Playstation 4 will sell around 49 million units and Xbox One will sell around 38 million units by end of 2017, according to prediction from analyst firm IHS.
“IHS believes that Sony’s wider geographical brand allegiance – especially across continental Europe and Japan – will be decisive in allowing PS4 to outsell Xbox One on a global basis by the end of 2017.”
“We also believe that both Sony and Microsoft will continue to benefit from Nintendo’s Wii U weak sales, with some past Wii users adopting the latest consoles instead of upgrading to Wii U.”
“IHS forecasts that Sony will sell-through 49 million PS4 consoles by the end of 2017, with Microsoft managing a smaller, but significant, amount of 38 million Xbox One consoles in the same time frame.”
Playstation 4 will arrive on November 15 in North America and on November 29 in Europe.
