Total PlayStation 4 sales cross 50 million mark

Total PlayStation 4 sales cross 50 million mark

Despite Microsoft's recent boost in Xbox One sales, the PlayStation 4 remains dominant.

I've written that there are few surprising things in the gaming industry these days, save for Nintendo, which remains to be a wild card of poor marketing decisions, and that Nintendo's mistakes have proven that it's software, not hardware that people are interested in.
