How the PS4 Won a Console Generation

January 14, 2021 12 Views

It’s no secret that the PlayStation 4 platform dominated the market during its generation, pulling the rug right out from underneath Microsoft’s once coveted throne during the Xbox 360 era.

From a cheeky walkthrough of how to play used games on PlayStation 4 in response to Xbox One to the onslaught of generation defining titles, the PS4 has a history like no other in the long years that video gaming has been around. Instances like God of War’s organic modernization of a well-beloved franchise, or taking chances on new IPs such as Horizon Zero Dawn and watching it bloom into instant fan favorite are some key moments in the lifecycle of the PlayStation 4 that sealed its superiority.

The PS4’s legacy will live on for years to come, even in the era of the next-gen with PlayStation 5. You can bet that IGN will be there every step of the way. For everything PlayStation and the next-generation of video games, keep it on IGN.

  1. at 12:45 i cant believe he mentions mlb the show over resident evil 3 remake and doom eternal. 2020 was ps4s best year for sure

    in 2020 we also got remasters for bayonetta/vanquish and yakuza 3-5. was yakuza 0 even mentioned once in the video? also seeing bayonetta again on playstation after we were told for 10 years that nintendo owned her was buffling

  2. Xbox does have some great exclusives I mean forza Motorsport and horizon, halo 5 or halo mcc, gears 5, sea of thieves. I’ve had tons of fun with a lot of those but ps4 did have better exclusives
