Should mean they have a lot of money to play with for PS5...right?
Be interesting to know how many people won't be renewing as a result. My current subscription ends December and at this time, not bothered about renewing it.


I was going to renew my subscription on firing up GT Sport this evening, but seeing so much more offline content has been added since I last played said game I decided not to. For now at least. I use Xbox for the brunt of my online gaming and it's a tenner cheaper.

Outsold both the PS3 and 360 (approx 84m each) in less than 5 years.

Next milestone is Wii at 101m

I suspect PS5 will have been announced before PS4 hits that Wii figure so gamers will have all eyes on that.

With PS4 still selling this well despite hardly any price drops, I see no reason for this.

That's the amazing thing. Been expecting a significant price drop for a couple of years now, but they just haven't needed one.

The PlayStation! How mighty its aspect! How far-reaching its boundaries! As one console dies ten more are brought into the fold. Fear us, for we count the lives of units, not men!

:lol:

I just can't help but imagine Nick waking up each morning, kneeling before his PS4 (polished daily, on a golden pedestal) and reciting the daily pledge of allegiance to spread the Good Word of Its Glory to the heretical masses so that the whole world can be cleansed in Its glorious light. Then he cuts his hand and squeezes some blood onto the console, and then his mum comes in and shouts about the mess.

7.6 Billion people have decided that the PS4 is so gooseberry fool they don't want it :capnscotty: .

Sony should take a moment to think about that.

At least I now know that it's not only me that does that. No mother to moan about the mess though.

Why they're not at E3:

You're not the first big company to bow out of the big E3 video game show in June, but I'm curious why you chose this year to drop out?

When we decided to take video games out of CES, back in 1995 during the PlayStation 1 era, E3 served two constituencies: retailers and journalists.

Retailers would come in -- you'd see a guy come in, and he'd say, "I'm from Sears, and I handle Hot Wheels, Barbie, VHS and video games. So what are you about?" There was a huge educational component.

Then you had journalists who had magazines and lead time and jockeying for position on the cover. And there was no internet to speak of. So a trade show at that time of year for this nascent industry was exactly what we needed to do.

Now we have an event in February called Destination PlayStation, where we bring all retailers and third-party partners to come hear the story for the year. They're making purchasing discussions in February. June, now, is just too late to have a Christmas holiday discussion with retailers.

So retail has really dropped off. And journalists now, with the internet and the fact that 24/7 there is game news, it's lost its impact around that.

So the trade show became a trade show without a lot of trade activity. The world has changed, but E3 hasn't necessarily changed with it.

And with our decision to do fewer games -- bigger games -- over longer periods of time, we got to a point where June of 2019 was not a time for us to have a new thing to say. And we feel like if we ring the bell and people show up here in force, people have expectation "Oh, they're going to tell us something."

We are progressing the conversation about, how do we transform E3 to be more relevant? Can E3 transition more into a fan festival of gaming, where we don't gather there to drop the new bomb? Can't it just be a celebration of games and have panels where we bring game developers closer to fans?

I think that's the first time I've heard of Destination PlayStation :?
