PlayStation VR Dominates as Sony Reveals More Than 2 Million Sold Worldwide

The console surpassed 60 million sales in June, and after strong Q2 sales many expected the system to hit the 70 million mark sooner rather than later.

More than 70.6 million PlayStation 4 consoles have been sold through to customers worldwide as of December 3rd, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced this morning.

The latest Media Create results, combined with historical data, confirm that the Nintendo Switch and PS4 both passed a sales milestone in Japan. Having stalled in the no man's land of 1 million units sold, Black Friday's price slashing bonanza means there have now been 2 million headset sales, which is great news for the platform to finally be able to show some tangible forward momentum. At just over 100 million units, the Wii is Nintendo's best-selling console of all time.

Apple planning LCD iPhone with metal case for 2018
The LCD iPhone, in contrast, will sell at a lower price point ($650-$750) and have a lower pixel density (320-330ppi). When anything is confirmed in detail, we will announce it, or (otherwise an announcement will be made) in a month .

"We are delighted that so many people are enjoying the unique entertainment proposition of PlayStation 4 and that an emerging technology like PlayStation VR continues to gain traction", said Andrew House, Chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment in a statement. More than 12.2 million games have been sold for PS VR. "I can not thank our fans and partners enough". After struggling during the PS3 years, Sony came into the current generation swinging.

Going into 2018, Sony will continue to build on it's 2017 momentum with a slew of exclusive titles.

We can expect to see these numbers continue rising next year as we see the release of several big titles in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, Monster Hunter: World, Yakuza Kiwami 2, God of War, and Shadow of the Colossus.
