Only 80 Million Active Users when 500 Million consoles have been sold? Not good :/



Its interesting that Sony is using MS words in their PR now. I guess it just sounds too good.



This is for the "80 million" Players!

You gotta respect what Sony done with the PS4, came out the gate an absolute beast and hasn't slowed much in 4-5 years of domination.

still though, regarding those numbers, to be fair.... I'm well aware that my folks who use one of my ps3's as a netflix box count as an active psn user each month, considering you can get that system now for around 50e I'm sure there is a fair few of them being picked up just to turn older HD tv's into smart TV's for spare rooms in the house, especially since all those apps are outside of any paywalls.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

I assume that does count people like me who have not touched their PS4 in months but still have it plugged in while the PS4 is constantly checking in in standby mode.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

same here!



Official member of VGC's Nintendo family, approved by the one and only RolStoppable. I feel honored.

I guess if anything they have maintained. Hopefully they can grow the numbers, and increase the reach of their OS and Store Front.

A quick search shows Android at 2+ Billion, iOS at 1.3+ Billion, Windows 10 600+ Million, and Xbox One 59+ Million.

Sony is not a long ways ahead of XBO, but they have a long way to go to reaching mass market. Getting their OS and Store Front on their Phones and TVs would be a huge leap in the right direction. All Sony products should be running their OS, and the X,O, Square, Triangle, R1, R2, R3, L1, L2, L3 should be standard functions on all Sony devices. A standard language that allows anyone to pick up any Sony device and know exactly how to operate it.

They have a built a great foundation with PS4, now they just need to captialize on it. They have all the assets to see massive growth. They have just as much man power as Apple, Microsoft, and Google. Now they just need to utilize it correctly.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Funny was chatting with my buddy on psn the other day and he goes did you hear ps4 has sold 500m units. I face-palmed but didn't actually correct him just for lols. It's funny how easily people misinterpret pr. You can see why Ms take the approach they take.

No different to other platforms MAU stats. 



How many of them are on Vita though?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
