Sony and PlayStation had another fantastic Holiday in 2017 at least according to the numbers they just shared with us. During the 2017 Holiday season which according to Sony ran from November 20 to December 31, they sold 5.9 million PS4 units worldwide to consumers.
With that the PlayStation 4 has now sold a total of 73.6 million units worldwide to consumers which is just crazy numbers for a system just entering it’s fifth year on the market. You can see some more key points below from Sony including software numbers
- PS4 has sold through to consumers more than 5.9 million units during the 2017 holiday season.
- PS4 has now cumulatively sold through more than 73.6 million units globally as of December 31, 2017.
- More than 55.9 million PS4 games were sold during the 2017 holiday season in retail stores worldwide and through digital downloads on PlayStation®Store. This totals up to 645.0 million copies cumulatively sold as of December 31, 2017.
“Thanks to the continued support from our fans across the globe, we are honored to announce remarkable sales during the holiday season,” said John Kodera, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment in a press release. “PlayStation Network continues to demonstrate spectacular growth, with the number of PlayStation Plus subscribers surpassing 31.5 million, and PS Store recording its largest-ever monthly sales of content in December 2017.”
Kodera continued, “I would like to express my deepest gratitude to our community and our partners for helping us achieve such phenomenal milestones. We promise our unwavering commitment to bring more amazing experiences to our fans, including exclusive games and innovative network services, as PS4 continues to flourish as the best place to play.”
With a stellar lineup of first party games set to release in 2018 including God of War, Spider-Man, Dreams, Detroit: Become Human, Days Gone and more I highly doubt PS4 sales will slow down anytime soon.
