Well done Sony. It will be interesting to see how sales are when Neo is introduced.

Good to hear they are doing well. Wonder how they will report it once the PS4.5 drops. Sum of both or split figures?

2.3m in Q4 is the worst quarter for PS4 since launch, but 40 million at this point is amazing of course.

I remember when people thought the WiiU's tepid launch signaled the beginning of the end of the console industry, and the PS4/X1 were going to crater accordingly.

Wow that ultimate disrespect.
As in reading the market and selling what the consumer wants to buy.

I really hope this is a warning call to Nintendo to get things in gear. That's probably why they're holding out to get all their ducks lined up.

Really goes to show the power of digital eh.

Sony should really rethink forced subscription for online play, PSN is obviously big enough to generate profit without it now and as much as it increase their profit, it's also driving some users away on the long run, the same goes for MS.

Man the ps4 has been a runaway success for Sony. Charging for multiplayer is really paying off for Sony. They can at least thank Microsoft for that cash cow.

Pretty sure you'd be fired for incompetence for even suggesting that in a Sony board room.

We ain't never ever going back to the old PS3 online model.

Um, that's probably exactly why these figures are what they are.

There's absolutely zero evidence to support this claim. If what you said even had a remote chance of happening, you would have seen PSN numbers flatline long ago. Especially considering the userbase was coming from a free online platform.

40 million PS4 shipped and still not a single gameplay video of GT... :(
Aligning the time lines, this is on the right path to be a bigger plunder than GT5 on PS3, in terms of delays at least. Just why did GT have to be my favorite Sony in house IP. :(
