2017 will easily be one of Switch’s best years, and even that couldn’t stop PS4 from breaking all its previous records. So far in 2018, PS4 is already tracking ahead of its sales last year, and nothing in Switch’s lineup this year will take away from that, with PS4’s stellar lineup. PS4 will be sitting pretty at the 100 million mark by March 2019. So good luck with that claim lol

No console sells 4 million right after Holiday Season. The start of the year is cold for video game sales. MHW sure helped, but not that much.

Actually the 76m was for SHIPPED as of December 31st. The Sold to Consumers was 73.6m as of December 31st. Official announced figures for both Shipments and Sell-Through are all available on the PS4 Wikipedia Page.
