Thanks to the recent release of the PlayStation 4 Pro and some Black Friday discounts, PlayStation 4 sales have now passed 50 million units worldwide.
Sony confirmed that this figure is sold through to consumers, rather than units sold to retailers. Sony Interactive Entertainment boss Andrew House said: “We’re truly delighted that the PS4 community continues to flourish since launch three years ago. With tremendous support from our fans and partners across the globe, this year we were able to deliver an unprecedented lineup of hardware, including the new slimmer PS4, PS4 Pro, and PlayStation VR. We will continue to provide the best gaming experiences available through our ground-breaking software lineup and network services, as we focus on accelerating our business and expanding the PS4 ecosystem.”
This years Black Friday weekend was the best for Sony’s console since launch and software sales have passed 369.6 million over both physical and digital stores.
The PlayStation 4 may have some way to go to match the sales figures of the PlayStation 3 but, after the announcements at PSX last weekend, the console’s future is exciting.
