It seems like only yesterday, but the Sony PlayStation 3 was released back in 2006. That was 7 years ago. The console has sold about 80 million units since then, and we expect sales of the console to continue for a while despite the PS4 having recently been released. But Sony Thinks the PS4 will do even better.
Speaking to MCV, Sony’s Andrew House said that he believes the PS4 console will outsell the PS3, although he did not state how long he thought it would take. The PS4 is off to a great start and has managed 1 million units sold in 24 hours alone. The latest figures from Sony show that more than 2.1 million PS4 units have been sold so far. House thinks that the key is its low price point.
Many are saying that PC gaming is the future, but I disagree and in the meantime consoles are selling like hot cakes right now, so we don’t need to worry for awhile. Time will tell. He might just be correct. In any event, he is surely confident and he does know things about the consoles future games and plans that we do not.
