Congratulations PS4 on reaching the 100 million club! Fastest home console ever to reach this figure in 5 years 7 month! Deserved the feat after a masterful display destroying the xbox brand led by Phil Spencer who didnt do anything since taking over the brand. 5 years of not a thing done.

For a console with 100 million sales, it didn't seem to really destroy Xbox, definitely not compared to PS2.

Considering what we saw happen to Wii U, its far from a slaughter. And compared to what we saw with Vita, doesn't even like it got demolished.

I'd say, Sony beat Xbox, and like Nintendo, Xbox is formulating its own plan to counter, to play the game their way, not Sony's way.

Congratulations well deserves to Sony. I was a late adopter to the system but enjoyed every minute of it. The UI is simple and easy to navigate the library of games is exceptional across all genres.

PS4 will beat the Wii and PS1 by 2020 and become the second best selling console of all time behind the PS2.

What an amazing accomplishment.

Over a billion software. Projected 15 million sales upcoming year. At the end of year fiscal, it will be 3rd best hardware behind PS2 and Nintendo DS and 2nd in software to PS2. It'll be interesting to see how it holds out first few years into next-gen arrival.

Whenever I see the Verge, it gives me nightmares how they show you how to build a PC. No PC gamer wants to remember those guys lol.

Congrats to Sony. Outside of handhelds there have been only 3 other systems to have reached the 100 million club; PS1, PS2, Wii and now PS4.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

100 million, baby! Fastest console to ever reach that number. Suck it, Xgoons! Sony wiped their feet on Xbox this gen. Since PC owners now have no reason to pick up an Xbox console, I expect that to repeat next gen.

@BenjaminBanklin: it's only ahead of the ps2 because the ps2 launched 6 months early in Japan, so the ps2 loses out on 6 months of worldwide sales when compared to the ps4. Still am accomplishment but it's misleading to say fastest ever.

And PS4 launched three months later in Japan. That's not really a factor. Tiered launches are still kind of the norm.

Comparing the PS4 sales to the PS2 is silly. We have more gamers than every before (1.83billion give or take) and the revenue in 2000 was 6.6 billion compared to 43 billion last year.

@BenjaminBanklin: 3 months of Japanese sales is not equal to 6 months of Europe and NA sales(both of which are roughly double the Japanese market for consoles) and essentially gives the ps4 an extra holiday season when comparing the two. As I said it's still an accomplishment but a bit misleading.

@Chutebox: ps2 outsold the xbox and game cube by over 6 to 1. So he is correct the margin of victory is MUCH smaller.

@npiet1: playstation tends to have very long lifecycle. PS1, PS2 & PS3 reach 10 years due to Sony support and system popularity. Heck Vita recently got an update.

So does Nintendo, Wii just had a game come out "Just dance". Plus the PS5 is BC so a lot of people will flood the market when they upgrade.

It is smaller, but that's not the part I was arguing.

You were probably the first one to tell people resolution didn't matter before X1X came out. Congrats on X1X running games in dynamic 4K with settings turned down lower than PC settings, with garbage performance. 500 449399 Free? dollars well spent.

Only had a few games that I cared about (Ratchet and Clank, Dragon Quest Builders, Final Fantasy 12).

One remake and a few games on other systems. Worst Ps system by far for me. (still better than X-Box)

the wii got to 95 million much faster than the ps4.

wii launched in dec 2006 and got to 95million in dec 2011. it got to 95M faster than ps4.

however it took wii "3 years" to sell 5M more units to reach 100M. INSANE ....thats because nintendo cut off support for wii in 2011 and wii died.

but the fastest console to reach 95M was the Wii

It must hurt fanboys to deal with facts and realize that everything that MS has been hyping which the fanboys have echoed like mindless parrots was wrong.

Wasn't gamepass and services supposed to save MS? Didn't MS just say no one was buying their system because of current gen fatigue?

Well here's something else you're wrong about that you can damage control.

PS4 Has Officially Sold 100 Million Units, and It's Done So Faster Than Any Other Console

Sony has now sold through 100 million PlayStation 4 consoles.The data for the first financial quarter of 2019 has been released, and the Japanese giant managed to sell 3.2 million PS4s between April and June, tipping it over the edge of the milestone. We're sure all the folks at PlayStation HQ will be popping some champagne -- it's abundantly clear the console has been a monumental success.

But that's not quite the end of it. According to industry analyst Daniel Ahmad, the PS4 is now the console to have reached 100 million the fastest. Yes, faster than the Nintendo Wii, and yes, faster than even the PS2. That's a pretty staggering result.

Multiple sites are noting "shipped," or "sell in" as shown in the tweet.
