Lgndary Thoughts - How To Keep PS4 Sales Up


Sony announced that the PS4 has surpassed 60 million in sales worldwide, with 2016 being the systems best year so far. But Sony has stated that they expect sales to start declining in 2017. While I believe that is a natural assumption to make, as all consoles slow down at some point, it isn't set in stone. So having said that, let’s discuss what Sony could do this year to really push even higher sales numbers. Welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!

A rumor has been making the rounds the past couple of days stating that Sony has struck a deal with Capcom to get Monster Hunter 5 on PS4. I personally believe the rumor is fake, but it would have some serious implications if it were true. Monster Hunter is an insanely popular series in Japan, the place the PS4 has struggled the most, so if Monster Hunter 5 really were to be an exclusive, system sales in Japan would sky rocket. It might even be what it takes for the PS4 to surpass the PS2 in sales. But like I said, there is no reason to believe that rumor and I would be shocked if it came true. 

Coming back to reality, I believe one of the best things Sony can do to keep PS4 sales up is something they have been very successful at in recent years. Having a constant stream of quality first party titles. Bloodborne, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and The Last Guardian (just to name a few) are the kind of system sellers that they need to keep pumping out. Detroit and God of War give me a lot of hope for the future, as long as they keep the quality up. 

The final aspect of the PS4 that I think Sony needs to focus on is the system itself. Microsoft has done an excellent job at updating the Xbox One on a regular basis, and I think it is time Sony does the same. We go months and months in-between system updates, and most of them end up being fairly lackluster. More dedication needs to be placed in PS4 system updates, and they need to start getting creative and thinking outside the box if they want to stay competitive in that space.

The PS4 has been an incredible success story, but that success doesn't have to stop anytime soon. These are just a few of the things I believe will keep it selling well into the future. What do you think? Be sure to let me know what you think Sony can do with the PS4 to keep those sales numbers up!
