How many PS4s will Sony be able to sell? According to Lewis Ward, an analyst at IDC, the Japanese manufacturer should be able to reach this magnificent milestone in 2019, given that sales already exceed 70 million copies at the time of writing these lines. On the other hand, there will be a lot to do to match the colossal figure of the PlayStation 2 and its 157 million units sold.
This is of course an analyst’s guess, but when you consider how good the momentum printed since the launch of the console is, there is little doubt that the PS4 will certainly exceed 100 million one day. especially since the PS4 Pro is pulling sales up in its own way.
In another register, Lewis Ward reckons PS5 and next-gen Xbox won’t arrive until 2021. This statement is debatable, however, given that at this time we don’t really know how much importance the two manufacturers want to give to their mid-cycle consoles (PS4 Pro and Xbox One). If they want to capitalize on the long term with these machines and then release a “real” next-gen, then 2021 is indeed plausible.
On the other hand, if the average gap in console renewals is maintained, the next generation should arrive in 2019 / 2020 instead, but in this case, the technical gap between the two generations will not be very large, and could frustrate users. players. In any case, it is possible that the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X will be compatible (or partially compatible) with the future generation, so that publishers have a console fleet that is already substantial when it is marketed.
In short, the only thing we are sure of is that the 8th generation (PS4, Xbox One) is in many respects quite exceptional both in terms of sales and the quality and density of games available on it. This is good news for video games at large.
