If you’re a console user and haven’t seen more than two generations arrive, those of us who have been around a bit longer can easily say we are facing the most extraordinary and odd generation of all who have lived. We think of the apocalypse, the apocalypse, the apocalypse, or the apocalypse of the 1980s, the 90s, the 2000s, the 2010s. The entry to the PS5 and Xbox Series X storyline with S was one of the strangest and most precipitous that we ever see will ever be, where old machines continue to receive hundreds of new ones, despite their more than obvious and irremediable decline. Now what the heck is this mess?
Indeed, the first reason we can use to explain what happened is related to the pandemic and, more specifically, the consecration of that impact: almost zero drop in activity, difficult preparation and manufacturing the necessary components at a good pace and a refusal by Sony and Microsoft to delay the launch of their next generation. It was a big decision in the studios. Do we only work for new material or do we still support old stuff?
Look at the sales figures for 2019-2020 and think about what’s happening here. The PS4, the one that really matters for the generation that went on sale in 2013, has remained well above the others in 2020, isn’t strange and has precedents like this NES, which was the best-selling console at Christmas 1992, even though Super Nintendo was already in store.
As you can see above, it wasn’t until 2021 when the PS5 overtook PS4 worldwide sales. This is already an indicator that the next generation, he is working as a logic force to prevail. To be sure, this routine didn’t happen to something that we have always seen repeated throughout the history, namely the decline in sales of the old generation it would really affect her release schedule. The PS4 continues to enjoy new features, especially during that time, that were barely limited to Fifa in service and, if you call for us, at the Call of Duty filleding.
Differences between 4 and 5 of the PS4.
We can see how the PS4 sales will compare with those of the PS5 for the years 2013-2014 and 2015, but not last year. While Sony will close this 2022 with just over ten million units soldPlayStation 4 did it at the time above 15, with no issues with Stock and a strong demand that has yet been generated on a market with a powerful PS3 presence.
Let’s look at the news that the latest for the old and the new things such as the Pandemic or the other crises that were unleashed in the world over the past two years, but now we are moving towards a market that abounds wildly in the two futures – and the future can hardly wait a while, as it is.
