PS1 shipped 30 million units after PS2 was released
PS2 shipped 50 million units after PS3 was released
Idk why Sony doesn’t just drop the price to $200 already. It’s already been proven by Sony themselves that there’s a huge market for budget consumers who would more easily hop on board to a console at that price. PS4 could easily move about at least 20 million units sooner at that cost.
No excuse for a 7 year old console to still be sold at a premium price that’s even within a mere $100 price difference of its successor.
