Sony PS4 Sales Pass 70 Million Thanks To Black Friday Discount

The Japanese entertainment and technology conglomerate said that it has sold a total of 70.6 million Playstation 4 consoles as of December 3.

It has been the most popular console of this generation by some distance, so it should come as no surprise that Sony today announced that the PS4 has hit another sales landmark. More than 12.2 million games have been sold for PS VR. These are incredible numbers, as Sony now leads the console generation in hardware and software sales. The company also sold more than 617.8 million copes of PS4 games, and a total of 2 million PlayStation VR units.

"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 in a statement. "I can not thank our fans and partners enough". 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. 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 PlayStation family of products and services include PlayStation®4, PlayStation®VR, PlayStation®Vita, PlayStation®3, PlayStation®Store, PlayStation®Plus, PlayStation™Video, PlayStation™Music, PlayStation™Now, PlayStation™Vue, PlayStation®Original and acclaimed PlayStation software titles from SIE Worldwide Studios. Even if it eventually does, it's not inconceivable that Sony will have already turned its attention to the inevitable PlayStation 5 at that point.
