Fresh News


Japanese analytical company Rakuten, predicted about a month ago sales of PlayStation 5 at 200 million consoles, has adjusted its forecast upward. After taking a closer look at the hype around the system and analyzing industry trends, the experts released a material in which they indicated that 5th PlayStation could sell up to 300 million copies in the next 5-6 years, and at the end of your life cycle and completely find order 700 million buyers

Previously, no console was sold like this. Only two specialized gaming devices in history have hit the 150 million mark. Playstation 2 and Nintendo DS

So what should propel the PlayStation 5 so far?

Analysts believe that, in addition to Sony exclusives and the relatively low cost of the set-top box, the actively growing esports movement can contribute to sales.… Today the term “esports” is consonant with “gaming PC”, but Rakuten predicts a transformation of this segment.

Esports players, aspiring eSports athletes and viewers need fast hardware capable of running modern games and video processing. The PlayStation 5 has all this, it is noted in the material, and it is also inexpensive compared to gaming PCs.

“The PlayStation 5 has great specs, low price, it can run modern games. There is a chance that it will become the new standard device for esports in the world instead of PCs,” – says the material.

“In the future, the number of PlayStation 5 sold could reach 600 million or 700 million, which is 4-5 times more than the PlayStation 2. If Sony can move its audience from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, which has received backward compatibility, that’s already 120 million people. Another 100 million are people involved in esports. 400 million are viewers of esports events. That’s more than 600 million people. The PlayStation 5 market could clearly be wider than the 100 million mark. ”

Experts write that if Sony plays the card right, the PlayStation 5 will become as coveted for esports fans as a new pair of Nike shoes are for NBA fans.

“The PlayStation 5 is headed to a completely different dimension. It’s not Xbox, Switch, or even PS4. PlayStation 5 could become the real Terminator of the gaming industry, putting an end to the protracted war in the console market once and for all“.

Speaking directly about games, experts pointed out that Xbox exclusives cannot be compared with PlayStation 5 exclusives and games from Sony’s studios in particular. For a hardcore audience of gamers, this is an important point.

In Russia, the new Sony console will debut on November 19, 2020.
