Kaz Hirai PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Want to know how successful PlayStation is? Sony has sold over half-a-billion systems since the division started in 1994, which is a figure being commemorated by a new Limited Edition PlayStation 4 Pro set to launch later this month. The exact number accurate as of 22nd July is 525.3 million units, and it accounts for PSone, PS2, PSP, PS3, PS Vita, and PS4.

The PS4 specifically has sold 81.2 million units directly to consumers, which puts it close to its recent shipment report, confirming that there’s been no channel stuffing going on. The most impressive thing about all this is that the current-gen console still hasn’t permanently dropped below $299.99, meaning that there’s a lot of selling power left in the machine yet.
