To say that the PlayStation 4 has been a massive hit for Sony would be an understatement. The console has consistently outsold the Xbox One and will soon cross another major milestone. According to the figures officially revealed by Sony, it won’t be long before the PS4 sales cross 100 million units.
Sony did caution last year that the PlayStation 4 sales had fallen for the very first time year-over-year. That has happened once again in 2019 but it’s still a pretty strong showing by Sony’s console. The company sold 17.8 million PS4 units in the fiscal year ending March 31st, slightly down from the 19 million units sold in the previous fiscal year.
However, the company did note that it has now sold 96.8 million PS4 units ever since the console was released. This means that the PlayStation 4 will cross the 100 million units sold milestone faster than the Nintendo Wii did. Sony now expects to sell 16 million PS4s in the ongoing fiscal year.
It also touched on the PlayStation 5 which it recently confirmed is in development. Sony has said that the PlayStation 5 is not going to arrive within the next 12 months, which makes it likely that the new console may be launched around the holiday season in 2020.
