As if being labeled as the “world’s biggest console launch” wasn’t enough praise, one analyst believes the early success of the PlayStation 4 indicates a strong future for the Sony system, according to a report today from VG 24/7.
"The initial success of the PlayStation 4 bodes well for its future," DFC Intelligence said. "The PlayStation 2 and Wii went on to be the best selling console systems ever. DFC Intelligence does not believe that the PlayStation 4 will surpass those systems but reiterates its forecast that the PS4 will be the No. 1 system of this generation.”
The remarks come just one day after Colin Sebastian, analyst with Robert W. Baird & Co., estimated that Sony has sold through 500,000 more PS4 units than Microsoft with the Xbox One.
Microsoft did announce this week that the Xbox One had reached the 2 million units sold mark since it’s launch in mid-November, though DFC thinks that the next-gen console’s appeal will mostly be “limited to a core demographic,” aside from its “all-in-one” features.
