PlayStation 4 worldwide sales reach 86.1 million

The most popular controller colour REVEALED!

Sony has wheeled out a new worldwide sales figure for PlayStation 4. The grand total now stands at 86.1 million units sold.

It's a rather odd milestone on account of PlayStation 4 turning five years old today and Sony needing an up-to-date statistic for an infographic.

Other nuggets of information include the most popular controller colour - can you guess what it is? Bloody boring standard black, that's right. Then it's red, blue, white and pukey camo.

Infographics. It's the word I hate most, I think.

The most popular games section is tricksy because it lists games alphabetically rather than in ranked order, according to the very-small print, which means Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 beats FIFAs 17 and 18, Fortnite, and Grand Theft Auto 5.

Then again, the PlayStation Blog post goes on to announce a brand new Black Ops 3 PlayStation 4 bundle, so perhaps that's why.

How many of you still play on a launch model PlayStation 4? More to the point, how many of you own a vacuum which is louder?
