Contrary to common opinion, the PlayStation 4 was once again the world’s best-selling console in 2018 – despite it celebrating its fifth anniversary in November. Sony shipped 8.1 million consoles globally during the three month period ending 31st December, bringing its overall total for the calendar year up to 17.7 million units. For the same period, the Nintendo Switch shipped 17.4 million units.
The PlayStation maker has now shipped 94.2 million PS4 consoles worldwide, with sell-through sitting at 91.6 million units. These results are particularly impressive when you consider the age of the system compared to the much newer Nintendo Switch, and also the fact that its price hasn’t changed in some time. Surely the device will hit $199.99 this year?
