This is just getting absurd.. If they blow past 10M by E3, we're going to have to stop comparing it to the PS2 because it will be taking on a life of its own.

I don't think they'll have a choice. Third party publishers are going to want to hit hard and fast. 6 million consoles in 4 months is a very hungry population waiting for hit titles.

EA must be absolutely kicking themselves right now.

seems like it's climbing pretty slow considering it's more available now. i wonder if it will jump up in april when the supply is good.

lol my expectations would be that it would go faster because it's more available but it might also be because it's not the holiday season anymore and so this is probably normal.

I honestly don't see how you are seeing the PS4 climbing slow at this point. They've already announced over 6 million units and that is well over the 6 million mark and I still don't see it slowing down.

oh yea, i'm sure it's climbing pretty well. my comment was that i was for some reason expecting it to shoot up once it was more available. but then it was during winter so that should be expected.

With Infamous and MGS5: GZ dropping this month and Driveclub possibly coming out in April, you can just forget supply being normal.

i definitely think that will help. especially if the supply is normalized by then.

The supply doesn't stand a chance of being normal this month. Not a snowball's chance in hell.

PS4 has sold through to consumers more than 5.9 million units*1 during the 2017 holiday season.

PS4 has now cumulatively sold through more than 73.6 million units*2 globally as of December 31, 2017.

More than 55.9 million*3 PS4 games were sold during the 2017 holiday season in retail stores worldwide and through digital downloads on PlayStation®Store. This totals up to 645.0 million copies*4 cumulatively sold as of December 31, 2017.
Down from last years 6.5m during the holidays but up YOY(Jan-Dec) by 2.7m.

Yup, I'd have thought that too. I know there were some supply issues with MS struggling to keep up with demand. Don't know whether that would have had much of a material effect or not tbh
There were no supply issues in stores. Amazon sold out a couple of times iirc but they were back in stock shortly afterwards.

MS expected to take the month. The S was cheaper and in stock longer than the $199 ps4. The X had over a years worth of hype and positive press. MS even bragged about it being the fastest xbox preorder ever.

I think there might be some "rebound effect" on those sale numbers. I feel like some people might have been restraining from purchasing their ps4 on 2016 knowing that Nintendo and Microsoft had to release their own consoles, then those were released on 2017 and they were like "nah, I still rather get the ps4".

Today Sony disclosed its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, related to the period between October 1st and December 31st.

As usual, the announcement included an update on PS4 shipments. 9 million PS4 units reached retailers during the quarter, meaning that the grand total of lifetime shipments was at 76.5 million units by December 31st.

While PS4 shipments were 0.7 million lower than during the equivalent quarter in fiscal year 2016, actual revenue was considerably higher (with a 16.2% growth) due to an increase in software sales, including sales on PlayStation Network.

Do they continue after the profits or do they cut the price and flood the market throughout the entire 2018 holiday season? We won't find out until the next quarter. Sony has huge AAA exclusives dropping this year along with major AAA 3rd party deals. Sony is in one hell of a position to ride into next generation with the gas pedal floored.
