PlayStation 4 surpasses 70M sales as PSVR gains traction

07 December 2017

This represents sales of around 4 years out from the system's November 15, 2013 launch, keeping the PS4 roughly in line with the sales of the PlayStation 2.

In fact, Sony has been doing well all across the board. 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. 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).

House also added that "I can not thank our fans and partners enough", stating that "their support, since the launch of very first PlayStation in 1994, has helped to make PlayStation one of the biggest console gaming network in the world".

According to statistics from VGChartz, Microsoft has sold more than 30 million Xbox One units as of October 2017. Their support, since the launch of the very first PlayStation in 1994, has helped to make PlayStation one of the biggest console gaming networks in the world. House also further reflected Sony's sentiment that "we will continue to work closely with partners to maintain this momentum and remain steadfast in making PS4 the best place to play".

Amazingly, even with these numbers, the PlayStation 4 still has yet to touch the sales records of any of its predecessors. "Our business model involves selling both the game console and the software for it, so we're working to get more customers paying continuously for content, for example through paid subscription services". After struggling during the PS3 years, Sony came into the current generation swinging. PlayStation players can expect to dig into titles like Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, God of War, Marvel's Spider-Man, and Days Gone among others.
