Many games are still appearing for the PlayStation 4, but the console has long since passed its prime. The latest figures show that the PS4 has reached a real record low. So is the console finally finished?
The PS4 is a falling star
The PlayStation 4 has now been on the market for nine years, particularly noticeable in terms of sales and demand. Between January and March this year, Sony only shipped 100,000 units of the console worldwide – fewer than ever before!
The PlayStation 4 has been shipped about a million times in the last year. In 2022, Sony can be happy if the console reaches sales of 400,000 units. The market is saturated. But this development is no reason for sadness. The PS4 is an actual successful console and is currently the 4th best-selling console. With almost 117 million units sold, the PS4 is only behind the Nintendo Game Boy. The introduction of the Ps 5, however, is much more problematic. Because of the worldwide nick shortage triggered through the corona pandemic, The new sony continues to be not able to satisfy market demand. And there’s still no authentic finish around the corner.
The PS4 is not yet old-fashioned
Even though console sales have slacked off, the PS4 continues to be doing a fantastic job. New games for that outdated console may also appear this season. The big blockbusters like Elden Ring, Horizon Forbidden West, or Gran Turismo 7 operate on that old hardware. But now are developers gradually beginning to depart that old generation of consoles behind. For instance, Warner Bros. has announced the new Batman game Gotham Knights won’t launch for that Ps 4.
