Sony has announced that the PlayStation 4 console has sold 50 million units worldwide. That’s thanks to the best Black Friday week in history for the console, according to Sony.

We previously reported that the PS4 could have sold as many as 2 million units during Black Friday week.

As for software sales, 369 million PS4 games have been sold so far, counting both retail and digital sales on the PS4. That’s over 6 games per PS4 console on average.

Sony didn’t reveal how many units the recently released PlayStation VR headset sold.

    Very cool! I’ll be getting my ps4 pro this Friday. The legacy continues

    • That guy

      It’s not the Pro that’s selling it’s the Slim.

      • TomDobo

        The pro sold out in many markets according to Sony. I think its all variants of PS4 selling well.

        • That guy

          No! The Slim sold far more than the Pro. Mostly because of the low price!

          • TomDobo

            No what ? The slim may have sold more than the pro but that doesnt mean the pro never sold out.

          • That guy

            If the store only had one.

          • TomDobo

            You clearly dont know what your talking about. Thanks for your input though.

          • That guy

            Just because the Pro isn’t taking off is no reason to be that why. You can blame Sony for pushing the Slim on Black Friday

          • TomDobo

            Sony has said the ps4 pro has sold out in many different markets during release and black friday. I understand the slim is the big seller due to being cheaper but the pro is selling really well also.

          • That guy

            Then they most have had a very low number of Pros.

          • TomDobo

            Not necessarily. We dont know actual numbers obviously. But just because the slim is cheap doesnt mean the pro is suffering.

          • Latham

            In any case it would be impossible to say either way “what” suffering is in this scenario.

            There’s essentially 3 main SKU’s in the wild now. Two of which are virtually identical and one more exotic. It doesn’t take a genius to understand this is of course well planned on Sony’s part. As you’d expect. One brand. In the end the brand wins…

          • barbqribs

            I would agree that the Pro is selling well, but I haven’t seen any store Walmart/Target/Best Buy/HHGregg where I live not have any in stock or plenty sitting on shelves. Even Black Friday, there were plenty of Pros and almost no slims to be found.

          • Latham

            If you’re conversing with a poster called “That Guy” don’t waste your time. The guys incapable of impartial responses or attitudes towards any brand but Nintendo.

            Now, I’m a huge fan of Nintendo’s work. But, that’s not an exclusive kudo’s at all.

            Fanboys…
            /_-)

            If I could say anything about the topic if it is that guy. Do what everyone else already has…

          • That guy

            You know I think it’s time for you to get a life.

          • hi v3.0

            You make zero sense lol

          • Zactu

            True but I bought the Pro myself.

      • James Robert Marot

        Pro or slim still maketh the PlayStation That guy brother

  • That guy

    Now the real question is how much money did Sony loss on this?

    • atadakimasu

      lol how much they they made. I don’t think they are selling at loss

      • That guy

        Have you seen what they are selling Slims for. So yeah they are losing money on them. This is more about increasing the size of the install base. It all about software sales. That’s where the real money is!

        • hi v3.0

          “As for software sales, 369 million PS4 games have been sold so far, counting both retail and digital sales on the PS4. That’s over 6 games per PS4 console on average.”
          Software sales are pretty good if you ask me !

          And yeah during the first year or 2 each PS4 was selling at a loss but now they’re making profit from it, the Slim is made out of cheaper materials so they’re not losing money at all

          • That guy

            The thing is not everyone is still buying games for their PS4.

          • hi v3.0

            6 games per console on average, enough said
            Plus with the Slim/Pro the console has a lot of new users recently

          • That guy

            link!

          • hi v3.0
          • That guy

            In 3 years that’s not good for a console that’s at 50 million now.

          • Gotcha47

            Well lucky us that you are not the ceo’s of sony. In that case there would be no more console because the consoles you make are kiddy consoles and they do not sell ! So keep on negative, sales prove you wrong and if you have the name of being not smart or even have the info on it. They just say , lol and move on.

          • That guy

            You do know Sony is still losing money?

          • Gotcha47

            Hahahaha that guy lives in his own very small littel world…..

          • That guy

            It’s called the real world bro.

          • hi v3.0

            OMFG YOU 2 PISS ME OFF SOOOOO BAD πŸ™

  • Latham

    Nicely done Sony.

    When PS4 first released and looking at Xbox One as well. It seemed like console sales in general would be way down overall. But, PS4 performance is an encouraging sign for the console platform in general. No reason why PS4 can’t sell another 15-20m before discontinuation. Maybe even more.

    The pro’s gonna help there too.
    Again, nicely done. Really decent platform.

    • That guy

      Pro’s dead

      • barbqribs

        I would say that about the VR before the Pro. VR sets collecting dust at Gamestop and Best Buy.

        • That guy

          I’ll give you that.

          • Gotcha47

            Lucky these guys are not the ceo’s of sony…..

          • That guy

            lucky for Sony you not CEO.

      • That guy

        The thing is everyone else can see what I’ve put down. Also you can’t fight back! So this is more to my benefit than yours.

        • hi v3.0

          So this whole time you wanna fight huh

          • Gotcha47

            That guy should stay and play whith his nintendo. That is wat kids play ! Did nintende actually sell something. Or The xbox, oh they are waiting for there last hope the scorpion…..

          • hi v3.0

            You mad bro?

          • Latham

            You and “That Guy” actually have more in common than you’d think. You’re both flaming fanboys for your preferred brands.
