Let's all not forgot the fact Spider-man was also included for free during Black Friday bundle along with a discounted PS4 Pro, so that may have also pushed tons of sales.

Make no mistake, 2018 was the grand year for PS4, it had Detroit: Become Human, God of War, and Marvel's Spider-Man as well. Sony has absolutely destroyed 2018.

Spider-Man is killing it as a PS4 salesman! I bet the next closest guy at work has only sold like 15-20, tops.

Spidey's a shoe-in for sales person of the month. That $50 gift card is gonna be pretty sweet!

The ps4 is still not on my radar of a console I need/want, but good for them. Competition is healthy for ALL gamers.

Well, I was gonna make a thread with a poll to guess which console sold the most in 2018, but based on my calculations it's impossible that Switch won with these numbers! Congrats, Sony! The road to 100 million is reaching its end!

I would love to see those calculations of yours. Q3 sales for Sony are DOWN compared to the last couple of years. How does that make it "impossible" for the Switch to win exactly?

PS4 Holiday sales:

  • Holiday 2013: 4.2m
  • Holiday 2014: 4.1m
  • Holiday 2015: 5.7m
  • Holiday 2016: 6.2m
  • Holiday 2017: 5.9m
  • Holiday 2018: 5.6m

@vfighter: Quite easily, actually - when you add the negatives. If you’re a fan of online gaming, one of the most beloved FPS’s in the industry (Halo), and a racing fan, the ps4 falls short. In comparison, the ps4 has Killzone, Driveclub, and GT Sport - all of which fall short to Xbox’s offerings in their respective categories. To further explain it, every Halo FPS game is available on the X1 vs Killzone (4?), and 6 high rated Forza games vs the poorly received GT Sport and abysmal Driveclub.

Online wise the ps4 continues to underwhelm with shoddy connectivity, poor monthly plus offering, and until recently - some previous titles removed from the cloud.

There is no point in putting in logical reasons on SW as to why the PS4 is useless to some people, as for cows they believe if you don't own a PS4 and love its movie games etc then you're not a gamer and all the other dumb stuff they spew.

I'm sure that Nintendo won the holidays, but for the whole year it's not realistically possible. Holiday was slightly down but October would have made up the difference, meaning that Nintendo will need to have shipped at least 10.6-11 million units in the quarter to beat them. While I'm sure they came close, there's no way they sold that much.

EDIT: Actually, it's close enough that it might be worthwhile to make the thread anyway. I'll think about it.

EDIT 2: Okay, this is weird. In 2017, they sold 20.2 million units but shipped 19.4 million. That's interesting to say the least. That changes things. It could go either way.

Yes just like Halo forza and gears have been bundles as well and accounted,games bundle with consoles are always accounted on all sides.

No giving it away was what MS did with the xbox one with ACBF and ACU for $329 + a $50 gift card on holiday 2014 when 8 months before that it was $500 for just an xbox one without games.

I don't know why people do this is not like the xbox one didn't have $199 bundles,this is not new Halo 3 got bundles are all were account last gen,this gen is the same Halo MCC had bundles,Halo 5 had bundles,Forza,Gears you name it and non reach 9 million units.

That is the idea bundling the game so the sales pick up.

Hahahahaa.........

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/most-played/games/xbox

Even warframe is more played than Halo on xbox live,a game that hit the PS4 before the xbox one,rocket league been play more than Forza again another game that was first on PS4 than on xbox one,halo 5 at spot 29 doesn't even crack the top 20.

https://majornelson.com/2012/01/06/top-games-of-2011/

Just to show you how pathetic and irrelevant Halo,gears and forza have become this gen.

Look at that list that was the most played games of 2011 on xbox 360 as you can see it was the xbox 360 6th year,there is Halo and gears on the top 10,on the top 20 there are 2 halo's,2 Gear's and 1 Forza game.

Look at how pathetic it is now on its 5th year,Halo 5 been beaten by a ton of shitty games and some good ones to.

Do you see which is the most played game? Yeah Fortnite which is also the PS4 top one i think,but that is really FREE to play on PS4 but not on xbox one.

Hiding behind online as some kind of excuse is a joke,fact is most people don't even care about Halo and the numbers don't lie period it had become irrelevant Spiderman outsold Halo 5 without problems in a very short time i may add.lol

That is logical only to blind lemmings who pretend the PS4 has nothing online to play,meanwhile on the real world Fortnite is the top played game on xbox and PS4 and Halo can't even crack xbox live top 25 and loses to games such as Warframe.

How things have change this gen,who would have thought that mighty and powerful Halo would not even crack the top 20 this gen.

I guess most lemmings who are interested in online play are playing other games which kind of kill the whole ""if you want online you most get and xbox "" crap.

Rocket league more played than Forza..Hahahahahaaa but but but sony has no online games only the xbox does.

You don't own a PS4 because you like shitty games with online play like sea of thieves or state of decay 2 over great games without online play like Spiderman and GOW.

Is not our fault that your taste in games suck.

Meanwhile the PS4 in just 5 years destroyed the fastest and best selling xbox console ever the xbox 360 which which took 11 years to reach 86 millions and the PS4 in less than half the time destroys it..lol

Better luck next gen.
