PlayStation 4 vs PlayStation 4 Pro

  • Sony’s PlayStation 4 has now sold over 70 million units.
  • The PlayStation 4 is, by far, the most popular console in the world.
  • Over 7 million PlayStation 4 consoles were sold in the last five months.

Sony’s PlayStation 4 continues to dominate Microsoft’s Xbox One and Nintendo’s Switch. As of December 3, the PlayStation 4 reached 70.6 million consoles sold. That puts Sony in the lead by a mile.

Though Microsoft no longer reports sales numbers for its Xbox One console, the best estimates put the Xbox One somewhere in the realm of 30 – 40 million units sold.

In just the last five months, from July 1 to December 3, the company sold over 7 million PlayStation 4 consoles. Doesn’t sound like a lot? Even 2017’s hottest new console, Nintendo’s Switch, sold just 4.7 million units in its first four months. Nintendo estimates it’ll sell around 14 million Switch consoles in its first year, while Sony’s expecting to move a whopping 18 million PlayStation 4 consoles in the same amount of time.
