The fourth installment in the main PlayStation line of consoles continues to sell at an impressive rate. As announced by Sony, by the end of 2018 the PS4 has topped the 90 million mark with a total of 91.6 million consoles sold. That number includes all console variations, such as the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro.

The 2018 holiday season was especially fruitful for Sony, as 5 million PS4s were sold during the year’s busiest shopping season. Five years into the PS4 life cycle and the hardware is still selling like hotcakes.

To keep the trend of Sony gaming alive and well is also the amount of exclusive titles released throughout 2018, one being the massively successful Marvel’s Spider-Man which surpassed 9 million units sold. The game released back in early September, so these impressive numbers were reached in only a matter of months.

Other big hitters on the exclusive front like God of War and Detroit Become Human, along with multiplatform titles such as Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2, also play a huge part in keeping gamers pleasantly happy with their PS4 purchases.

The year 2018 was indeed a positive one for Sony and the Playstation brand, and 2019 looks to push the worldwide sales total to over 100 million consoles sold. With upcoming games like Ghost of Tsushima, MediEvil Remake and The Last of Us Part II still on the horizon, it will be exciting to see just how far the PS4 can go in the list of best selling consoles of all time.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
