At CES 2020, Sony spent some time reviewing the sales performance of the PlayStation 4 over its lifetime. Over the course of that discussion, the company revealed some pretty amazing statistics. So, let’s take a moment to reflect on what Sony achieved with the current generation as we move toward the arrival of PS5 later this year.
What Sony Revealed About PS4 Sales During CES 2020
One of the most impressive figures that Sony revealed during the event was the 106 million PS4 units which it has sold worldwide. Also, the company said that by the end of 2019, it had sold 5 million PS VR units along with 1.15 billion cumulative sales of PS4 software (that figure includes both sales through the PlayStation Store and through third parties).
Further, in terms of its online services, Sony also shared exciting stats. As of December 2019, there were 103 million monthly active users on PlayStation Network along with 38.8 million subscribers to PS Plus.
Jim Ryan, President and CEO of SIE, said, “I am very pleased to see that so many PlayStation fans value the unparalleled entertainment experience on PS4. This has been made possible by the support we have from our partners and fans since launching PlayStation in 1994, and I would like to truly thank everyone. We’ve consistently delivered innovative products like PlayStation VR, which has reached its 5 million unit sales milestone. There is much more entertainment experience to look forward to that the PlayStation ecosystem will provide that we can’t wait to share with our fans.”
It is interesting that Ryan chose to emphasize PS VR at CES 2020, considering VR still remains something of a niche product among console gamers. Does that mean a continued focus on VR from Sony in the future? We certainly are looking forward to what the PlayStation ecosystem has to deliver next! Hopefully, there will soon be more updates on the PlayStation 5. Keep up with our PlayStation news.
