The PlayStation 4 has surpassed 100 million units sold

Though the dawn of the next console generation is quickly approaching, that isn't stopping the massive sales power of the PlayStation 4 system. After just over 5-and-a-half years, Sony's PlayStation 4 has reached a milestone sales figure: 100 million units sold. The PlayStation 4 now holds the record for being the fastest home console to sell 100 million systems, taking just 5 years and 7 months, as opposed to the previous record-holder, the PlayStation 2, which sold 100 million after 5 years and 9 months. In Sony's recent sales briefing, the company also mentions that digital game sales have overtaken physical sales, with digital game purchase making up just over 50% of PS4 game sales as of June 2019. Given these sales numbers, the PlayStation 4 will likely surpass the Nintendo Wii's sales of 101.63 million sold, and become the 5th best-selling game console of all time.

I personally think it’s a flop considering the PlayStation 4’s been out since 2013! is classed as the next generation console and had two revisions next to its name.

No Xbox is a flop, almost outsold by the switch which has only been out for two years.

Yes agreed both a flop personally considering the switch has only been out since March 2017 and nearly reached half of the PS4 sales. The switch will certainly go on to be the best selling console of all time, no doubt in my mind.

I am surprised Microsoft has not realized that they need to find a blue ocean like Nintendo. Or maybe they just don't care about Xbox anymore and want to gamble on streaming in the future?

Clearly they cannot beat Sony, and Nintendo seized the handheld/console hybrid market, and they probably need to find a market where they can be the top dog.

...the company also mentions that digital game sales have overtaken physical sales, with digital game purchase making up just over 50% of PS4 game sales as of June 2019.
...which just proves that physical sales are still important, when you consider the amount of titles that don't even get physical releases anymore. I know that most of the games I've bought digitally would've been purchased physically if they'd been released as such.

...regardless - Congrats Sony! Don't fuck up the PS5 with a shitty attitude towards indies and an increasingly annoying censorship stance.

Fuck off with its claims digital sells more than physical.

What sony will be doing i bet is including psn across all its platforms and downloads that have been free.

Nice try cunts trying to push digital is the way forward.

Prime example that its not, who still enjoys playing the PT demo.... ohh yes you owned the rights to play it even after it was pulled, but sony ensured you couldnt play it after a while it would not work, and you couldnt re download it.
