Actually rooted around and found the proper link (his was dead):

It is 53.4 million and not 54.3 million, so PS4 really did sell 20.2 million in 2017!

PS4 2017 needs to be fixed. It's 20.2M for that calendar year as Sony even said this themselves. Just do a little research on it please. This only hurts the credibility of the site when you put up fake numbers like those and disregard the actual company who sells them. If it was Nintendo or statement you would have 50 comments saying so and it would be adjusted in a hour.
Hopefully this error will be fixed so no credibility will be lost.

It's great that you're taking that author at his word, but if he didn't typo the 'cumulative sales last year' of 54.3 million, then PS4 actually sold 19.3 million in 2017. If it was actually 53.4 million instead of 54.3, then that would get you the 20.2 million.
