PS4 on track to 'reproduce PS2 & Wii level of success', according to report
PS4 will have a global install base of 80 million units by 2019, compared to 57 million for Xbox One, research firm Strategy Analytics has estimated in its Connected Home Devices Report, as reported by GamesIndustry.
As reported by GamesIndustry, the firm says that the PS4 is "on path to reproduce the success of the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Wii".
As for the Wii U, Strategy Analytics says the system is "staging a modest comeback" thanks to strong first-party software.
"Despite reports to the contrary, the game console market is not dead," said Strategy Analytics senior analyst Eric Smith. "Core gamers have moved faster to this current generation than in any previous generation. The main difference in this generation is that casual gamers who bought a Wii are remaining largely on the side lines as free-to-play casual games and midcore games on tablets and smartphones have captured this segment of consumers."
