PS4 hits on the global scale – and now it is even crazier
Do you love to live in the cool games for PS4? Then you must be excited about Virtual Reality for Playstation.
If you thought that smartphones, tablets and Pokemon Go have taken over the world in the game department, you need to think again. The game consoles are alive and well. Especially PS4, which has hit the world. Sony stated in 2017 that they have sold 70 million copies of Playstation 4. It is quite a bit more than the direct competitor on the console market, Xbox One. Microsoft has not presented the numbers, but it is estimated that they have sold around 29 million Xbox One. It is recognised, but PS4 dominates.
The latest Playstation was launched in 2013, but it has reached new records year after year. In 2015 financial year Sony registered sales of 17,7 million PS4 consoles compared to 14,8 sold copies the year before. All in all, Sony had a strong year in 2015, where they did 326% better financially than the previous year. PS4 was a big factor affecting the good numbers.
There is still some way to go to Sony’s most sold Playstation ever. It is to date the Playstation that was released in 2000. It has sold around 155 million copies globally. It was closely followed by Nintendo DS, that has sold a few million less, according to various reports from the manufacturers.
PS4 is revolutionising in many ways, and the popularity can be explained by many games in the top class being developed. 2016 has been a fantastic year for PS4 games. Uncharted 4, Doom and Overwatch are among many cool releases from 2016. Especially on PS4 you can experience the ultimate gaming experience for these crazy games, where you live in every single sequence. There is a reason why so many young and also adult people come to work or school with heavy eyelids.
You can find these PS4 games and all other big new releases at Coolshop for best prices. In 2017 the most popular game, according to the site’s statistics, was Uncharted 4. You play as a character Nathan Drake, who embarks on a crazy trip again, when his brother Sam ends up in mortal danger. It sends the brothers out on another mind-blowing adventure. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is simply an amazing game.
Another popular game at Coolshop is Rachet & Clank. Just like Uncharted, this game is also a Playstation invention and the newest of its kind for PS4.
You can find the best PS4 offers at Coolshop, whose priority is to deliver great prices and to deliver games so fast that it does not pay off to buy them in a physical shop. Other strong games that are in the top for PS4 are Grand Theft Auto and Tom Clancy’s – The Division.
You almost feel constantly spoiled as an engaged gamer. FIFA 17 was undoubtedly a big hit in the autumn of 2016, and there is a brand-new feature. You can experience the life of a professional football player in the world’s biggest leagues as a young Alex Hunter. EA Sports delivers with The Journey, where you transform into Hunter that is suddenly sent out in the Premier League. From there you need to control him both on the field and in conversations with the manager, fans and press!
The most exciting release for PS4 was Playstation VR. It also came out in the autumn of 2016. There are other players on the VR field, like Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, however, Playstation VR has a big advantage, since so many own a PS4. Playstation VR comes as a headset, and it is much cheaper than competitors. It is the most price-friendly Virtual Reality opportunity not based on smartphones, that exists on the market.
There were some concerns, since different tests have not been optimal. Among other issues, testing showed that people felt dizzy after taking off the headset, and that was not the idea. But Sony tends to deliver results, and they have had some time to fix the issues. For Playstation manufacturers this is a prestigious project worth millions of pounds.
“We are used to making hardware. We have done it for so many years, and we have it under control. We know how to successfully bring products out on the market”, says director of Playstation’s development team, Richard Marks.
It is the hottest PS4 accessory ever developed, and it would be stupid not to get the chance to experience games as if they were happening in the middle of your living room. Among other popular accessories on the market is the newest PS4 controller. Sony Dual Shock 4 controller is the latest generation of controllers with many new possibilities and features, compared to the older models. With an integrated touchpad, a “share” button and a headset jack-input, it lives up to the highest requirements you have as a PS4 player. Dual Shock 4 controller is also one of the most popular gaming products at Coolshop.
A wireless headset is also a must as a cool accessory. A PS4 Sony Wireless headset gives you everything you need, apart from Playstation VR. You get a wireless headset with 7.1 virtual surround sound and voice chat, while you play your PS4 games online with friends. It gives a more whole and fantastic game experience.
An interesting debate on Playstation front that is happening right now is, whether one can expect a PS5 on the market. And what size does it come in?
