Considering that the market in Japan are mainly interested in handhelds, that's very good. Too bad software sales are ridiculously bad.

Hopefully the hardware numbers doesn't drop in the coming weeks.

Not quite, it's actually travelling at 99.5% the speed of light. So by the time it's been on the market 10 years we'll have actually experienced about 8 more generations of PlayStation as time is now moving slower for the PlayStation 4. It's a very unique situation for a console to be in actually. It'll allow Sony in about 120 years to update the PlayStation 4 with a firmware update that takes into consideration 8 generations of software updates. Impressive stuff.

The PlayStation 2 console was and is still the highest selling console in our observable universe, so by the time, PS4 reaches its 10 year frame of marketing; I think it will be close to the speed of light, even if it can't beat the total sales, i.e. 'crown status' of PlayStation 2.

I don't think it will overtake PS2. Back then, it was just PS2 and whichever console Nintendo had out. Now we have PS, Xbox, Wii and a lot of handhelds competing on the market

Xbox existed during the ancient days of the PS2. People seem to forget that it was one of the few times since the 80's early 90's where there where 4 competitors, Sega (they didn't last long), Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft.

True, but Dreamcast flopped and the Xbox didn't really get any love till the end of the gen when you could chip it for emulators. Then MS decided it was a great idea to stop selling Xbox games when the 360 came out so that boosted more PS2 sales

I agree but the market is fairly split now. Nintendo and sony were the kings back then and xbox was just starting. Ignoring current sales because of the price difference, xbone and ps4 are pretty much evenly split and the exclusives will make your mind up which one you want
