New statistics show that the PlayStation 4 is one of the most popular game consoles of all time. According to Sony's recent financial results for the quarter, the PlayStation 4 has just reached a massive 102.80 million sales. This officially places the PS4 as the second highest-selling home video game console, dethroning both its progenitor, the original PlayStation, and Nintendo's massively popular Wii in one fell swoop. The only console that surpasses such high sales numbers is the PlayStation 2, which sold over 155 million units during its reign. If you factor handheld consoles into the equation, then the PS4 is only the fourth highest-selling, beaten out by the original Game Boy/Color line, and the Nintendo DS.

While attaining such a high amount of sales is impressive, it appears that as the PlayStation 4's lifespan comes to a close, sales are beginning to slowly decrease. Sony originally predicted that the console would sell 15 million units this fiscal year, but they've lowered their projections to a slightly smaller 13.5 million.

Impressive figures, for sure! Yet I never felt inclined to buy one. Maybe when they can be bought dirt cheap in pawn shops or garage sales. I wasn't impressed overall by PS3's library, and therefore never bothered to check out the PS4.

This is what happens when your competition does shit like this:

I'd blame it's initial struggles to there not being many actual "next generation" games for the system at launch. Remember how Watch_Dogs 1 was on PS3 and 360? Or both versions of MGSV being on the 7th generation consoles? Or how Assassin's Creed 4 was also a cross-generation game?

It'd be like if GTA3 and/or MGS2 was also on PS1 as opposed to being PS2 exclusives at the time!
