That's insane....and deserved. PS4 is one of the best gaming platforms i ever owned, and easily my favourite Playstation.

So, 110, maybe? Nice, third best selling console when all is set and done. Sonydomination.

At this rate 110 million by the end of 2019, but why would it stop selling by then? I can see PS4 ending up with something like 135 million or more.

PS4 exclusives Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War, Uncharted 4 and Spider Man have all sold 7-9 million copies. That’s pretty impressive.

Pretty sure the only other exclusives do to that would be the Mario games, specifically 2D Mario on Wii U and Mario Kart 8 on Wii U/Switch

The PS2 came when the PS1 was still on fire,the PS3 came when the PS2 was still on fire,in fact the PS2 outsold the xbox 360 world wide for the first 2 years,outsold the PS3 as well.

Not shocking.

Big dick Sony has been the king of video games since they entered the market with a minor slip up last gen.

3 of their 4 home consoles will have reached over 100 million sales. Nintendo has only managed that feat once with the Wii and the Xbox has 0 times.

I would say 115-120 million is a real possibility, maybe even higher by time it's life is officially over.

110 million isn't happening this year. It only sold 18 million last year, and it's sure to be down from that this year. Probably more like 105-109 million.

Very impressive numbers. I'd rather see other Marvel Super Heroes than Spiderman 2 however... if they want this Marvel Gaming Universe to be a thing.

Good for Playstation, ultimately means very little to gamers though, all that success, can count the good exclusives on 2 hands... its the 3rd best for graphics/performance , and the Switch will be a far better secondary to a PC.

Xbox360 of this gen only with no competition.

at 200$ per console i think they made decent money. giving away their hardware. thats how they sell so many consoles each gen. they send them to 3rd world countries of people with low income and price it affordably.

In the end they end up making more money because they sell enough consoles to make up for their low prices.

nintendo and sony dont really ship their consoles WW like sony does and dont discount them in the same way. Nintendo would rather like to hold its value instead of becoming a cheap item that everyone has.

oh.. and spiderman did 9 million? that's pretty good. not even as good as mario kart 8? a port from the wiiU? i guess cows got to celebrate something. but lets be real ps4 is a call of duty/madden/fifa/nba machine.

I hope that they hold off on rushing the PS5 and make it a killer console with at least 2nd gen RTX tech. Anything less than native 4k would be a no go for me.

Salty about what? Less sales than PC, less Exclusives than Switch, less performance than PC and Xbox. I even own a PS4 Pro

Lol I couldn't even look at the name anymore. I was seriously even creeping myself out. But the real reason is my wife wanted me to shut it down. She was creeped out more-------->and trust me, you don't want to creep your wife out. Or maybe I'm just whipped. Could be.

And, well, salt ain't all I've got, but I sure have a whole lot of it owing to these last few interactions with you. I can only assume you work in salt mines.

Now this is one of the most bullshit ass post i read for sometime coming out of you,you really must be 15 or 16 years old no question.

The switch is sold world wide,the xbox is sold world wide what the fu** are you smoking,since when Europe is a 3rd world country,Japan? US? Those are by far the 3 biggest markets sony has,the rest is spill milk for them.

But i am amaze at how the xbox was also $199 and somehow you single out the PS4 as been given away,the claim nintendo like to keep the value of its console high..hahahahahaa

Nintendo doesn't have the financial power sony and MS have which can take a hit on hardware and make it on software,but just so you know in this point in time the PS4 is not been sold at a loss,in fact basically on launch they were already making a profit,hell MS was losing more from selling the xbox one $500 kinect version for $449 with titanfall (3rd party game) included just 3 months after launch didn't see you cry about it.

To be fair, it's always nice to have a current-gen up-to-date console and not just PC/Nintendo console (Switch) at your dispose. Most fewer games don't come to both PC & Nintendo consoles like Kingdom Hearts & the recent RDR2 (I know it's coming to PC at a later date) are not on PC & Switch. In short, PC/Switch isn't clearly the best combo and I hate missing games I wanna play that badly. Best to have a current-gen when you really need it.

I'm gonna agree with Subspecies AKA Reduc that you went salty town.

That $199 Spidey Deal was pretty cool and looks like it sold like crazy and doubt they are not including the game bundled in the sales numbers.

However can I just point out this thread is boasting over 91 million consoles sold and 9 million Spiderman games sold. That attach rate is pretty weak sauce for such a big title. Another 1 and done and sell it used.

Happy for Insomniac and Sony as unlike you Toxic Sony Fans i don't want them to fail, and realize when gaming is healthy we all win!

Yes especially because it was during the holidays! This is not some random Sony IP, This is Marvel! This is Spiderman! The way you cows spout off you would think every PlayStation Owner has this game. Less than 1 in 10? Yes weak sauce!

Also if they are including the bundle sales a good chunk probably will never play it. There is a good reason GameStop loves PS4. you guys sell more games and buy more used games than anyone!
