PS4 Sales Exceed 70 Million, Sony Announces

Nintendo Switch

Media Create Sales Shows Switch Dominating, Xenoblade 2 Opening Strong

"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", said Andrew House, Chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment.

On the flip side, Sony's consoles tend to sell extremely well for long periods of time, while even Nintendo's most-popular console eventually fizzled in sales around year four after the explosive early popularity that propelled it to crossing the 100-million-sold mark turned out to be a passing fad.

As for Sony's virtual reality headset, the PlayStation VR cumulatively sold through over 2 million units worldwide and sold over 12.2 million copies of its 150 titles via retail and digital sales as of December 3.

As of December 3, the console of PlayStation 4 has accumulated 70.6 million sales worldwide, bringing together sales of the PS4 Standard and the PS4 Pro.

The Switch passed 2.5 million units sold in the country, after only nine months from its release on March 3rd.

Sony Interactive Entertainment announced the latest milestones for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR as well as PS4 and PS VR games. "I can not thank our fans and partners enough".

To say that these numbers are impressive would be an understatement.

Of course, things can change in a heartbeat next year as Sony looks to start 2018 swinging.

Sony launched the PS4 in November 2013 and quickly established a firm lead over its leading competitor, the Xbox One. The $100 Black Friday discount helped sales of the PSVR as well.

Looking ahead to 2018, PS4 has a number of major exclusives due for release, including God of War, Detroit: Become Human, and Spider-Man.
