Sony today announced that this milestone had been surpassed as of December 3rd 2017, so this number takes into account all the units sold during last month's Black Friday deals, which saw as much as $100 cut off the headset in various bundles.
The PlayStation 4 may be entering its fifth year on the market, but the console's momentum hasn't slowed at all.
In fact, Sony has been doing well all across the board. 617.8 million PS4 games have been sold through retail and digital downloads, while 12.2 million PSVR games have been sold through the same channels. Headset sales have likely been buoyed by the continued success of PlayStation 4, which has cumulatively sold through more than 70.6 million units to consumers worldwide.
House also added that "I can not thank our fans and partners enough", stating that "their support, since the launch of very first PlayStation in 1994, has helped to make PlayStation one of the biggest console gaming network in the world". There are also 130 games and video contents in development for PlayStation VR that are expected to launch by the end of 2018 including Homestar VR, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, and Bravo Team.
Just ahead of this week's PlayStation Experience, Sony has given us an update on PlayStation VR (PSVR) sales, confirming that two million units have been sold. Their support, since the launch of very first PlayStation in 1994, has helped to make PlayStation one of the biggest console gaming network in the world. No other console has attained these many sales in such a short amount of time, not even the Playstation PS4. After struggling during the PS3 years, Sony came into the current generation swinging. In January, highly-anticipated titles such as Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker's Memory, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, Lost Sphear, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Monster Hunter: World and Dissidia: Final Fantasy NT are all due out.
