About a week ago, Sony posted a press release containing a whole bunch of impressive numbers. The PS4 has sold 91.6 million units as of 31st December 2018, while Marvel's Spider-Man has sold a staggering 9 million copies since its September launch. However, something that passed us by was the overall situation regarding software on Sony's successful console.
As pointed out by Colin Moriarty on Twitter, the attach rate for games on PS4 - or the software tie ratio, to be more precise - is very healthy indeed. Going back to Sony's original report, the company estimates that 876 million PS4 games were sold by the end of 2018. If you divide this between the total number of consoles sold, you're looking at an average of about 9.6 games per PS4. In other words, every PS4 owner has nearly ten games each. That's a pretty amazing result.
Of course, this is just an average -- some of you will only have one or two games, while others could potentially own hundreds. It's not unusual for enthusiasts to own a high number of titles, but for the tie ratio to average out at 9.6 shows that even more casual gamers are buying games more often.
