Sony have topped worldwide sales of video game consoles for the first time in eight years, pipping struggling rival Nintendo and signalling the Playstation manufacturer's comeback.
Nice going Sony.
Netural Gaming Force come we got ourselves a flamebait! OT: PS4 is selling more than Xbox 1 that's why this article was created.
I would've waited an eternity for this. Good to see them back on top. I will catch hell, but the console wars feel right again. http://youtu.be/P7GeisRaias
This generation will be really good for Sony. They are already on a PS2 like trend with the PS4 and the games will be amazing. Who said console gaming was dead? Lol.
It really seems like they have everything they had during the beginning of the PS2 ...now they only need to keep the ball rolling by constantly bringing out killer games. This years E3 conference might be one of the most important ones for them yet, there's a lot that could go right and a lot that could go wrong this year.
"Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) sold 18.7 million PlayStation 4 (PS4) systems and other game consoles for the fiscal year to March, the Nikkei business daily said, to Nintendo's 16.31 million units." What...? I think there's a few 10s extra.
Ok Sony keep releasing more games and make good on delivering a perfectly working Project Morpheus with a ton of support and I'll rest in peace..
Sony is LIFE. Sony I will never stop loving you. I have loved you ever since I got my first Sony Walkman. XoXoXo
Dude you are a very sick man. You troll every damned X1 article and now I see why. WOW
"Sony is LIFE" And he spelled life in all caps like he really meant it lol. The perfect example of N4PS4 Gamers. lol I love all my systems Xoxoxox
Lol get a life
Jesus Sony is life??? Common dude take it easy..
The PS2 would be Proud ┌( ಠ_ಠ)┘
This is how PS3 should have started.
Congratulations, Sony. You're doing a great job. I'm enjoying my PS4. I can't wait for some of the upcoming games.
So what are the official numbers now for ps4? (please no vgchartz shit)
7 million as of April the 6th ( http://blog.us.playstation.... ) but don't expect any newer figures until E3. It will be Sony's showing off moment.
Got a feeling Sony will mention sales numbers at E3.
Forget VGC. The PS4 has now sold around 8 million units. I can't understand why this article says 'short of 7 million' when Sony revealed their 'sell through' numbers where OVER 7 million on April 6th.
"Almost seven million PS4's were sold, but Sony's overall sales of hardware, including the portable PlayStation Vita, still fell some 20 percent for the fiscal year, the report said." Again, why are we celebrating? Software fell too. If anything this proves how bad the game industry is doing, not how well Sony is doing.
Funny you would mention that considering all the PS3 games and PS products on the best-sellers lists. Also, the industry is doing great, with many sales records being broken. Clearly, you are just being pessimistic, or trolling.
I wouldnt care if sony came 1st 2nd or 3rd in the console race sony still rules
Never lost a generation. The PS1 and PS2 both won their generations. The PS3 finished in 2nd place only becuase the Wii fad. And it looks as if they will win this too. As long as they keep it up and have a lot of exclusives like the PS2 and PS3 did.
I think PS3 won too. I never considered Wii a HD console and it was always PS3 vs 360. Wii was in it's own world.
I see it in the way as you.
Why Sony vs. Nintendo? For me it's Sony + Nintendo. I am living the dream.
very good comment That's a great gaming combination Banzai Japan! The Cradle of Modern Console Gaming!
Same here. My personal dream is Nintendo and Sony legitimately working together on developing games.
I feel the exact same way. That's why I have a PS4 AND a WIIU...
I prefer the alternate title of this headline. Nintendo beat Sony is sales eight years in a row. NOW THEY'RE DOOOMED.
Gone in the lead, yes indeed.
They make 8 years sound like since the 80's . This is just proof the 360 took a hell of a lot of shares after they dominated with the ps2
That should be expected. Sony has been around longer than Microsoft in terms of console gaming.
Great exclusives, great hardware and PS Plus.
No georgegreennoobs to be seen in site Very good news (both the actual news and no georges)
okay..... call me when they have interesting games for ps4 so I can consider it.
Microsoft's sales rose 16 percent to 11.6 million thanks to the rollout of the popular Xbox One towards the end of 2013, the report added.
The truth is, this is irrelevant...SONY needs games for PS4. It's apparent that current PS4 owners are dissatisfied with it's projected (i.e. future) game library, which is that of indie titles.
