Indeed. The second best selling home console in history. Incredible software numbers. And PSN became a money making juggernaut during the PS4's lifetime. It's been a good run.

This is amazing and awesome. I remember at the beginning of the 8th generation so people thought consoles were gonna die or become less popular because of smartphone gaming. Boy they were wrong as PS4 is likely going to become the 3rd bestselling system ever and already is the 2nd greatest-selling home console ever, the Switch is also selling at an unprecedented rate becoming one of the fastest-selling systems of all time. If anything console gaming has grown this generation which many people didn't see coming in the age of the smartphone,

I see the PS4 selling between 125M-130M when all said and done, which are incredible sales. It likely won't catch the DS or PS2, but potentially selling 130M is insane for a console. I'm interested to see if Switch could surpass it, but I find it less likely since Nintendo consoles usually don't have a lifespan as long as PS since Nintendo quickly focuses on their successor.

On pace to outsell the combined sales of the Game Boy and Game Boy Color by this holiday season or at the very least the end of the fiscal year.

Well deserved. If you treat consumers well, provide a solid, compelling product at the right price and provide the masses the games they want to play... You get rewarded with a historic sales success.
