    35.9 million it’s not even funny no more, sony might see 45 by the end of the year, Microsoft might see 20 million finally, it’s good all around

    Waiting for all of the ‘Sony fangirl crew to come in to praise and defend the lie about sales again … this fuels them , they love hype and propaganda

    • DarkSeptember

      Yet again your stupidity shines through. Sony has shareholders to answer to , they HAVE to have proof of these sales , they can’t simply say we sold X millions of PS4’s and expect shareholders to just believe it.
      You really need to control your very childish anger.

  • Truth™

    Only sony gives you the choice of 900P or sub 30FPS versions of games that are superior on PC. #4ThePayers

    PC always wins, baby. PS4 is just going to be a laughing stock like the 360 was after CES 🙂

      No, not all PC gamers. Only the weirdo insecure/loner bunch who don’t realise there’s great games on PC AND Consoles and exclusives are where you find them, you can’t wish them on to your top spec PC just cos you have one.

      The laughing stock I see here buddy is you.

    Very impressive and I think it is well deserved success. I’m looking forward to the new year of games and the new year of enjoyment in making the lying Microsoft loyalist and lying PC drone very upset over the proconsumer truth.

  • 49ers fan

    I’m really at a loss as to why the PS4 is so popular. I guess it’s just herd mentality…..

    Glad to hear they did well.
