Sony Interactive Entertainment announced the latest milestones for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR as well as PS4 and PS VR games.

 

The PlayStation 4 has cumulatively sold through more than 70.6 million units worldwide as of December 3, 2017. Over 617.8 million copies of PlayStation 4 games have been sold at retail stores globally and through digital downloads on the PlayStation Store as of December 3 as well.

 

As for Sony’s virtual reality headset, the PlayStation VR cumulatively sold through over 2 million units worldwide and sold over 12.2 million copies of its 150 titles via retail and digital sales as of December 3.

 

Here’s a quote from Andrew House, Chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment:

“We are delighted that so many people are enjoying the unique entertainment proposition of PlayStation 4 and that an emerging technology like PlayStation VR continues to gain traction. I cannot thank our fans and partners enough. 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.  We will continue to work closely with partners to maintain this momentum and remain steadfast in making PS4 the best place to play.”

 

We can expect to see these numbers continue rising next year as we see the release of several big titles in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, Monster Hunter: World, Yakuza Kiwami 2, God of War, and Shadow of the Colossus. 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.
