PS4 To Sell 100 Million Units, Projects Research Firm

The NX, meanwhile, is expected to be successful too.

The PlayStation 4 is all set to continue with its extremely successful run on the market, and sell 100 million units worldwide, predicts research firm DFC Intelligence. According to DFC’s report, Sony will “command a dominant position over the next five years.”

The report covers an exhaustive range of subjects- it discusses the changing landscape of the gaming industry, as it moves from physical game sales to digital ones (half of the software sales for PS4 and Xbox One are projected to come from digital sales by 2019, according to DFC). It also discusses Nintendo’s NX- the report acknowledges that the NX is a total unknown, and so it is impossible to make any meaningful prediction about it. That said, they said that Nintendo will continue to have significant influence in the gaming industry, meaning they do expect at least a measure of success from Nintendo’s next console.

DFC also believes that VR will not have any impact, at least not in the console market.

“Overall VR is not expected to have a big impact on the console market,” the firm said. “Sony has the biggest VR play with the PlayStation VR but that is only one of several reasons why the PlayStation 4 is expected to be the leading game system over the next few years. VR could actually help the PS4 expand its audience over the next few years but it is currently not crucial to the overall forecasts as DFC is taking a conservative attitude towards the market.”

That will probably come as bad news to a lot of VR evangelists, but the medium is expected to be a long term slow burn, even by those putting out flagship products for it, so it does make sense.

      You couldn’t be any further from the truth of things…lmao.

      So I’ll speak for myself here and also some others, which are like myself:

      “This is who buys PS4:”

      1. drug dealers , because they’re clueless about tech

      ***Wrong!!!! I have never tried a drug in my life. Clueless about technology? I am a tech nut who knows pretty much everything there is to know about it.***

      2. hood rats …same as the drug dealer (they play COD and 2K…)

      ***Wrong!!!!! Sorry, no gold star for you. Do you even know what a hood rat is? If you did, then you’d realize just how stupid of a thing that was to say…***

      3. Clueless ppl , broke ppl …

      ***Wrong!!!! Clueless, that’s kind of impossible for me, being a genius and all. As for being broke, that would be unfortunate for some people, but I am very wealthy. Nice try. ***

      4. naive ppl who listen to hype from other fanboys …

      ****Wrong!!!! I’m too smart to be naive. Also I never listen to fanboys, ever.***

      Goes to show that you are probably incorrect about 99.99% of most people.
