Not cool dude, not cool at all. Lems are on suicide watch and this news are just too much for them to handle

@charizard1605: ummm wouldn't a PS "4" be considered a refresh of same line then too?

The PS4 is a completely different product, different hardware, different software, different everything. The iPhone 5S runs the same hardware and software as iPhone 5. You are arguing that the PS3, the PS3 Slim, and the PS3 Super Slim were different products. Or that the Gameboy, Gameboy Pocket, and Gameboy Color were different products. They weren't.

That accursed Floppy_Jim, always posting before reading the OP properly. The man is a damned reprobate and has to be stopped before he does it again.

But yes, this has been an interesting read.

Indeed, I was surprised at the results myself

It's not spin, it's plain and simple fact. Software that runs on an iPhone 5S runs on an iPhone 4. Software that runs on a DSi runs on a DS. Software that runs on a Gameboy Color runs on a Gameboy. Software that runs on a PS4 does not in any circumstances run on a PS3.

its not FACT the ps4 is the fastest selling everything ever. You created wonky criteria for what qualifies in your OP. That's a spin mane

Also pretty sure plenty of software that runs on PS4 also runs on PS3

I did some research, and the PlayStation 4 is the fastest selling anything released, ever. No other consumer electronic has ever sold faster than the PlayStation 4 has*. This includes not only other consoles, such as the Wii and PS2, or handhelds such as the Nintendo DS, but also highly regarded and amazing selling consumer electronic devices such as iPod, iPhone, and iPad. The PlayStation 4 is beating everything.

For comparison's sake, I will be comparing the sales of all these products five months into their release (which is where the PlayStation 4 currently stands). The results are truly amazing:

Before we proceed, here are several caveats:

  • Where possible, I tried to use exact comparisons. Since five months is such an odd unit (companies report in units of three) in many cases, it became impossible to gain an accurate picture by using quarterly reports; in that case, total cumulative sales at the end of the nearest quarter since launch were taken, divided by the total number of months since launch, and then multiplied by 5 (such as for Wii, sales at the end of its third quarter {the first finished quarter after its fifth month on the market} were 9.27 million. 9.27/7*5=6.62 million)
  • For a lot of these products, the launches were staggered (such as for the PS2). In this case, the date of the earliest launch was treated as the product launch.

Given all of this, it's amazing the rate at which the PS4 is selling- seven million in just five months is a lot! It's more than any other system, any other stand alone consumer electronic product, has ever achieved!

Take a bow, Sony. You deserve your success this time around. You really, truly do.

* Peripherals, accessories, and software bundles may have sold faster, but they don't count- for instance, an argument can be made that the Kinect (w/ Kinect Adventures), Wii Balance Board (w/ Wii Fit), and Wii Wheel (w/ Mario Kart Wii) may have sold faster, but as they are supplements to existing products, and not standalone products, they are not comparable.

** The PlayStation 2 had only launched in Japan at the end of this period.

So you did no research because the only thin you looked up not a game console was the I-products. So you took no time at all on any research.

Yes because not posting anything about the others automatically means that he didn't research them right?

Also important is the fact that outside of gaming consoles, iProducts are the highest selling consumer electronic products, so if something is outselling them, it's also outselling everything else by extension.

Which is incorrect. The freaking RAZR V3 outsold the first Iphone in the same time frames, what are you on?

Sure, stop talking out of your ass and give me the link, and I'll put it in the OP.

Heck, the Galaxy SII

I even gave you a name, I guess you put no effort in research after all eh? Lol, Galaxy SII sold 10 its first 6 months. But you gotta cut out the winners to make hallucinations though.

Lol, let's be honest here, do you really really believe that listing only 3 I-products with 3 consoles is enough to say the PS4 outsells everything? I mean I will give you the benefit of the doubt and pretend you were trolling when you said I=products where the best selling since that is clearly not true even in press releases.

Now, yes. We are however assessing each product from launch.

By nitpicking and pretending things don't exist. (odd how not many others think this and why there are news websites doing odd comparisons of things that sold more, but apparently they are wrong, the PS4 actually sold more so their comparisons are invalid because Charizard.)

#77 Posted by nep321a (60 posts) -

I like the PS4, but this analysis is seriously flawed and meaningless. You're comparing the 4th iteration of a hardware line with the 1st iterations of certain hardware. In other words, why are you comparing the PS4 with the iPhone 1? Why not compare it with the iPhone 5 or the latest iPad or whatever?

Hang on, now we're talking about software? Hardware wise, I think you can consider the iPhone 5s a new model as it uses a different chip compared to the 5.

Indeed, also we have to accept the fact that the first iteration of a product is a make or break for it. Who knew if the original iPhone would take off, I see it as unfair to compare the first gen iPhone against an 4th gen model of the defacto home console standard.

SONY is on a ROLL guys. It just goes to show what living by the by gamers for gamers mantra and coupling it with the Live, Learn and Love lifestyle can do fo you. On the other side, MS tried to change the industry on their own, being greedy, self centered and only concerned about themselves and not the gamer.

Bookmarked for future lessons that need to be taught.

They're going to be low. It's clear all the r-tards are buying them at full price now for some reason instead of waiting for price drops and games.

haha

yeah me too guys. i haven't bought a ps4 yet, and won't be until the library's more appealing (if it ever appeals).

not really too bothered by the other discussion in the thread about the truth to this 'fastest selling' claim, but 7M is somethin'.

@charizard1605: Well I'm very happy for Sony. I purchased my PS4 at launch so I'm glad that I was able to support Sony in this war. And considering the economy and the fact that people aren't spending as they use to be I have to say that this will maybe be in the Guiness World Record book. I was kind of shocked that I saw a PS4 on the shelf at Walmart the other day. I'm sure it's gone by now. :)

At the fact that it's outpacing stuff like the iPad? Definitely, yeah.

Personally i think stuff from Apple is way overpriced. Sure it's great, but just too expensive to what you can get with other operating systems or other companies

I completely disagree, but that's a discussion for some other place.

True, but that's just my opinion from a random it student :)

#95 Posted by AutoPilotOn (7974 posts) -

@charizard1605:

I don't agree with that reasoning at all. It's a new product. It may be backward compatible but it's an upgrade. So you'd rather them all run on seperated os with each release?

But anyways the ps4 is definitely selling well even beating sonys expectations

#96 Posted by TrappedInABox91 (466 posts) -

Impressive. But do these PS4 owners have any games to play? You know... The whole point to a gaming console?

#97 Edited by Midnightshade29 (5238 posts) -

Must be the greatest thing ever. Sales equal quality.

Well you did say in the other thread earlier today: "The most popular games are the best" .... which I lol'd at... You couldn't be more far from the truth on that one... but as far as consoles go. PS4 did everything right at the right price, and after the 360 was barren for 3 years from exclusives, and the 2013 e3...

The most sales doesn't necessarily mean the best, as was the case last gen, with the wii outselling everything, and the cods outselling everything....

In the case of the ps4...it is the best.. but on merits of hardware specs, price, and company gamer focus attitude.
