    Hmm, seems to me like sales have started to slow down. I’d be interested to know how many of those are regular vs Pro units though.

  • Ruggarell

    We did it bros. Next up 100 million. I’ve really enjoyed my PS4 and I’d had it for only about 2 years

    What still pisses me off is the paid online. It’s the sole thing that hesitate me in getting EDF 5 right now (and which seems to be a massive improvement in every way from the japanese streams I’ve seen)

    Otherwise it’s a good home console for jap stuff

    Good to see that there are 2 million idiots that fell for the VR Meme

    Sony’s Playstation 4 platform just cannot be stopped. These sales figures are only natural.

    70.6 million people don’t know how to build a PC.

    What’s wrong? Didn’t get your allowance from mommy yet faggot?

  • Kessek

    Nah, just busy plowing yours while you have headset strapped to your face.

    It’s very hard to properly choose computer parts, considering the very large choice available, and it’s easy to get frightened in building your stuff for the first time (so you end up either having a friend doing this stuff or paying an extra to a pawn shop proposing its PC building services)

    While I own a PC, I largely prefer consoles due of being able to have the original versions of japanese console games (while the PC ports rarely support jap) and because I dont feel having the patience these days to constantly find the method to solve issues in PC ports.
