Ya know, you keep sprouting about how modern gaming is bad and stuff, you need to play some Japanese games before you judge them.

Something tells me when you say Japanese, you really mean weeby/otaku shit.

Isn't PS5 something like 3m units behind PS4 at the same point in its life cycle? I'm amazed that the gap is so small to be honest considering the huge restraints faced by the industry now and for the foreseeable future. I do wonder if PS5 will top the lifetime sales of PS4 because of this. I think if not for the current circumstances it likely would, but it's difficult to see it happening now. I think it will come relatively close though, probably at least 100m units sold overall.

 

I also wonder if this will be an unusually long console generation because of these supply issues. The third year of a console generation is typically the most successful in terms of units and games sold, so if supply is still an issue at that point we might end up seeing a longer life cycle. Maybe not. Either way I hope these supply issues get sorted sooner rather than later.

He doesn't understand that Japan encompasses all kinds of genres, not just JRPGs like Final Fantasy or visual novels, which I've done a few of. Yakuza is a Japanese franchise. Gran Turismo is a Japanese franchise, even though the racing series appeals greatly to western people like myself.

 

You can say I haven't played enough Dark Souls and so forth, but I have plenty on my profile that came out of Japan. Also, Sony is still technically Japan, even though we have Ryan of Sony of America and all that.

Ya know, I am starting to agree with @Infected Elite about your Jim Ryan problem. What did Jim Ryan and Sony ever do to you, huh? And don't give me that they don't care about the gamers crap. Sounds to me you have issues with Sony and Jim Ryan that is unhealthy.

As of March 2022, Sony has sold 19.3 million PS5 consoles.

Sony is looking to target selling 18 million more PS5's for fiscal year April 2022 through March 2023, almost doubling the number of PS5 consoles already sold.

 

So it's 19 million in 1.5 years (or slightly less).

And the plan is 18 more in 1 year.

 

This tells me they expect the chip shortage to start to die down in this timeframe.

 

Some analysts predict that the situation will stabilize around the end of 2022 - beginning of 2023.

Lovely. It's good news to hear that many people can get PS5's on their own.

Yep, I've managed to get 4. Mine on launch, sisters about a month ago. Two Friends on boxing day after launch. 

 

Thing is, if people want one bad enough they will put in the effort to get one. 

 

If a ps5 pro happens, I'll get that too just cause i can.

Let Caj keep whining and having his unhealthy obsession with Jim Ryan.

A PS5 Pro when the PS5 is barely worth it as-is, and completely not worth it if you get a digital only version lol

how isn't it worth it? you don't like gaming in 4k? sure some games are ps4 as well but they don't look good. Or can you just not afford it?

 

Digital only version shouldn't exist lol even for Xbox

why not?

 

I have a physical PS5 and never used a disc

 

my entire library (hundreds of PS4 games) are all digital

 

I've been all digital since around 2010 (except of course for those PS3 games that were only released on disc. I had to buy those)

 

u can stream movies in 4k

 

maybe u don't have good internet? or u need to rely on second hand sales to buy/sell games?

Because the games aren't there. I've had one for a long time and waiting for true PS5 exclusives is becoming exhausting

 

The thing is a PS4 emulator that I use primarily to play my disc games on

i have great internet. I also dont need to rely on second hand sales lmao. I'm pretty wealthy. I do have a large library of physical media, as is why i went with disc version, and also if friends wish to borrow games, they can. Instead of buying it for themselves. To each their own but i prefer physical. 

 

@Deadly_Ha_Ha fair statement.

 Its been annoying how quiet Sony has been in regards to summer and fall releases. So much is just "2022".

I still think they would have had more PS5 exclusives if it wasn't for covid. They pulled some BS that they want everyone to enjoy their games so most games like Forbidden West and Ragnarok would also be available on ps4. Which annoyed me.
