Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that following the 2018 Holiday season, the PlayStation 4 has now sold through more than 91.6 million units worldwide as of December 31, 2018. Check out some more sales updates that Sony provided below.
- PlayStation 4 hardware sold through more than 5.6 million units worldwide during the 2018 holiday season.
- PlayStation 4 games sold through more than 50.7 million units worldwide during the 2018 holiday season, which adds up to a total of 876 million PlayStation 4 games cumulatively sold through worldwide as of December 31, 2018.
- Marvel’s Spider-Man, launched in September 2018, has cumulatively sold through more than nine million copies worldwide as of November 25, 2018.
While sales are down from the 20.2 million the PlayStation 4 sold in 2017, the 18 million units sold in 2018 make this the second best year for the PlayStation 4 in its lifetime which isn’t too bad for a system in it’s fifth year on the market.

“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. 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.”
