It goes without saying that Sony’s PS4 console is one of the most popular consoles in the market today, and based on the latest figures, it looks like Sony has pretty much conquered this particular generation of consoles. This is because in the company’s latest earnings, they have revealed that they have sold a whopping 100 million PS4 consoles to date.
It has been reported that sales of the PS4 are actually slowing down, but in all honesty, it doesn’t really come as a surprise. This is because we are nearing the end of the current generation of consoles, where both Microsoft and Sony have actually confirmed that they do have next-gen consoles already in the works.
To date, Microsoft has yet to share the official sales figures of their Xbox One, but it’s probably safe to assume that Sony’s got this in the bag. The Nintendo Switch is also doing pretty well, where they have enjoyed certain accolades like being the best-selling console during Cyber Monday back in 2018.
Over in Japan, Nintendo also managed to surpass the PS4’s lifetime sales with the Switch, but that’s just for one market and we reckon Nintendo is definitely quite a long way away from catching up to Sony. It will be interesting to see how far Sony will get before the PS5 is released.
