PlayStation 4 PS4 Sony Sales Australia 1

While the PlayStation 4's sales aren't as much of a surprise as they once were, it's worth remembering that the system is still smashing sales records around the globe. The latest set of data reveals that Sony's new-gen system accounted for 59 per cent of all home console hardware sales in Australia last year, outselling its nearest competitor – the Xbox One, of course – by 84 per cent.

Even more impressive, though, is that the company claims that it enjoyed its best ever Christmas period, with sales outperforming all those in its long and storied history. It's pretty mental stuff when you consider that PlayStation has been no slouch over the years, with the PS4 still tracking ahead of the PlayStation 2. Can this train ever be stopped?
