Do you remember the days when certain individuals said the console market was dead? Mobile was going to destroy it and that was that. I do too. It seems they got it wrong, as the PS4 has just hit an impressive 70.6 million sales worldwide.
PS4 Brings In The Money
Here’s a rundown of Sony’s latest sales, including PS4 games and PS VR:
- The PS4 has sold more than 70.6m units worldwide
- More than 617.8 million copies of PS4 games have been sold at retail stores globally and through digital downloads on the PS Store
- PS VR has sold more than 2m units
- 150 titles have been released for PS VR so far, achieving more than 12.2 million copies sold at retail stores globally and through digital downloads on the PS Store
Sony’s Andrew House, Chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment is, of course, pretty happy about the news:
“We are delighted that so many people are enjoying the unique entertainment proposition of PlayStation 4 and that an emerging technology like PlayStation VR continues to gain traction.
I cannot thank our fans and partners enough. Their support, since the launch of [sic] very first PlayStation in 1994, has helped to make PlayStation one of the biggest console gaming networks in the world. We will continue to work closely with partners to maintain this momentum and remain steadfast in making PS4 the best place to play.”
There’s plenty more to come to the PS4 as well, with God of War, Detroit: Become Human, Spider-Man, Shadow of the Colossus, Dreams, Days Gone and a small game called The Last of Us Part II all on their way.
As for PS VR, there are 130 games in development including The Inpatient and Bravo Team. Consoles are doomed? Nonsense.
