The Sony Playstation 4 continues its dominations as the most popular gaming console in the world. It has now sold more than 70 million units, making it the best-loved way to play games worldwide. More than 7 million of these consoles were sold in just the last five months!
Selling far more than the Microsoft Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, as of the 3rd of December 2017, the Sony Playstation 4 was able to reach a total of 70.6 millions consoles sold. This puts Sony in the lead by a mile -comparable, possibly, to the massive preference online games for the slots NZ and the rest of the world has to offer, with more players opting for these games than any other.
Playstation 4 Sales Double the Closest Competition
Specifically, the sales for the Sony Playstation 4 are more than double that of its closest competition, the Microsoft Xbox One. Although Microsoft is no longer reporting its sales numbers for the Xbox One console, the best estimates put its Xbox One retail count at somewhere between 30 and 40 million units sold.
In just the last five months, from the 1st of July to the 3rd of December 2017, Sony sold more than 7 million Playstation 4 consoles. Let that sink in for a minute. If you think that doesn’t sound like such a lot, take into account that the Nintendo Switch sold only 4.7 million units in its first four months. Nintendo has estimated that it will sell in the region of 14 million Switch consoles over the first 12 months, while Sony fully expects to be able to move an enormous 18 million Playstation 4 consoles in the same amount of time.
Players are Voting with their Wallets
One of the main reasons for the stunning success of the Playstation 4 is that it was the less expensive gaming console when it got launched back in 2013. It was retailing at as much as US$100 less than the Microsoft Xbox One.
