That averages around 6-7 games per console.

*Looks at my PS4 game collection*....i'm helping at least 5 consoles that doesn't have any games xD

I think my husband and I have around 50 games physical and digital combined.  I'm always amazed how many people own 3-5 games for a system they have for years.

PS2 sold 1.5b

PS2 was basicaly a monopoly. Now there are more people playing games on other platforms like PC today than in early 2000s when everybody only thought about a PS2 when it comes to gaming. The gaming market as a whole actually grew since then.

I for example was mostly console gamer during PS2 era, only owned a PS2 and a basic PC for Diablo and some MMOs, now my main platform of gaming is PC, with a PS4 just for the 1st party titles.

Where do you find the time to play all those games? To completion?

35 games to play in 4 years isn't really much to complete.

35 games so far....its not over yet :D

I know I have at least +10 more games I want but I decided to hold back just cause of my backlogs.  i figured why buy them Day 1 at full price when by the time I actually get the time to play them they'll be cheaper.

 Same here! I find it a bit sad cause you spend good money investing into these consoles to only play a handful of games.  They definitely didn't get their money's worth.  I know a few people that buys systems just for a single game like CoD and thats all they'll play.  Like its nice to see some dedication but they're missing out on a lot.

Uncharted 4 is about 300k away as well.

Horizon Zero Dawn was over 7.6m too, like back in jan 2018.
It "might" be able to reach 10m lifetime too.

The Question is can Spiderman/God of War, also do 10m?... and Id be damned if the answear isnt a "maybe" too there.
Sony has done well with its IP's this gen.

Thats possible. God of War and Spiderman have a strong quality. And God of War is for now the Game of the Year worldwide. Hope the best @ sales figures

I'm pretty sure it's not including digital since it says its retail.
