Sony's PS4 is the fastest console to reach 100 million units sold

30 July 2019
It's been out for five years and seven months now, and 50 million of those were sold in the past three years.

Trump Fan 1980, 31 Jul 2019 Well, I told you guys... 8k console gaming is coming, and it is... moreOnly "8K support" has been mentioned in the context of next-gen consoles which doesn't necessarily mean games would run @ 8K resolution. Xbox One S also has 4K support but only for video playback. PS5 would need a GPU that's 4x more powerful than PS4 Pro just to output current PS4 games @ 8K checkerboard resolution ( i.e not true 8K) without any other graphical enhancement. What's more, such a GPU that also fits within console budget and form factor won't be available by next year.

i really hope they will have a 1080p 144fps stable(or higher) mode.

4k, if you can call it that is just an up-scaled better gfx 1080p.
as someone else said true 4k cards code more than any console..
so saying they are "8k ready" is a complete scam

Moj, 31 Jul 2019Be warned the next-gen PS would only have BC with PS4 games any ... moreMaybe.
But I do know Sony has its own Official Emulators built for the PS1, PSP, and PS2... so it's possible they have one in their labs for the PS Vita and PS3.

And I know, based on projections, a PC with the PS5 specifications can do PS3 emulation on Windows 10 Pro, albeit with some difficulty. So maybe we will get an optimised one on the PS5 to do some PS3 emulation. I just don't like their streaming service, nor am I a fan of their re-release titles, I prefer the proper Backward Compatibility like MS did with the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One. Hopefully, it happens so we can all properly upgrade from our PS3-PS4 consoles directly into a singular PS5 unit.

What you talking about is total BS!
For games like Forza Horizon 4 there in not much of diffrence in 30 vs 60 fps cause you really don't need that much fast reaction!
yet i an unsure you ever seen anything over 30fps!

It might get PS1/2 like downloadable content from PS store(just like PS3/4) and probably they can't make it to BC with PS3 !

TV's also start to offer higher refresh rate support, so I hope new generation stops locking games to 60. It just looks so awfully slow, usually there's a ton of motion blur too. My friend recently bought an Xbox One X and we played some games on it. Like Forza Horizon 4 @ 4K, which means 30 FPS. It was unplayable, and the "performance" modes 60 wasn't exactly good.. Well, at least the it was a cheap package.

Very, very wrong. I recall a ton of great games releasing this gen:

New IPs: Sekiro, Horizon Zero Dawn, Spiderman PS4, Bloodborne, Undertale, Overwatch, Hollow Knight, Celeste, Cuphead, Ori and the Blind Forest, Splatoon

Sequels and spin-offs: Dark Souls 3, God of War, Red Dead Redemption 2, Witcher 3, Persona 5, MGS V, Uncharted 4, Doom, RE2, RE7, NieR Automata, Titanfall 2, Destiny 2, Monster Hunter: World, Devil May Cry 5, Forza Horizon 4, Divinity Original Sin 2, Dishonored 2, XCOM 2, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Rise and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Arkham Knight, Prey, Fire Emblem Three Houses, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Mario Kart 8, Zelda Breath of the Wild, Super Mario 3D World, Bayonetta 2, Xenoblade X and 2, Super Mario Maker 1 and 2, Splatoon 2 and more

I've also completely skipped a lot of indies and the entire 3DS and PS Vita library.

Some of these are even the best entries in the entire franchise e.g. Monster Hunter, Fire Emblem, Witcher, arguably Zelda and Super Smash Bros, Forza etc

I did not include cross gen titles and HD re-releases. Complete remakes like RE2 and Doom and Prey are completely redesigned from ground up for current gen so you can't simply treat them as 'just remasters' so they're included.

We also got a completely new genre of battle royale and Fortnite, PUBG and Apex Legends are all pretty great controversies aside. But agreed on one point: microtransactions are bad altough personally I've never encountered really bad MTX apart from a few games that were garbage ANYWAY i.e. Battlefield V, Anthem (which was an abomination of a game, complete trash) , Battlefront 2, Black Ops 4 (although while still bad was miles better than previous 3).

So no, we had a lot of great games this gen. After all we got 4 main home consoles (PS4, XOne, Wii U, Switch) instead of the usual 3.

Not best selling. The PS2 is the clear winner there at 156 million, with the DS following.
