Sony’s only upheld 40 million PlayStation 4 consoles sole given launch in Nov 2013. 


That creates PlayStation 4 a top-selling diversion console in a universe during a moment, over Microsoft’s Xbox One (~21 million) and Nintendo’s Wii U (~13 million).

About one-tenth of those owners are new owners, as of a past few months: Sony sole only over 4 million PlayStation 4 consoles between early January 2016 and May 22, 2016. That puts sales in a area of 1 million sole each month, that keeps it sealed in as a fastest-selling PlayStation diversion console of all time.

This isn’t a new position for Sony’s PlayStation 4 — a console has been on tip (in terms of sales) given it launched, some-more or less. There’s been a occasional blip, with Xbox One outselling PlayStation 4 here and there, though a PS4 has largely dominated sales (and a courtesy of millions) given it initial launched in Nov 2013.

How distant forward is Sony compared to the competition? Pretty far, during this point.

We know that Nintendo’s console, a Wii U, is offered terribly. Compared to Sony’s 40 million PlayStation 4 consoles, Nintendo had sole only underneath 13 million when it final reported numbers behind in Mar 2016. Worse? The Wii U has been accessible for a full year longer than a PlayStation 4.


As distant as Microsoft goes, a association stopped stating worldwide sales numbers for a Xbox One many months ago. Instead, Microsoft trumpets a use numbers — how many hours people spend personification Xbox One games, for example. The closest we have to numbers is an estimation formed on something that diversion publisher EA pronounced during an financier call, that put a Xbox One in a area of 20 million sole (this was behind in late Jan 2016, so we’d design another one to 3 million sole given that was reported).

With Sony’s PlayStation VR headset rising this fall, and great-looking, highly-anticipated games like “The Last Guardian” rising on a PlayStation 4 this year, it’s doubtful that Sony will remove a stick position anytime soon.
