SONY has announced more good news this week as the PS4 continues to go from strength to strength, with the company doubling down on the console’s future.

 

The company revealed that the PlayStation 4 has managed to surpass total lifetime sales of the PS3 – no small feat for a console that’s only been on the market for about five years.

During its Q2 report for the financial year 2018, Sony revealed that lifetime sales of PS4 have now totalled over 86 million. That eclipses the impressive 83 million PS3 units that shipped last generation.

The next landmark in Sony’s sights for the PS4? It must be the PSOne, which has racked up a massive 102.5 million sales in its lifetime. With games like Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima 2 and The Last of Us II still to be released on PS4, it’s likely Sony will see the PS4 become its most popular console ever.

The rest of the Q2 report makes for good reading, too.

Sony reveals that it’s shipped 3.9 million more PS4 units this quarter, meaning revenue for the tech giant has seen a significant 27% rise year-on-year.

As such, the company has adjusted its sales forecast for PS4 units sold over the financial year to a prediction of 17.5 million (you can thank God of War and Spider-Man for the uptick over the past 12 months).

Sony has every reason to be cheerful, too – it’s not just PS4 sales that are doing well: its PS Plus service has also recovered from a hit it took earlier in the year.,



In October, Sony also revealed some stats regarding PS Plus during its earnings call this week.Sony revealed that that PlayStation Plus has helped bring about an 8% upward revision in sales for the company since August.

That means there have been upgrades to both PS+ subscriptions and hardware over the past few months – welcome news to Sony after it was revealed there was a dip in subscribers to PS Plus between March and June.

We look forward to seeing where Sony goes with this momentum in the months and years to come.
