sway towards PS4 (or XBone) in the future, thus, leaving its counterpart less desirable to produce material for (games). It would be ludicrous to say MS or Sony are not concerned how their rival product is performing, because it directly affects the success of the product. So in this case, fans should also take note of how the rival product is doing, as it will completely affect what material is released for it, and the longevity of the product. I thought this was pretty obvious personally.
Not at all, if said gamer has bought or is only interested in say a Nintendo or Microsoft 1st party excluses the relevance of Sony 1st party exclusives propbably not matter at all. It's been almost a generation since 3rd party delevopers have pulled games out to be mutually exclusive to the highest seller. Outside personally finacing 3rd party titles to become exclusive or just buying companies up outright, outside is going extinct. You're assuming the intent to buy based on sales... not neccessarily games.
Wait wait wait, so let me get this straight. Are you really going to sit there and try and say that the success of a rival product won't have any affect on the other? If XBone doesn't make the money it intended with sales, because the PS4 is dominating, how exactly are they going to support their first part studios, or even finance third party? that's right, they won't, because the PS4 has restricted sales. What on earth are you talking about? What happens when the producers of a game like Mass Effect (which many bought the 360 for, and was thought to be exclusive), decide to go on to release it for the rival system (as sales were beginning to produce more year for year)? There becomes much less reason to own that product as it is also available on the other. If XBone had been smashing the PS4, i would bet money that TitanF2 would be a lot more likely to remain exclusive on the XBone, this will not happen now, just watch. Also funny how you didn't say anything about my first point, huh? It is completely ignorant and naive to try and sit there and say that the success of the PS4 does not correspond to the lifespan and success of the XBone. Anyway, it's my last bubble, tata!
Yes look at the tablet market for example, the Ipad by all accounts should be destroying the Android Tablet market (and it did in the begining). That it didn't stop the samsungs, sonys, and asus, from providing the platform and giving the market an alternate that has thrived and taken back the market share. Microsoft is not a good example to use becuase no matter how far behind they fall in xbox sales, they, unlike Sony, have the money to do whatever they need to do to make it work (assuming they want it to work). Nintendo would be a better example of this situation, where those of us that bought a Wii U understood it would be underpowered and likely a last resort of 3rd party titles, we still bought it for it's 1st party offerings. The Wii by all accounts should have dominated last generation with most and best games because it sold the most right? I'm pretty we both know the answer to that.
Don't see how Its not like other games don't exist my lack of concern should not concern you.
PS4 is killing it. Well deserved IMO.
TOTAL Domination!!!!! PSQuad!!!!!
So, about those "market share" arguments that replaced "sales" arguments once the PS3 overtook the 360 in total sales...
Ok didn't Nintendo confirm more then 5.8 mil Wii u in December? Vgchartz shorting Wii u
i want to know how many ps4s would of beeen sold if sony had 20mil ps4s or 30mil in stock..
I think you gave yourself an answer.. 20 or 30 millones D:
haha true :p
PSfour Dominates, MS is biting the short end of the stick, and Nintendo is doing their own thing. In conclusion: PS4 is the Godzilla, Nintendo is Sasuke, and Xbone is Danzo.
Just goes to show the huge game that has built. Sony deserves every single one.
@urwifeminder. The way it's going at the moment, Ninty numbers may be the ONLY numbers you're gonna have left lol.
Xbox is getting trampled like a tripped up Spanish guy in a Bull run.
Over 60% of the market share this is with out big releases that's amazing great job Sony you deserve it!
wow & this is all happening without killer exclusives yet.. Death awaits
Dont worry about Death he will post here sooner or later. Anyways great results for Sony.
lol if you look at it in retrospect...like the Wii...the Xbox 360 is looking like Microsoft's 'fluke'.
Everyone's back to believing VG chartz again huh?
poor xone...reminds me the first xbox console.
