Sony sells 18.5 million PlayStation 4 systems Sony Computer Entertainment says they have sold 18.5 million PS4 units since launch in late 2013, meaning the console remains the top current-gen system.
The Japanese giant noted that 4.1 million units were sold worldwide during the holiday season, which was extremely fruitful for all the major consoles.

At its current pace, PS4 sales "represent the fastest and strongest growth" of any PlayStation console in the history of the company, adds Sony. Additionally, Sony now has 11 million PlayStation Plus subscribers paying around $50 per year for online multiplayer and other features.

The PS4 is currently available in 123 countries and territories.

See what i find is funny is this Microsoft says we sold 500,000 console's what they don't say is that 200,000 of them are returned when people find out they have to have xbox live in order for the console to do anything including blu-ray playback.

But on sony they need to fix there file sizes 53.3 gig's to download a game is outrageous considering the game is only 20 gig's on the disk.

53 gig is pretty standard for a PS game these days, XBox still use DVDs which are formatted to the max of 15 or so gig so about double a dual layer DVD.

PS since PS3 have always used dual layer blu-rays which hold 60 gigs of data.

A lot of PS games use HD audio and HD textures whereas the XBox gets compressed audio and textures.
