PS4 has now shipped over 76 million units worldwide

Sony's PlayStation 4 has nearly outsold the PlayStation 3

Sony's New CEO Talks PlayStation Plus, PSN, Recurring Revenues, and PS4 Production Costs Reduction

Sony revealed its Q3 earnings of 2017 with one major reveal - the PlayStation 4 almost outselling its predecessor the PlayStation 3.

Sony still forecasts total PS4 shipment numbers of 19 million for the 2017 financial year ending March 31, 2018. If we add the 9 million more it added during the previous quarter, then the cumulative total stands at 76.5 million, as of December 31 (even higher now that we are into February). In released alongside Microsoft's Xbox One, a console that has struggled to maintain stable growth in the market. With games like Shadow of the Colossus, God of War, Yakuza 6, Ni No Kuni 2, and Far Cry 5 on the way, it can easily surpass the PlayStation 3's lifetime sales of ~ 83 million and reaching 90 million total units sold by the end of 2018 is nearly a given.

The PlayStation 2 remains Sony's best-selling console, with over 150 million units sold.

Sony announced during its latest financial results overnight that PS4 has shipped 76.5 million units worldwide (via DualShockers).

Overall revenue for Sony was up 11 percent, to $23.6 billion, compared to the same quarter previous year. Most notably, a 279.8% in operating income over last year's 2016 Q3 report. Assuming performance in the following quarters follows the same historical trend, cumulative PS4 sales for this current quarter should top 80 million units, and reach 88-90 million units by the middle of the year. Sony CFO Kenichiro Yoshida will take his place. That number, along with the 41% increase on PlayStation Network sales year-on-year, have helped the company exceed 300 billion yen ($2.73 billion) for the first time in the business' history.
