The meme regarding the PlayStation 4's shortage of software is one of this author's favourites. We can understand why people were disgruntled with Sony's exclusives during the Christmas just gone, but a quick look at our internal review document will tell you all that you need to know about 2014's release schedule – there were more titles on PlayStation platforms than ever before.

And people are clearly investing in the Japanese giant's next-gen appliance, as more than 81.8 million retail and downloadable PS4 games have been sold to date. This figure comes alongside confirmation that the company has shifted 18.5 million devices, meaning that we can calculate that each owner has purchased on average about four games apiece thus far.

This is quite a staggering statistic when you think about it – especially when you take into account the abovementioned complaints. It's not a huge surprise, however, when you consider that all of the industry's biggest brands – like Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed, and Battlefield – are present and correct on the manufacturer's new machine. And with a bumper lineup in 2015, the firm must be licking its lips.
