Sony Reveals The Most Played PS4 Games by Accident


Have you ever wondered which is the most popular game on PlayStation 4 and just how many people have played the game? If your answer is yes, then you should be pleased to know that Sony has made a big mistake and revealed the actual player counts of its games. Which game do you think holds the number one spot?

Nonetheless, this all started when Sony released the My PS4 Life feature which automatically compiles a video with the player’s highlights and some clever PlayStations 4 were able to take information from there and figure out the number of people that have played certain games.

My PS4 Life

Sony is always looking for new ways to make the PlayStation 4 more fun and exciting. This is how Sony came up with My PS4 Life which complies a cool video of the player’s highlights. The highlights also list exactly how many people have completed certain achievements and that number can be used to figure out how many people have actually played the game.

The Reddit user “gamstat” is the one who figured out this trick. The Redditor gave the following example: “33,764 players earned the “Photo Bomber” trophy in Fallout 76. And on playstation.com it’s revealed that 8,3% of all players got this trophy. Simple math: the total number of people who have played Fallout 76 on PS4 = 33,764 * 100% / 8,3% = 406,795”.
