The PS4 is closing in on some major milestones this year. 100 million PS4's shipped and then sold(eventually) along with selling over 1 BILLION software.
The PS4 has been keeping up with the PS2 despite costing more and going up against stronger competition(Switch outsold Gamecube and Xbone outsold xbox). The PS2 also had a very deep price cut that the PS4 will likely never see. I don't expect this rapid selling pace to continue in 2019. The 5 year old PS4 somehow outsold the red-hot Switch in 2018. Selling that well means you don't really need to cut the price. I expect Sony to ride out the PS4 without a price cut until the PS5 is announced.
Edit: The PS4 is outperforming the PS2 launches aligned. I don't think it'll ever hit that 155m figure but it's on track to becoming the 2nd best selling console of all time. There's still a huge market waiting on $199 PS4s. It sold out very fast during black friday.
