The PlayStation Classic has been a hot topic in gaming right now ever since Sony’s announcement earlier this month. The upcoming mini console will include 20 pre-installed classic games, and although only five were revealed during the announcement, several fans have already pre-ordered in preparation for the launch in December.
Now, analyst Michael Patcher spoke with GamingBolt and believes that the PlayStation Classic will sell millions this holiday season, which will depend if Sony will be able to keep up with the demand.
“There has been a lot of support for the Nintendo classic hardware, so I presume Sony will see similar success,” Patcher said. “They should be able to sell ‘millions’ (around 1-2 million) without any problem if they choose to make that many. It’s priced right, and the game lineup is pretty good for that price. I wouldn’t be surprised if they sell 2-3 million this holiday and a similar number per year as long as they choose to keep manufacturing.”
There are still tons of unanswered questions surrounding the PlayStation Classic such as the rest of the games that will be available at launch. You can check out the 15 games we want to see on the PlayStation Classic here.
