PlayStation 4 was the best-selling hardware of the decade in the United States, according to industry-tracking firm The NPD Group. Nintendo Switch was the No. 1 console of 2019.
After the new rumors that Horizon coming to pc and if Sony go that road with their exclusives... believe me they will never be top dog again If that happen i think alot of gamers will build Strong pcs and move away from consoles
You make it sound like PlayStation exclusives would show up on PC, day and date. This is YEARS after the fact. Anyone who really wanted Horizon: Zero Dawn, if we're being candid, already bought it unless they did not have a PS4. A PC release gives great games a second life. Let's face it: the cost of game development in terms of time and budget has exploded. PS2 and PSOne had a ton of exclusives because games were not too costly to produce. By the time we got PS3, commercial failure of some games meant the closure of studios. Developers have mitigated that risk by making multiplatform titles.That would be 2 generations ago. Imagine the cost going into gen 9. It stands to reason then that a first-party developer (i.e., a developer that has always made exclusives for one console/family of consoles) Would also benefit from expanding to the PC platform. Honestly, I think this is the best possible move for Sony on this matter. If they released their games on Switch or Xbox, you would have a point. But on PC, years after the fact? I don't see the risk.
Well, i see your point and maybe i overthink this rumor but if Sony start doing what Microsoft is doing with their games and release them on PC/ps5 at the same time ... speaking for my self i will find very little reason to buy ps5 when i can just upgrade my pc more and play everything We will see what happen but i also don't like Sony keeping us in the dark about what they want to do with their exclusives if it will come to pc or not and the future of Ps5 I atleast respect Microsoft for making it clear about what they want (will never buy their consoles though)
I can't be the only technologically inept gamer in the world. The barrier to entry on PC gaming is too confusing for myself. I like to just turn a system on, know a game is already optimised for my system and play. I have no understanding of graphic card settings, types of RAM or anything like that.
I think the rumour was the release in the psnow.. not a PC version.
next stop, best selling (console) hardware of all time!
Horizon ZD is 3 years old though
sony will NEVER release their exclusives on pc. ever. unlike ms, they have no stock in another platform(ie, windows), so it makes no sense for them to sabotage their own console by going down that route. you can say all you want about people just getting a super powerful pc to play all games, but consoles still remain as an easily accessible medium for people to just pick up and play. the average person will associate console gaming with sitting down and playing game on your big-screen tv, while pc gaming is looked at as playing at a desk. of course you can have a set-up however you want, but generally speaking, most people see consoles as a easier, more convenient option.
Congrats Sony and PS4, well deserved, and 2020 looks a fantastic last year for PS4 before PS5 drops.
PS5 will most likely claim that achievement in the 2020s
PS6 should be out in 2026, maybe 27 so who knows.
PS5 will have far more of the decade than the PS6 so I don't see how, barring something extraordinary, the PS6 will outsell it.
If Sony doesn't buy into the "ending generations" nonsense by then.
We haven’t even finished PS4 yet 😑😅😂
ps6 will be 2028 at the earliest.
Xbox Series X will be the king for the next decade if the rumors of the lackluster launch lineup for PS5 is true. According to insider Logvinov who leaked that Death Stranding was coming to PC months before it was announced he claims the PS5 will not have a single major exclusive at launch offering buyers enhanced versions of popular PS4 exclusives instead. The Xbox meanwhile will get anywhere between 12 to 16 exclusives right on day one although not all of them will be major releases
“The Xbox meanwhile will get anywhere between 12 to 16 exclusives” Let’s not jump to conclusions until both consoles and their games lineup are fully revealed.
I think he is being sarcastic, all at least I hope he is, XSeX won't even have 12 to 16 exclusives over its lifetime let alone launch LMFAO.
Please provide actual 100% proof of your claim.
Not Xbox series only exclusives. Keep your Xbox one to play Halo Infinite
Bahahhaha....oh wait....you were serious? The PS4 had a lackluster launch lineup too. How'd that turn out? 12-16 exclusives on day 1? You've supported MS all these years. When have they EVER had that many games? This "Insider" is trolling you hard
Has the XB1 had 16 exclusives yet?
what bizarro world are you living in?
wow......Delusion got carried from last decade right into this one. There also seems to be a lot of unwarranted disagrees going around like people are somehow irked by actual numbers instead of vague spinny metrics. Sony have been consistent and have had a clear objective spanning gens. Why do some frame it like its only MS who can or will improve or that sony is in some kinda messy situation. I don't get it ....... Congrats to the PS family. They've done an amazing job
2/10 for troll attempt, you need to be more subtle. 12 to 16 day one exclusives Microsoft? It would take then an entire generation to do that never mind day one.
