Barring a holiday miracle, the PlayStation 4 is poised to win 2014. Despite some missteps along the way, Sony been hard at work cementing its lead over the competition since the beginning of the year, and according to Digitimes, that trend will continue throughout 2015. The Digitimes Research Tracking team expects that Sony will ship 14 million units in 2015, bringing the cumulative shipments to 31.5 million by the end of the year.
There will be 14 million PlayStation 4 (PS4) consoles shipped globally in 2015 to reach cumulative shipments of 31.5 million units and 11 million Xbox One consoles to reach 23.7 million units, according to Digitimes Research. Wii U shipments in 2015 will be two million units to reach cumulative shipments of 10.29 million falling behind those of PS4 and Xbox One. Xbox One shipments have been less-than-expected and Microsoft is taking actions to drop pricing for the device as part of its strategy to compete. PS4 meanwhile is extending its influence by offering PlayStation Vue services, of which Microsoft is showing signs of adopting similar services in the future, added Digitimes Research.
