Can you believe its already been five years since the PlayStation 4 launched worldwide on 15th of November in 2013? The console sold one million units in 24 hours, making it the fastest-selling launch in PlayStation history. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun. In what seems to be much shorter space than five years, PlayStation has sold more than 86.1 Million hardware units, in addition to over 777.9 Million software units worldwide. That’s an unbelievable achievement that no platinum trophy could even touch.

Some of the statistics for the PlayStation 4 include the top five best-selling titles, with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 sitting at the number 1 position, followed by Call of Duty: World War II, Fifa 17, Fifa 18, and Grand Theft Auto V. The standard black was the most popular DualShock 4 controller color with camo coming in unfortunately last, that’s if you can even see it *ba-dum-tshh*

The award for the rarest PlayStation 4 model goes to the 500 million limited edition PS4 Pro, which was released in September as Sony commemorated the 500th million units sold since the original PlayStation was released back in 1994.


To celebrate all of its success, and rightly so, PlayStation has revealed the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 PS4 bundle. The bundle is available from November 27 for $299.99 and includes a jet-black 1TB PS4 system, a matching DualShock 4 wireless controller, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on Blu-ray Disc.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 which released in October, is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. If you want to pick up the game on Amazon, you can do so by clicking here.
