The Sony console has already defeated Microsoft in the field of the best-selling platforms and it only has to compete against Nintendo and its predecessors, but the first two sites are still far away.
The portal VGChartz said that around the world have acquired just over 86.15 million PlayStation 4 systems so it is already the seventh place in the top of the best sellers. This leaves the Xbox 360 in eighth place, with 85.80 million consoles and the impossibility of this figure to increase significantly. The territory where Sony dominates is the Eastern while Microsoft sends in the United States, so the real battle is in Europe, where they have given preference to PlayStation .
The next goal for PlayStation 4 is to overcome its immediate predecessor, something that will happen at any time because the PlayStation 3 only takes a little over 700,000 consoles difference, something that could overcome with the imminent arrival of Santa Claus and the Kings Magicians Now, to get to the top five the thing is more complicated because the Nintendo Wii has tightly held his post, just below the first PlayStation .
The list of honor is the following:
- PlayStation 2 : 157.68 million
- Nintendo DS : 154.90 million
- Game Boy : 118.69 million
- PlayStation : 104.25 million
- Wii : 101.64 million
- PlayStation 3 : 86.90 million
- PlayStation 4 : 86.15 million
- Xbox 360 : 85.80 million
- Game Boy Advance : 81.51 million
- PlayStation Portable : 80.82 million
The games that have contributed most to the success of the PlayStation 4 are headed by Gran Theft Auto V (18.77 million copies), followed by Call of Duty Black Ops III (15.03 million) and Call of Duty: WWII (13.2 million); figures lower than those that have the games that gave the Xbox 360 shine in their days, as Kinect Adventures placed 22.1 million copies, Grand Theft Auto V 15.86 million and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 14.82 million.
