Sony's 8th generation home console, the PlayStation 4, has hit two more milestones during Black Friday week. The PlayStation 4 has now sold more than 16 million units worldwide and more than 60 million games.

The PlayStation 4 sold 1,193,346 for the week ending November 29, 2014. That brings lifetime sales to 16,146,005 units, according to VGChartz. There has also been more than 61.8 million games sold for the Xbox One at retail.

These new milestones are up from just a week prior when the console hit 15 million units sold worldwide. The console has a shot of hitting 20 million units sold by the end of the year.

As of today it would be over 18.5M. VGchartz is too weeks behind plus they are under tracking it a bit. Super numbers.

Why do you think it's undertracked? VGChartz overtracked the PS4 by 200,000 units in November based on NPD numbers. Numbers are even bigger in Europe so it could be even more overtracked there.

"There has also been more than 61.8 million games sold for the Xbox One at retail." Sloppy, inaccurate, not proofread and jumping the gun on sales figures. I find your writing to be atrocious and unprofessional. Who cares if its free. Do it right or don't do it at all. You are embarrassing.

I think it's a typo. In the Xbox thread below this PS4 one, it says there has also been more than 34.6 million games sold for the Xbox One at retail.

I like how it;s all rays of sunshine when Sony related figures are out but when it's Xbox it's the downplay game.

That's not how it is. You just don't like positive Sony news so you get upset when you see others who are happy about it. It works both ways and your response is usually the way fanboys on both sides react.

I'm not even remotely upset, I'm just pointing out what goes on around here, for everytime there's even remotely any good news coming from Xbox there are always Sony people on here to downplay it instantly, hell looking at the recent sales article sided with the Sony one the majority comments are downplay or flagged negative.

Yeah it does work both ways, there's no denying that but I'm in no way a fanboy of either system, my primary currently is PC but I get really tired of seeing things so one sided on here, I'm not ignoring any form of downplaying from the other side but I'm noticing more downplay and spin coming from the Sony side.
