​The PS4 is the fastest selling console in Sony’s history

Tops 30 million sales since launch

Sony has revealed its PlayStation 4 is the fastest selling console in the company’s history. More than 30.2 million units has been sold worldwide in the brief time since it launched.

The growth has been driven by a strong range of gaming titles, said Andrew House, President and chief executive of Sony Computer Entertainment.

“We are sincerely grateful that gamers across the globe have continued to choose PS4 as the best place to play since launch two years ago.

“We are committed to bringing engaging games and entertainment services to users worldwide. Thanks to the support of our partners, PS4 continues to be the premier platform for game and interactive entertainment innovation.”

Upcoming games include Dragon Quest Builders, Bloodborne The Old Hunters Edition and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

Application developers alike have since thrown support behind the Sony PlayStation ecosystem. The console hosts a portfolio of on-demand and streaming services, including Netflix, Stan, Spotify, ABC iView, Plus7, SBS On Demand and Quickflix.

Sony’s PlayStation 4 is being sold in 124 countries and regions across the globe.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
