PlayStation 2019 Wrap-Up: How to see your year in PS4 gaming

We haven’t yet hit the onslaught of video game releases for 2020, with those not really starting until around March. While you wait for new games, however, PlayStation is giving you the chance to reminisce on your last year in gaming with its PlayStation 2019 Wrap-Up.

The PlayStation 2019 Wrap-Up gives you a snapshot of your 2019 gaming history on PlayStation 4, breaking down your time spent playing various games, sorting them into categories, and even providing you with a neat title that you can wear proudly to show your love for a particular genre.

Getting your own PlayStation 2019 Wrap-Up is remarkably simple. Here’s how to do it.

In order to view your PlayStation 2019 Wrap-Up, all you have to do is follow this link to the official PlayStation website. From there, log in with the same account credentials you use for the PlayStation account on PS4, wait a few seconds, and all of your information will be displayed on the page.

At the very head of the page, you’ll see your top three most-played games of the year. In our case, it was MLB The Show 19, followed by Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

Below that, your top genre will be selected and it will give you information on how many games you played in that genre, as well as your total playtime and trophies you earned in the genre.

The PlayStation 2019 Wrap-Up provides your total hours of gameplay across all titles as well and shows how many hours were played locally, how many were in PlayStation VR, your longest marathon, and on how many days you played during the year. However, the information on online play appears to be inconsistent — ours said we never played online all year, which is not true.

Lastly, you’ll see information on the total number of trophies you earned across all four categories, as well as the total number of free games you downloaded through PlayStation Plus. For us, that total was higher than the number of games we played in 2019, so we can stay busy for months to come, if not years.

Don’t forget to grab this absurdly fun game on PS Plus this month
A whale opens its mouth in Nobody Saves the World.

While it's not yet clear what most of 2024 will look like for PlayStation owners, Sony is starting the year strong. Next week, it'll drop The Last of Us Part II Remastered as its first major exclusive. A few weeks later, it'll dip into live service with Helldivers 2. The rest of the year is a bit of a mystery from there, but it looks like PS Plus will help fill in some potential gaps.

To kick off 2024, PlayStation owners can claim three games at no additional charge with their PS Plus Essential subscription. The list is headlined by Game Awards nominee A Plague Tale: Requiem and the ultra-stylish Evil West. Both games are worth adding to your library, but there's one title that you especially can't miss: the absurdly entertaining Nobody Saves the World.

2023 gaming report card: how did PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo score?
The Xbox Series X and PS5

It's been a long year filled with massive games, but we've finally reached the end of 2023. There's no question that this year will be remembered as one of the all-time best for new releases -- and one of the worst for game creators -- but it's been a whirlwind 12 months for the "big three" console makers. PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo all had pivotal years, though in entirely different ways. While the Nintendo Switch took a victory lap, the PS5 entered an experimental era. The Xbox Series X, on the other hand, finally delivered the suite of exclusives fans had been waiting for ... with mixed results.

To reflect on such an eventful year, we've decided to take on the role of teacher and hand each company a final grade for 2023. We took several factors into account here. Exclusive games are a major component of the final grade, naturally, but we also looked at how well each system maintained its wider ecosystem. That includes supporting services like PS Plus and Game Pass and evaluating how new hardware changed how we play.
