PlayStation 4 Sells 5.9 Million Units Worldwide During The 2017 Holiday Season

I was wondering when this would be announced. A bit lower than I was expecting but still, this means 2017 sales were 20.2m which is incredible.

PS4 sales history:

2013: 4.2M
2014: 14.3M / 18.5M
2015: 17.4M / 35.9M
2016: 17.5M / 53.4M
2017: 20.2M / 73.6M

Interestingly, this means that Black Friday + Cyber monday weeks were 2.9m, and the other 4 december weeks in total were 3m. Those two weeks just keep getting bigger and bigger.

300k down!  

My prediction was a solid boat.  (Even though there wasn't that much to predict...)

Let's start 2018 predictions!!!

I'm predicting it'll be slightly down this year - 19m.

I expected a bit over 20m for the year... so that is it.

Those are around 86 million I think. Fun to think that PS4 will already be passing them.

But you should have known its up overall YOY anyway you silly

GameStop article made everybody thinks PS4 is down yoy too with a terrible year.

Can I just say that I'm somewhat over PS4 Hardware sales? They are great every quarter, we get it (plus with the system reaching maturity they should start going down going forward anyways). What I want from Sony is information on the sales of specific software titles.

Give me an update on Horizon, Uncharted 4, Bloodborne, tell me what GT Sport sold! Feed my need for information Sony, dang nabbit. >:(

I still like seeing the PS4 LTD number grow, but I agree that per quarter it's not too interesting anymore.

GTS actually has 3,973,649 unique profiles in gran-turismo.com (yesterday morning count).

1-999999: not working - error (I tried numbers like 1, 01, 0000001 or similar)
1000000-4973649: all valid profiles

I'm extracting them to group by country... it will take some days but I will post the results.

Yeah, not to rattle anyone but that's what I like about Nintendo's financial dates. Anyway I want to see how the most successful flop of the century(Gran Turismo Sport) did dang it!
