Lol OK. I'll give it that the ps3 and 360 were neck and neck and ps3 won the fight by a slim margin because it came out a year later and was more expensive, but last gen the ps4 sold almost double what either of the ps3 or 360 did by itself. The Xbox one only just passed 50 million recently. Ps4 is creeping on 120 million. More than double the weight was on ps4s shoulders. If the ps4 had another year before the new Gen released, it probably would double the sales alone.

You're getting downvotes for stating the facts. Smfh
But anyway, I'm collecting comments to review again in about 18 months. Some will be punching the air yet again, the gap will be laughable and predictable. PS will have another 100mil+ sold machine under their belt with the PS5!

I think dark is getting down votes because of this line:
"last gen the ps4 sold almost double what either of the ps3 or 360 did by itself."
Double the PS3 (or 360) would be 174m +/-. Even being generous and saying the 4 is at 120m we can see it isnt anywhere close to double or even almost double. Its more like 1.35x the PS3. Double=2x and almost would be anything below that but above the 1.75x mark.

Stating facts? You're as dumb as them.

Almost double? Wow your math is bad. To be double PS4 would need to sell about 60M more units.
