Celebrate the Fifth Anniversary of PlayStation 4

Feast your eyes on some interesting PS4 stats and a brand-new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 PS4 bundle.

It’s hard to believe it’s already been five years since the launch of PlayStation 4. In that time, we’ve sold more than 86.1 Million hardware units, in addition to over 777.9 Million software units worldwide. We are so grateful to all the fans who have helped us come this far — it truly is an amazing time to be a part of the PlayStation family, and we thank you for your continued support.

Here are a few highlights of some unique PS4 stats, including what games you all have played the most and what DualShock 4 color is the most popular after the standard black (hint: it’s a color we love at PlayStation). Check out the infographic below.

To celebrate this occasion, we are also revealing a new PS4 bundle to add to our lineup, the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 PS4 bundle.

If you haven’t already, now is the perfect time to join the PS4 community and experience the latest multiplayer first-person shooter that features gritty, grounded, fluid Multiplayer combat, the biggest Zombies offering ever with three full undead adventures, and Blackout, where the universe of Black Ops comes to life in one massive battle royale experience. Not to mention, PS4 players can look forward to unlocking content in advance of anyone else*.
This bundle is available November 27 at participating retailers nationwide for $299.99 MSRP (USD) / $379.99 MSRP (CAN), and includes a jet-black 1TB PS4 system, a matching DualShock 4 wireless controller, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on Blu-ray Disc.

This year has seen some of the best content ever on the platform, with God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and Red Dead Redemption 2. There’s so much more still to come, including Days Gone, Death Stranding, Dreams, Ghost of Tsushima, and The Last of Us II!

Once again, I’d like to thank all of our incredible fans, whose passion inspires us every day to make PS4 the best place to play. We look forward to welcoming all those who will be joining the PS4 community this holiday and beyond.

  • Happy 5 years to the PS4…but it needs a few improvements:
    1. Add backwards compatibility with PS1-PS3 games. I know that PSNow exists, but there’s no way that I will be paying up to 70 euros for it. The Xbox One added backwards compatibility with Xbox/Xbox 360 games in 2015 – why won’t you, Sony?
    2. Stop censoring Japanese games. This issue has been mentioned many times in this thread – but I have to mention it aswell.
    3. Make online multiplayer free.

  • How about you stop censoring games made by hard working Japanese developers first, before celebrating anything?