Keep living in your fantasy world.
I think I can safely say he is being sarcastic.
@Gaboon He's making a reference to some rumors spread by a Russian YouTuber.
Battlestar You must be new to gaming. Beginning of every gen Xbox people claims big but each time PS rises at the top. When PS starts droping their exclusives for the PS5. There is no turning back.. day one 12 to 16 exclusives lmao! BUT wasn't there a rumor saying that there wont be xbox series X exclusives for 2 years.
You do know that Xbox has 0 exclusives right? All their games will release on PC. I hope this was sarcasm
Wtf are you smoking? You can't possibly believe that garbage or even have missed all the stories about MS not having XSeX exclusives for 2 years at least
It was known to come to pc... there was no leak. It was said from the offset
You lost, dude. Xbox has lost every single generation. Every. Single. One
Ahahahaha guess you didn't get the Booty memo about xbox series x for the next year or two.
Microsoft already said that the Xbox (aka Series X) won't have exclusive for the first 2 years.
BAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA omg sorry, but that's hilarious. Lets see what happens shall we?
Mristerx? Is that you???
You know we know you're lying, right?
None leaked Death Stranding PC version, Kojima Productions announced that the game would release on PC so I think you should get your facts straight...
Battle 😂 How is that inside information when Sony and Kojima themselves announced DS was coming out on Pc too? And I thought ms weren't doing any Xbox series x exclusives for 2 years? Do you know how hard it is to do 12-16 exclusives
12-16 exclusives for Xbox??? Joke of the day. Maybe in the entire generation, maybe....
Battlestar23 "Xbox Series X will be the king for the next decade if the rumors of the lackluster launch lineup for PS5 is true.

I'm inclined that such comment was generated by a Microsoft Algorithm because in order to arrive over such conclusion you need proof. Saying that such launch will be a lackluster is indeed premature. This post is simply an attempt to look for attention or a classical old flame bait. No one in their sane mind troll like this, not even a 12 old xbox toxic internet player. Either way this puff piece talking doesn't stop to be fascinating for mockery, subject for a meme and entertainment.
Microsoft won't have 1st party exclusives for at least 2 years but they have thrown the money hat around and bought some 3rd party exclusivity for Series X. Word has it that some of them are Resident Evil 8, Rocksteady's Superman game and a new IP from Square Enix which was supposed to be a PS5 exclusive but is now a Series X exclusive as in not a timed exclusive.

This is a ps4 thread. Go troll elsewhere with that bait.
No no no. It works like this. MS releases 3 games across 5 platforms and services, hence, 15 exclusives total. MS domination incoming!!!
Think you should pitch that to CBS, sounds like a top notch Twilight Zone story
Death stranding was said to be coming to PC the day it was revealed. At that time, its console releases were unknown.
Not surprising, really
Of course & the PS5 will be the best selling console this decade as well.
Who can say it wasnt deserved with a straight face? You have to give them credit for talking with their games, generation after generation, unwavering.
PS4, best console of the decade. The Last of Us, game of the decade. Wow. What a huge achievement. Then Nintendo also doing fantastic on second place. Congratulations to both.
I can believe that easily. Next in line is the Switch, and lastly bringing up the rear the XBox One series of systems.
Congratulations Sony. For the first time I've only needed to buy one system too (hope I didn't just jinx myself) so also a testament to dependable hardware
And because of it, everything was right with the world. Variety of games. Japanese games not westernized and losing their flavor of what makes their games different. Less reliance on dude bro games and tea bagging. When Nintendo was in front, it was all motion controls and retirement homes. When Microsoft was in front...for awhile.. it was all dude bro. With Sony, back to reality and variety. Glad Sony sold so many and brought a balance.
You make a strong point. During the 360 and ps3 days it was mostly dude bro and we all know the reason for that. I'm glad Sony was at the helm this gen because they brought all genres to the forefront without compromise. PS5 has a place in my home.
Sony has restored the balance to the galaxy.
Well done to the Switch for winning 2019. Onward to 2020.
Uhh this is an article about Sony and the whole decade. You confuse article or something?
So what? It clearly states that Switch was the best selling console of 2019. Obviously. But still... it's IN the article, so why would you think he's confused?
If you want to live in the past then great, but i’m preferring 2019 and 2020.
Yeah, on PlayStation last life cycle, where sales are always expected to be low due to the hype of the next gen consoles, Nintendo made a good year. But I would celebrate more Sony who got the best console of the decade which is a bigger a huge achievement.
You haven't noticed that when Playstation does well, that everything else has to be compared with it, or made to overshadow it?
