Sony revealed some interesting statistics on PS4 during a 'behind closed doors' press event in the U.S yesterday.

According to the slides on show (as noted by IGN), "PS4's are generally sold out at all retailers although regular supply is refreshing the channel," In addition, it was revealed that Call of Duty: Ghosts, FIFA 14, and Battlefield 4 are the three best-selling games on the platform so far. Sony also claims to have increased its market share among "heavy gamers".

Other statistics revealed by John Koller, PlayStation’s Vice President of Marketing are that PS4 gamers average a collective 34 million hours a week playing games on the console; 50 million when you take entertainment options into account.

In addition, 90 percent of PlayStation 4 consoles are connected to the Internet, while so far, gamers have shared gameplay and screenshots 48 million times so far. Keeping the stats coming, 1.7 million hours have been spent livestreaming gameplay on Twitch and Ustream and 172 million hours have been played online with PS4 to date.

Finally, it was revealed that PlayStation Plus subscriptions are up 90 percent since the console’s launch.

Probably better to raise a ticket to ask that question, they don't tend to answer queries on these forums. More for us all to chat...and moan.

Says it all about XB1 at E3 when over 400,000 console owners haven't even connected to the internet.
