As you probably know, Sony recently launched "My PS4 Life", allowing players to share their gaming experience.
But what is also important, in every video they disclose the exact number of players who received some trophy. Combined with the % of people who obtained the trophy (this data is available for every game on the PlayStation website), we can estimate the total number of players in this game.
Here, 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.
The same trick can be done with every PlayStation 4 game – you just need a video where it's someone's rarest trophy. But better not too rare – 0.1% share doesn't provide a good estimate.
Long story short – here's about sixty PS4 games with an estimated number of players – http://gamstat.com/
(There's also a link to every video so that all calculations can be double-checked). I will add more games soon, any wishes?
Note: the number of players is not updated in real time, there are indications they are from somewhere between 20 November and 4 December. So it won't say much about recently released games.
P.S. About 3.5 months ago the number of players in God of War was calculated exactly the same way when developer published the number of players who earned the Platinum trophy.
