    Will PS4 reach 10 million units sold in August?

    Place your bets people, earlier this month it was unofficially reported that PS4 had sold 9 million units.

    Thus keeping to the trajectory of 1 million consoles sold per month.

    As of Dec 31 2013 - 4.2 Million
    As of Feb 8 2014 - 5.3 Million
    As of Mar 2 2014 - 6 Million
    As of Apr 6 2014 - 7 Million
    As of Jul 2 2014 - 9 Million (unofficial)

    So what do you think, will we get an announcement in August that over 10 million units have been sold?

    Gamescom is getting closer and will make for the perfect place to announce such an achievement.

    What say you?

    I believe it will. While TLOU may not be a system seller for previous PS3 owners, I'm fairly certain it will help some fence sitters who didn't own a PS3 and looking to get into the new gen.

    Judging by the momentum it has had this year I would even say before that, especially as the white Destiny bundle is due out in September, think that along with the Driveclub bundle will really shift some units easily taking in past 10 million!

    I think it really depends on how reliable that July 2nd 9M number is. Once you get out of tax refund season for the US (March/April) the sales rates on consoles tends to stay pretty flat until Fall games schedules which gives it an up tick, and then a major jump during the Holidays.

    If it was really at 9M July 2nd, I suspect the PS4 will hit 10M by end of Aug, if that number was bogus, then nope. That said, I'm guessing the PS4 will hit 14M by Dec 31st (with a slim chance of hitting 15M.)

    Even with only a handful of non cross-gen games this fall. Assassin's Creed Unity is the first Major cross platform line to go 100% Current Gen. This will drive sales as there's a number of die hard addicts. If CoD or a GTA did it, then it would push even more people to the next gen. These are addict games that a fair amount of the crowd only grabs one or two games a year, but these are their go to games.

    When there's only a handful of exclusives for the generation, and only one or two of those which are truly great. That's not going to drive those who are 'content' with the graphic fidelity of the PS3 to move on. Even though they know that the graphical fidelity is better, and there may be a few more bells and whistles.

    That said, it's actually surprising how well this generation has sold so far. A few more must have 'this gen only' games next year will cement it, and you'll have a solid 25-30M PS4's sold by Dec. 31st 2015 (I'll wait to see how well the XB1 rebounds this Christmas given the price drop but if I were to guess, they'd be about 5M behind PS4 at the end of next holiday season.)

    I would eat my sandwich if they hadn't gotten 10 million by now. I'd eat it if they had, too. I'm not much of a gambling man. I like certainty.

    Really, though, I'd be quite surprised if they hadn't hit the 10 million mark.

    EA's netflix-like service may move some Xbones, though, and take some away from PS4... At least while the timed exclusivity holds.

    I doubt the "EA Access" subscription will do much, you think EA would be stupid enough to include the latest titles under that subscription plan? One year membership of $30 will let you play ALL of their latest titles? I don't think so.

    Back on topic, I don't think Sony will hit 10 Mil at end of August, I think it will hit that end of Sept.

    Yes, it's looking likely that it will.

    Who knows though, that 9mill was never addressed officially (at least by Sony afaik).

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.
