How come Sony has low sales with their exclusives?

The PS4 has sold more than 100 million. Why are the numbers of exclusives sold so low? Why do people buy the PS4 to play PC games like Fortnite and call of duty? Why not just buy a PC?

    some of their exclusives are single player only.  god of war.  spiderman.  uncharted.  etc.  some people just like online gaming.  so they pick shooters like call of duty, fornite, pubg.  

    "just buy a PC".  there are a lot of PC parts out there, brands, and you need to know what you want to play certain games.  if you are a newbie at PC gaming, it may be too much effort to learn all the parts like RAM, GPC, processors etc to make sure you can play the games and future games.  consoles are designed for all games that come out and designed to last ten plus years if taken care of properly.  

    also, entry level gaming PCs cans still cost $600 plus.

    A good gaming PC costs well over $1000. A PS4 costs like $300.

    Best guess would be that some of the prices of the games these days is taking the piss.

    In "the old days" (like '90's + 2000's) the latest games would sit between £19.99 to £35.

    These days it seems common for most of them to have price tags of £35 to £45, which is just enough extra for most people to have to think a bit longer about whether or not to take the plunge and get it.

    -) Each exclusive games has different genres, and you can't expect that everyone has the same taste in games.

    -) CoD were always a console-oriented game, and it has been that way since the PS3/X360 era.

    -) Consoles is still a closed environment, so you got a very low chance to meet cheaters that usually available in PC (PUBG or even Battlefield V is currently still plagued by cheaters).

    -) PC got a higher entry cost, while you can get consoles really cheap nowadays (you can get it less than $200).
