PlayStation reveals that PlayStation 4 has surpassed 106 million consoles sold
(Business) The PlayStation 5 logo (pictured above) looks a lot like the PlayStation 4 logo. But if you look closely, you will see that the number “5” is one more than “4” The company revealed that PlayStation 4 has surpassed 106 million consoles sold. That is up from 101.63 million systems sold in October, when Sony last reported the number. Sony has also sold 5 million PlayStation VR headsets.
On the software side, consumers have purchased over 1.15 billion games for PS4 worldwide. That comes as Sony touts 103 million monthly active users and 38.8 million PS Plus subscribers. For context, Sony sold a total of 14.4 million PS4 systems in 2019. That is down from 18 million in 2018. Software was up to 274 million copies in 2019 from 231 million in 2018. And PS Plus subscriptions were at 36.3 million in 2018.
Sony is taking a victory lap with the PlayStation 4, which has dominated the console gaming space since debuting in fall 2013. The success of the console is likely why Sony is changing as little as possible about the PlayStation 5 from the PlayStation 4.
The PS5 is faster and more powerful with features like hardware ray tracing. And Ryan listed a number of other generational improvements that we already knew about from Sony’s previous announcements. Those include 3D audio, fast SSD storage, and support for Ultra HD Blu-ray discs. The system is also getting an updated controller with haptic feedback and adaptive-resistance triggers.
