PS4 shipments reach 57 million worldwide

Sony has announced that its massively successful PS4 console has shipped 57 million units worldwide as of December 2017.

The big increase is thanks to a great Holiday season for the PS4 — the new PS4 Slim and the PS4 Pro both did well in the marketplace. In fact, the PS4 Pro did better than Sony anticipated. That’s according to company CFO Kenichiro Yoshida.

Overall gaming revenue increased and it still remains the biggest and most profitable division at Sony.

Sony still expects fiscal year PS4 sales to be at 20 million. The fiscal year ends on March 31st, 2017.

    I can’t believe the PS4 is already 3 and 1/2 years old. soon we will start hearing rumors about the PS5 time goes by pretty fast. Keep up the good work sony

    • That guy

      The old Wii still sold faster and more.

      • Kaiwla

        Who cares? And that was only because of the “gimmick-controller”.

        • That guy

          Sony was hoping VR would do the same for the PS4.

          • Kaiwla

            True. But PS4 have been success even without VR. It’s just “extra-gimmick”.

          • That guy

            But not as big a success as the old Wii.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            The PS4 isn’t even done yet kiddo. While the Wii sold handsomely, the PS4 is still on a faster pace than the PS2, which also has higher sales than the Wii. If you have a hard time understanding, it simply means that PS4’s chances of passing the Wii are quite good, regardless of VR. No use being upset.

          • That guy

            Will you stop being a PS4 fanboy.

          • Kaiwla

            Will you stop being a Wii fanboy.

          • That guy

            I never had a Wii.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Being realistic isn’t fanboying my friend. Hating anything Sony, certainly is. We all know you’re a Nintendo fanboy. Hence why you lurk Nintendo Today all day. ;P

          • That guy

            You’re not being realistic you’re being a fanboy.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            You don’t see it as realistic, because your inner fanboy refuses to listen to reason. Nice try projecting, but it fails each time.

          • That guy

            I don’t see it as realistic because it isn’t realistic!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            You just proved my point. ;P

          • That guy

            You had no point.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Point proven once again. ;P

          • That guy

            But there was no point.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Further proving me right. ;P

          • That guy

            That you have to point.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I’ve had a point. You’re just too blind. ;P

          • That guy

            This marriage is working out.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I want a divorce.

          • That guy

            Okay you get the kids and I’ll take the money.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Half that money is mine.

          • That guy

            Too bad! You still get the kids.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Too bad. The savings was transferred to my bank account. ;P

          • That guy

            damn

          • Gotcha47

            Well people are great in saying the facts are not the facts especially if they are banned from a system due to there own stupidity. I like my ps4 and nintendo old or new is history. So why bother buying something that is already obsolete. Better buy a xbox or a ps4 , they own the market. Nintendo is already giving out games for the smart phone and tablet market…. Why would that be ?

          • That guy

            The hell are you on about?

          • Gotcha47

            Seems you have played to long with kiddy stuff….. That explains the lack of thought and conclusions.

          • That guy

            I don’t play COD.

          • Why should he? I mean I’m a Nintendo fanboy myself but coming to a Sony-community and asking ppl to stop loving what they love to play is just waste of your and their time. I think you’re trolling there and I believe you could do better than that.

      • The old Wii was a completely different system. For what it is, the PS4 is selling very good. It’s a system that’s focusing on a pretty specific audience with a higher pricetag and more expensive software than the Wii. Plus it has a competitor with Microsoft who pretty much splits the market by doing pretty much the same thing.

        Nintendo went for casuals with the Wii with a low pricetag, cheap software and motion controls and it worked out perfectly fine. But that doesn’t mean that everyone not reaching up to that is a loser. It just means that Nintendo made a lot of right decisions for once and hopefully they’ll get there again one day. But I don’t see what this really has to do with this headline. It’s like comparing a cheap Android phone to an expensive iPhone. I mean sure, you can do that, but it makes barely any sense. Either ppl bought a Wii next to their PS3 or they bought a Wii because they weren’t as deep into videogames.

      • Gotcha47

        The old Wii, the old ps1 , ps 2 sold even better then the old wii. The new wii did not sell at all, the new ps4 sells very good.

        • That guy

          New Wii ?

          • Gotcha47

            Hahahaha That Guy funny !! No wonder you like the nintendo

          • That guy

            ??

      • freddy_uk

        Also cheaper and rubbish

        • That guy

          Ass hurt much?

      • freddy_uk

        Nar it didnt.
        6 million on year 3 .
        ps4 almost 60 million on year 3.

        go back to maths

        https://www.nintendo.co.uk/News/2009/Wii-sales-in-UK-top-six-million-in-less-than-three-years-251830.html

        • That guy

          Almost 6 million isn’t the same as 6 million kid.

  • TomDobo

    Great news. I think black friday is going to be the cheapest ever this year and hopefully sony can shift a few more million to make it around 65-70 million units by this time next year.

  • That guy

    Shipped not sold!

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      They already said shipped. Reading isn’t your forte, is it?

      • That guy

        I’m telling everyone who thinks they mean sold. Because I’m good that way bro!

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          I’m sure people can read just fine. There’s no need for you to recap. You only do so to troll. Nothing more. 😛

          • That guy

            No they can’t.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Whatever helps you sleep at night.

          • k2lu

            Looks like I’m not the only one who thinks That guy hangs out at PS4 Daily to troll.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Indeed.

          • That guy

            I did get a good night’s sleep.

    • While you’re right, they still wouldn’t ship 57million if only 20 million would be interested. The numbers follow demand and that’s quite a good sign.
