VGChartz has sales of the PS4 at 105.96 million units through December 28. When you add in the last 3 days of 2019 we would have sales of 106 million units.

Well done on the tracking Will :)

103m+ active monthly useres, 38.8m+ PS4 plus users, 1,15 Billion games sold, and 106m consoles sold through to consumers.

I'm surprised PSVR sold this well. 4-5% of all PS4 sales is a pretty good attach rate all things considering.


thismeintiel (on 06 January 2020)

So, probably 108M shipped for PS4 and 6M-7M shipped for PS VR. Nice.

Is this the highest selling console with the highest sale price ever? Just imagine where it could be if sony dropped it to 200-250 2 years ago.

I am curious to know what the VR Target sales weren't meant to be. 5m sounds like a lot but was that what Sony planned on selling or is that under sold with its time on the market?


DialgaMarine (on 06 January 2020)

I guess all things considered with the pricing, the amount of competition, and the fact that the tech is still infantile, I imagine this may have not been their mark, but they're satisfied nonetheless. Should get a nice boost with Iron Man VR.

compaired to the competition's VR headset sales, 5m+ isnt so bad.

@JRPGfan, that's not exactly how it works. For example, If Sony is losing millions on the device than I don't think the competition is going to care how many units they sell. That's why its important companies reach there sales goals. However if PSVR is making a fortune than I am sure the competition would want to jump in for the slice of the pie.

They have said on the first 2 years on almost all PSVR sales announcement that they were selling more than projected.

I like your reply Azz where you give a double negative, it either is selling low and losing money or other companies would have access to the profit of PSVR and would have more competitors (PSVR is the best selling VR, and there are big competitors against it).

The numbers keep growing. And again we got an update of PSVR - 5M sold, but doubters will say it is doing bad and Sony is hiding the numbers.


xMetroid (on 07 January 2020)

Still 5 millions is niche and isn't that viable to make AAA just in VR

Call what you want, it is still receiving a lot of new SW and PSVR isn't the only VR in the market.
