It is clear to see that the PS2 had the largest line-up and arguably the best one in the bunch, it also was a juggernaut in terms of sales with well over 158 million units sold.

  • PS1 – 12
  • PS2 – 30
  • PS3 – 25
  • PS4 – 21

It seems the cost of the console plays a huge part in the success, possibly more so than the amount of games released at launch. However, it is quite clear that the better the games, the more likely your console will sell.

During the PS4’s launch, Sony was smart to announce many more “Launch window” titles with Infamous Second Son releasing only six months later.

What are you expecting to be released on the launch of the PS5 in November 2020?
