Sony PlayStation 4 sales top 70 million

Nintendo Switch Continues To Dominate Japanese Sales Charts

These are incredible numbers, as Sony now leads the console generation in hardware and software sales.

The PS4 console is selling at a faster rate than the previous PS3 generation.

The PS4 may have surpassed 70 million units worldwide, but that doesn't mean Sony's getting complacent. We unfortunately don't know the split between the base PS4 and the Pro version.

The PS4 has proved to be hugely popular since it was released in late 2013.




When it comes to PlayStation VR, the hardware's latest sales feat certainly indicates a growing interest in the medium, especially since it nearly took a full year for the headset to hit 1 million units after its release. The sales data also reports that more than 617.8M copies of PS4 games have been sold at retail stores globally (this includes digital downloads during the same time-frame). The Japanese games-maker further re-affirms commitment to the PlayStation VR platform with a neat statistic: 150 titles have been released for the virtual reality headset to date. Microsoft has also had an impressive year of growth. There's also more than 130 videogames and other content now in development for the headset states the company, all due to be released by the end of 2018. There is no mention of The Last of Us Part II coming next year, so don't get your hopes up for that arriving in the next 12 months.

That makes it the most successful virtual reality headset now on the market.

Although Nintendo Switch officially won Black Friday and Thanksgiving when it comes to being the best-selling item of the season, the PS4 was definitely no slouch in the sales department either. As newer, better games trickle out that number should increase.
