Playstation 4 Sales Crosses 50 Million Units


Sony has now sold more than 50 million PlayStation 4 consoles worldwide, the company announced today.

The figure represents PS4 sales to consumers — not units shipped to retailers — from the console’s debut on Nov. 15, 2013, through yesterday, Dec. 6. Included in the calculation are all three versions of the PS4: the original model, the current “slim” system and the PlayStation 4 Pro.

Sony launched the PS4 Pro, a new iteration of the console with upgraded hardware that supports 4K resolution, just under a month ago. The company replaced the launch model of the PS4 with a slimmed-down redesign in mid-September, and debuted the PlayStation VR headset in mid-October. Sony currently sells the PS4 in 122 countries and regions around the globe.

Hitting the 50 million units mark one week into December keeps Sony on track to meet its guidance for PS4 sales. Upon announcing in May that it had sold 40 million consoles, Sony said it expected to sell an additional 20 million units by the end of its current fiscal year, which concludes March 31, 2017.
