PlayStation 4 outsells the Nintendo 64
Sony PlayStation 4 sales quietly surpass those of the legendary Nintendo 64.
As of December 2015, PlayStation 4 sales have surpassed that of Nintendo 64. The PS4 has now sold 33.16 million units, 23,000 more than Nintendo 64's 32.93 million units sold. With that said, we are three years into this console generation and compared to earlier generations, they're not huge numbers. Check out our full round-up of sales figures below.
Even though the PlayStation was clearly the 90s console of choice, many owned a Nintendo 64, even if it was reserved for epic multiplayer stoushes, like Mario Kart 64, Super Smash Bros or GoldenEye 007.
If you didn't own one, you almost certainly had a neighbour, friend or family member who saw a lot more of you when Donkey Kong 64 was released. The N64 is iconic and left a legacy so strong that its best games are constantly getting revamped and resold so we can experience the magic all over again.
