PS4 has sold over 91 million units, Spider-Man 9+ mil, PSN 90+ mil MAU (CES 2019)

May 1, 2010
Just announced at CES

Sony Interactive Entertainment’s PlayStation 4 is still a sales juggernaut. The company has sold more than 91.6 million PS4s since launching the system in November 2013.

SIE also revealed that it sold through more than 5.6 million PS4s during the 2018 holidays alone. That data only includes sales from November 19 through December 31.

Those hardware sales are due in large part to PS4’s strong software library. The publisher revealed that customers purchased more than 50.7 million PS4 games between November 19 and December 31. Marvel’s Spider-Man, a Sony first-party game, was near the top of that pack with more than 9 million copies sold through as of November 25.

“Thanks to the continued support from our fans during the holiday season, we are pleased to announce that PS4 has reached 91.6 million units globally,” SIE boss John Kodera said in a statement. “We are also happy to announce that the monthly active users of PlayStation Network continues to show strong growth, and has surpassed 90 million as of end of November 2018. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to our passionate community around the globe, and our partners, for helping us achieve these milestones.”

Sony is also looking ahead. For 2019, the SIE chief executive did not get into specifics, but he did promise that the company has more to come for the PS4.

“This year, we will bring more enhanced experiences to our fans along with a highly anticipated lineup of games that are only possible on PS4,” said Kodera. “As we look toward the next PS4 milestone, SIE will continue to evolve, and we will further expand the platform to deliver the best interactive entertainment experiences to the world.”

These numbers are insane and the craziest part is that it feels like the PS4 is just getting started. I feel it could be on the market for another 2-3 years easily before PS5 comes out.
yeah no PS5 is coming out next year. we need less games to run at a low fps.

to me. looking like. ~125-130 million lt sales for ps4.

I wouldn't be surprised if it would end up breaking records.
Playstation has been the number one brand kids have been talking about for quite a while now.
Pretty much every family with kids I know, the kids have their own PS4. Haven't seen the Xbox or the Switch in any of those households.
Fortnite and surprisingly Farming Simulator have been the games I've seen them all been super much into.

Congrats to Sony! I myself got a Pro this holiday to compliment my Xbox one X, really glad to see a healthy video game industry.

80% of the rising suicide rates in America is just Microsoft's corporate office.
Watch closely Nintendo fans. This is what a REAL success looks like.
lol you two

I got that reference, ha ha! Funny times....
were these numbers calculated before or after the announcement of the pervo anime games being "censored?" Because from the outrage on the thread here that had to amount to easily 10 - 15 million in lost sales.
It seems after every outrage Sony does even better.....Maybe these outrages were staged by Sony themselves....Hmmm! o_O


The nicest person on this forum

Gotta hand it to them, they've recovered from the PS3 mistakes very nicely. Assuming they don't do anything crazy with price, I'll be there day one for the PS5 because Sony very obviously knows the video game market and how to make a successful console.
After PS2's success Sony became cocky and they thought they could sell console with high price with barely any game when it first launched. Lets hope for PS5 Sony again doesn't get cocky because of PS4's success.

OK phew. Sony should still be around 91 million come may.
The policy affects Japanese developers more than the consumers as they have to hold inspections with Playstation HQ in English-only and only during US hours. It may come to the point where they just don't want to deal with the shenanigans. That would eventually affect the consumers as they will go for the platforms that do have the titles they are interested in.

Nintendo pretty much has the advantage over Sony when it comes to 3rd party developers and why the Switch version of certain games get preferential treatment. I recall NIS making less-than-glowing comments for Sony while they were pretty happy about their relationship with Nintendo.
