‘PlayStation 4 is by far best-selling console in the Netherlands’




The PlayStation 4 is the best selling console in the Netherlands. The Sony console sales late in the Xbox One and Nintendo Wii behind. How big is the lead of the new PlayStation, is unknown.

Market research firm GfK says only that the console sales in the fourth quarter of 2014 will be higher than 55 percent in 2013, but does not mention the percentage market shares of the various consoles. Commenting says consultant Yvette Westerbaan GfK that the distance is significant. “The PS4 is really by far the best-selling console.” The Xbox One seems to occupy the second place, while the Wii U still stands behind it.

On the market for handhelds, the situation is different. “There Nintendo is still a great player,” said Westerbaan. “But what do you want, besides the Nintendo handhelds we see only the PS Vita and PSP.” Exact figures makes GfK unknown, because it makes money by selling such data.

Handheld Makers earn less in the Netherlands. According Westerbaan is that the rise of tablets. “The relationship is not something that we are investigating, but we will handle it.” Meanwhile are there around 7.9 million tablets in the Netherlands, although now decreased sales.

The figures from GfK also shows that about 4 percent of TVs sold is an associate professor model, reports nu.nl. The number of models with curved screen was 1.6 percent. The market share of OLED TVs is partly due to the high price negligible.