Many experts have predicted that PS4 will be the last console, as we know it. Afterwards everything will be online with streaming. Possibly with a box a size of Apple TV or even smaller. Ubisoft is one of the strongest game developers, who stand behind Assassins Creed and Tom Clancy series, among others. Their administrative director, Yves Guillemot has participated in the debate and predicted that a Playstation 5 will come in the foreseeable future. But then it is over, he says.
“On the console market there are still expectations about getting new consoles that will make the whole industry grow further. There is still a new generation of consoles on the way. So, it is my evaluation that we can still expect at least one generation, before we go over to streaming. But it is an exciting development, that we are doing everything to follow and be first-movers in”, said Yves Guillemot in an interview with Gamespot.
It must be that PS5 is secretly under development right now. Sony knows their core clients, and they will do everything to use the popularity of the Playstation format as we know it today. You can also see it with Apple, who are trying to innovate with Iphones, but also often squeeze the last out of one of their models. Sony has also used many efforts to develop the PS4 model the last few years. Playstation Now, which loads your games in advance, Youtube-streaming and Playstation TV are just some of many good initiatives for constantly living up to expectations.
When and if PS5 comes on the market, you should not expect big revolutions. 20 years ago, the first Playstation came out, and it was almost for the first time that PS4 developed significantly in comparison to earlier models. This is in connection with the boom of online games, and Sony generally likes to stay on the safe side. Luckily, the successful electronics giant also dares to experiment, as they did with VR headset. One of the things Sony should consider in relation to a new console is to drop the classic game discs. Many experts in the game department, however, doubt that it will happen before the consoles switch to streaming permanently.
The big discussion is the games’ size, which actually develops in tune with becoming more advanced. The problems come in with download time and the amount of games users can store on their hard drive. Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc, for example, allows to store games between 50 and 100 GB, which means that it is probably moving in that direction. Only when there is almost a fibernet-speed in the common homes in different countries, will it make sense to transfer consoles to streaming.
There is also more to be excited about, if you are in possession of PS4 or considering jumping on the bandwagon. You can catch a great price at Coolshop.
More strong game releases are on the list. No Mans Sky was highly anticipated. You play it from a POV perspective, the game is what your eyes see, in a new, unexplored land with big dinosaurs.
The Last Guardian was announced in 2009, but complications have pushed the release year to 2016. It is about a boy and his big dog, who have to manage in an exciting universe. Horizon Zero Dawn was also a big hit. You are 1000 years in the future, where robot-dinosaurs rule. You are at war and hunting these beasts.
God of War came out in 2018 and it is a continuation of the popular series. Now the main character Kratos has a son, whom he teaches to fight like a gladiator.
Disney has outsourced their top brands in the game department, and it is Insomniac that has developed the new Spiderman game. Insomniac has, among other, produced aforementioned Ratchet & Clank and Sunset Overdrive. So the expectations for Spiderman game was high. It is interesting to look at the games-bestsellers for PS4. The best-selling game for Playstation 4 is Red Dead Redemption 2. It is followed by Assasins Creed Odyssey and Spyro. Battlefield V and FIFA 19 round up the top-5.
The all-time best-selling game for Playstation in history is Gran Turismo, that first came out in 1997. It was sold in over 11 million copies. Final Fantasy VII is at the second place, followed by Gran Turismo 2 and Tekken III.
If we look even broader, just for the sake of it, and take the most sold games on all platforms, counting both sold games and downloads, then it is a good classic that has the throne. Tetris was sold over 495 million times since its release in 1984. It is quite funny to think about such a small game leading globally. Number two on the list is the crazy popular Minecraft, which aims to attract both kids and adults with many developments in the game. Wii Sports from 2006 was, at the time of release, revolutionising in the interaction you had with the game. That is why it is on third place with 83 million sold copies. Grand Theft Auto V and the legendary Super Mario Bros finish off the top 5 here.
Now that you know the history, it is funny to look back at how a broken partnership between Nintendo and Sony created Playstation. In 1988 two electronic giants collaborated to create a CD-ROM for a coming Nintendo console. The two parties fought, and Sony went its own way with their sketches of a so-called Super-disc. They tried to create the first console, but it was only produced in 200 copies and later ditched. Afterwards, they started working on developing a good console that could challenge Nintendo on the game market. In 1994 the first Playstation came and the rest is history. In 1996 Sony came out with their first own game, which was Total NBA ’96.
A cheap PS4 with a wide selction of games
The popular game console came out in 2013 and is in the 8th generation of consoles. Playstation has always been amongst the leading game machines on the global market, and PS4 is no exception.
