Sony says it has sold seven million PlayStation 4 worldwide since its launch last year and admitted it can't make them fast enough, in a welcome change of fortune for the Japanese consumer electronics giant. "The response from the global gaming community for PS4 (PlayStation 4) has been overwhelming and we are truly humbled that gamers are selecting PS4 as their next generation console of choice," Andrew House, president and group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., said in a statement.
Let s say you ve already beaten Infamous: Second Son, you re anxiously awaiting the next big release, but you have no idea when anything is coming out. Well, the fine folks at the PlayStation Blog have done us all a favor and put together a list of every single PlayStation 4 game that has been announced for 2014 so far. The list is broken into games that have already released, games coming out in the coming seasons and the games that haven t been given firm release dates yet.
It s been a few months since we last heard any news regarding PlayStation and PlayStation 2 game emulation on the PS4, but according to an inside source, the software is well on its way to release. Ahsan Rasheed, a game industry tipster with some clout, has revealed through a series of tweets that Sony is working to bring local support for PS1 and PS2 games to the PS4 with native 1080p rendering for select titles. This goes hand in hand with a report from January which also claimed that classic game emulation would be coming to the PS4, separate from PlayStation Now game streaming.
If there s any downside to the massive demand for the PlayStation 4, it s that some consumers still haven t had a chance to buy the new console. According to Sony, this trend will likely continue until the early summer months, when supply will finally meet demand, reports The Wall Street Journal.
Another day, another huge PlayStation 4 sales milestone on the books! Sony has a serious hit on its hands in the early days of this console generation, with the PS4 having recently topped the 5.3 million unit mark as of mid-February. Adding on to that tally is the 322,083 consoles Sony reportedly sold in Japan

As market chatter continues to point to Xbox One inventory build-up in various retail sales channels, Sony has reportedly revealed during a closed-doors meeting that sales of its new PlayStation 4 console are still screaming.
Late last year, we pitted the PlayStation 4 against the Xbox One in a head to head analysis that sought to determine which console was the better buy for gamers. While each box had advantages over the other, we determined that Sony s PS4 had a clear edge in the early days. As it turns out, sales numbers reportedly recently by both Microsoft and Sony suggest that our verdict was right on the money. There was one area where the Xbox One had an advantage over the PlayStation 4, however the selection of games available at launch but Sony will look to level the playing field in 2014.
Globally, Sony s PlayStation 4 dominated the early days of this generation s video game console war. Sony announced earlier this month that it sold a jaw-dropping 4.2 million PS4 consoles in 2013 following the box s launch in mid-November. Xbox One sales in 2013 totaled only 3 million units through the end of last year. The U.S., however, is an entirely different story. After the Xbox 360 s 32-month winning streak came to an end in September last year, it popped back into the N0. 1 spot in October before the PlayStation 4 swooped in and took the crown in November. But December was all Xbox.

If the PlayStation 4 is any indication of the quality of the next generation of gaming, then it was worth the wait after all. I m writing this review seven years to the day after Sony brought the PlayStation 3 to the United States, a console I swore I would never buy after Sony revealed the ridiculous price tag at E3. Seven years later, the Japanese electronics giant has value in mind and the PlayStation 4 is a bargain.
The years of waiting have finally come to a close: Microsoft s Xbox One and Sony s PlayStation 4 are here. Many of you have undoubtedly already made your choice, but there are millions more who are setting aside some cash or carefully crafting a holiday wish list this year who have yet to decide which console is worth the investment. We reviewed both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 without getting into any comparisons between the two, but all bets are off in this final console showdown. Only one black box can be crowned king of this console generation.
