Currently, the functionality appears to only be available when on the web version of the PlayStation Store. It is unclear when, or if, it will be added to the console store. You can choose to allow your friends to see what's on your wishlist, or keep it private.

On the right side of the screen, lists are populated with best-selling games and movies. Clicking the heart icon next to a product will move it to the wishlist, where an "Add to Basket" button is prominently available. Individual game pages also feature an "Add to Wishlist" button.

PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita games can all be added to the Wishlist.

The PS4 maintained its position as the best-selling console in the US in September. According to data published by NPD.

"As we kick off the holiday season, we would like to take a moment to thank fans for making PlayStation 4 the best-selling console and #1 in software sales in September," Sony said in a statement.

"PlayStation 4 was the number one console for NBA 2K16,Madden NFL 16, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and FIFA 16. Including the highly successful limited edition console bundle, PS4 also led retail sales for Destiny: The Taken King."

The PS4 was also the best-selling console in August. This may change, however, in the the holiday season, when Microsoft will release several exclusive games, including Rise of the Tomb Raider and Halo 5, Sony, meanwhile, will be relying on its new partnership with Activision in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 to maintain the lead.
