PlayStation 4 Sales Top 50 Million

Original-Gamer-Girl-PlayStation-by-amasora-taichi

Sony is boasting that the PlayStation 4 has finally managed to sell 50 million units globally (including the recently unleashed PlayStation 4 Pro), an achievement that may well see to Sony decisively winning the latest iteration of the console wars yet again.

Black Friday apparently served as the best week for sales in the entire history of the company according to Sony, despite them releasing no actual data and some reports churlishly declaring that the Xbox One outperformed the PS4.

Sales numbers in regards to actual games has been revealed to be more than 369.6 million by way of both the PlayStation store and retail, a spectacular feat of its own.

Sony Interactive Entertainment boss Andrew House gloatingly thanked fans for their astonishing support and promised that even more marvels are planned for the future of the PlayStation brand.

Despite reveling in their accomplishments, the PS4 has still yet to outperform the PS3 when it comes to sales – the latter having topped 80 million – and only time will tell if such a target can be surpassed.

    Lol, what console war? Those things ain't even real consoles. Just PCs with a different label. Might as well stick to a real PC. Is cheaper in the long run.

    Why not just release the software, or make a PS Store application to play all the games on PC?

    because it will be disadvantages to Sony, majority of the games is being made by a 3rd party developer not Sony. and console exclusive actually Sony paid the developer to release to their consoles in order to boost their consoles sales. it's business.

    if you ask why xbox one games is seeing the light to the PC, mind if i remind you that they being made by the same company?

    yes it's cheaper if you know what you're doing.

    most people don't which is why they assume consoles are.

    It's cheaper for the delusion master racers who tell themselves that buying steam keys obtained through stolen credits by Russian mafia is still supporting the devs.

    Funniest part about master racers is they love calling everyone 'peasants' yet brag about how much cheaper PC is...

    You all are assuming Console Peasants are even capable of building an inexpensive superior PC. No point telling them, they wouldn't know where to start. That's why they are Console Peasants for life.

    Pc has the exact games consoles do, but because there are so many different cpu, gpu, and motherboards, pc games have a crap load more issues with them. With consoles developers can just focus on specific specs.

    Not true. Did you see MGS5 on PC? Is just PERFECT and WAY better than on console!

    "Pc has the exact games consoles do"
    That isn't true. Console companies sometimes pay game companies for exclusivity (at least for a time).

    "an achievement that may well see to Sony decisively winning the latest iteration of the console wars yet again."

    Globally, the PS3 pretty much tied with the Xbox 360 last generation, and both were surpassed by the Wii in terms of units sold. That wasn't exactly a "decisive win".

    This generation, it was pretty obvious from the start that the PS4 was likely to end up on top, since both Microsoft and Nintendo were clearly making some poor decisions with their consoles even before they launched, so there's no surprise if the PS4 ends up selling more. Then again, things could potentially change with the improved half-generation consoles that should be coming out soon.

    They might as well gloat now while they're pissing off fans and dreading the release of the Scorpio. Of course I'm sure releasing two new versions of the console during the holiday season didn't help.

    This disaster of a console generation will at least be interesting in how the second half ends.

    I'm happy the Xbox One is flopping, it's allowing me to pick up some cheap games. I got Dark Souls 3 new for £12 on the Xbox One for Tesco. Happy with that.
