    When it comes to high-selling video game systems, what pops up in most people's minds are likely the PlayStation 2, the Nintendo DS, and of course, the Nintendo Wii. Now that the most recent financial results have been reported, we can see that Sony's PlayStation 4 is closing in on 100 million units sold, with the PS4 selling a grand total of 96.8 million since the system's launch in 2013. 17.8 mil PlayStation 4s were shipped throughout all of 2018, showing a slight decline in sales compared to last year as it reaches the end of its lifespan, while hype begins to build for the upcoming "PlayStation 5". As of April 2019, the PlayStation 4 is the sixth highest selling video game console of all time, sitting just below the Nintendo Wii's 101.6 million, and above its predecessor, the PlayStation 3, which reached 87.4 million. Sony's company analysts project that around 16 million more PS4s will be sold within 2019, and if that expectation is managed, then that'll put the PlayStation 4 above both the PS1 and the Wii, in terms of sales.

    Do you expect the PlayStation 4 to surpass the Nintendo Wii's total sales? With such a successful console on their hands, Sony has a lot to live up to, as they plan for the future and their next home console.

    Last of us part II and death stranding will easily carry the ps4 above the 100 million mark, and as with all of Sony's previous consoles longer support
    for the system might actually bring it into the top 3.

    When you think that it will still sell for another 3 years from now easily, you've got to think it will go past the 125 million mark easily enough in total.

    It will surely only end up behind the DS and the PS2 in total.

    with the ps5 being hardware backward compatible, I'd image ps4 games will still be developed and ps4 will still be produced for a while after the ps5 is released. So yeah, easily done. go sony.

    I made a graph the other day (shameless plug, I am going to post it for a third time) and analyzing this graphs I am confident that the PS4 might surpass the PS2 and turn into the most sold console of all time when it reaches EoL. And that was totally unexpected for me before recollecting data and analyzing trends.

    Well, they expect to send 16M this 2019FY, so 102m are "easy" to beat, but in 2020 and later who knows, maybe with 2 more years of support until 2022, they can reach 120M at the end.

    As a Nintendo fanboy this angers me.
    Jokes aside though As we all know successful Sony has been with it's consoles it would not be a surprise if they won the console war with the ps5 at all.
