Congratz PS4 may there be many more sales since I love home consoles!


LivingMetal (on 25 November 2015)

I'm already building my library of PS4 games BEFORE I've bought the console. So when I finally get mine, it will be even greater.


OneKartVita (on 25 November 2015)

Do you have ps plus? If so you could have a lot of games!

Wow PS4 is such a beast. Congrats Sony.

Who's buying this thing? Or should I say who isn't buying it? Wow!

Be careful with what you say, time will prove you wrong. This includes certain so called "analysts" Sony is going bankrupt: They managed to overcome the PS3 launch and now dominate the consoles market. Consoles are dead: Yet they are now selling faster than ever. PC is irrelevant: Steam sales haven't been this high in any other gen. This proves that the market is expanding, and that is something people and analysts failed to predict.

Always has to be some jerk in the comments, I guess.

"The 30.2 million PS4 owners around the world are spending more time playing games and enjoying entertainment content as the company further enriches content and services."

SamLeheny (on 25 November 2015)

Sony's certainly been behaving better than Microsoft has lately, for whatever that's worth.


Seventizz (on 25 November 2015)

How?

Glad to see all the consoles selling well. And people thought consoles were dead!


Chazore (on 25 November 2015)

Who said they were?, I thought people said that a lot when it came to PC's.

I remember them there were a lot of people making that claim before this generation started and now the ps4 is selling ahead of the ps2.

Note: Wow that's a lot of fish.

The amount of downvotes towards both me and Mountain is extremely telling, it just goes to show that people more often claim that PC gaming is dying because that has been said for so many years, someone in an extreme minority claims console gaming is somehow dying (it isn't) and it's apparently amounted to being the same size of treatment PC gamers got for years on end. This site welcomes no one that isn't a fan of Playstation though.

I've had 3 Sony consoles go ignored while I played something else much more. Not buying something I know I wouldn't use. And before you friggin ban me for three days or edit my post VG, this is my honest truth. The sony bias on this site is out of control.

Who are you and why are we supposed to care whether or not you buy PlayStation consoles? Also, the whining about bias is relevant to this article how?

hershel_layton (on 25 November 2015)

It's your opinion, not "the truth". If you don't like a console, cool. Just don't whine-it get's annoying hearing people complain a console they aren't forced to play.

The Wii U, Playstation, Xbox, and all other gaming consoles/devices have their flaws and strengths. There's no "truth" on which one's the best- gaming is fun because of the variety of ways to play
