The holidays are usually good to everybody and if you’ve been nice enough, maybe your parents got you a really cool gift for being such an awesome person. Apparently, a LOT of people got a PlayStation 4 over the holidays because Sony Interactive Entertainment Hong Kong Limited Singapore Branch (SIES) today announced a new sales milestone for the PlayStation 4 as it has now cumulatively sold through more than 91.6 million units globally as of December 31, 2018!
Over 5.6 million PS4 units and more than 50.7 million PS4 games were sold through globally during the 2018 holiday season, which sums up to 876 million PS4 games cumulatively sold through worldwide as of December 31, 2018! These ar absolutely mind boggling numbers and it just further cements the dominance of the PS4 this generation as the console to beat.
Another contributing factor to the fantastic milestone is because of a game of the year nominee in Marvel’s Spider-Man, which launched in September 2018 and has cumulatively sold through more than 9 million copies worldwide as of November 25, 2018.
John Kodera, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment had this to say about the milestone – “Thanks to the continued support from our fans during the holiday season, we are pleased to announce that PS4 has reached 91.6 million units globally. We are also happy to announce that the monthly active users of PlayStation Network continues to show strong growth, and has surpassed 90 million as of end of November 2018,” Additionally, “I would like to express my deepest gratitude to our passionate community around the globe, and our partners, for helping us achieve these milestones. This year, we will bring more enhanced experiences to our fans along with a highly anticipated lineup of games that are only possible on PS4. As we look toward the next PS4 milestone, SIE will continue to evolve, and we will further expand the platform to deliver the best interactive entertainment experiences to the world.”
With the PS4 leading the pack going into the next console generation, we can only expect bigger and better things for the future of the PlayStation!
