“That only time can say during the console life cycle”
Ever since the advent of the current generation console cycle, Sony has been on a roll with the PlayStation 4. Recent figures indicate that Sony have already shipped more than 25 million units in less than two years since the console launched back in November 2013. Despite having a somewhat lackluster line up for this year’s holiday, the PlayStation 4 is still expected to do well sales wise.
Does this mean that it’s on track to become Sony’s best selling console, surpassing the PlayStation 2? PlayStation India boss Atindriya Bose believes that such statements are nice for comparisons but Sony’s ultimate goal is to make the console as successful as they can.
“That only time can say during the console life cycle but it’s a fantastic success and we are doing everything to make it as successful as we can but whether this is the best one or this is the best one, I don’t think these are comparisons…they are nice to talk about maybe, but we are doing everything we can to make it successful as it should,” Atindriya Bose said to GamingBolt.
He further believes that for the gamers and by the gamers focus has worked really well for Sony and PlayStation 4. “That has worked very well. Our core focus is on the gamers and our advantage of being supported by gamers have definitely stood in for good ground.”
Whether the PlayStation 4 overtakes the PlayStation 2 in terms of sales numbers is something that we will know in the coming years. For now, Sony needs some major AAA exclusives and it seems there are a ton of them coming out in 2016.
