Sony announced lifetime shipment figures for the PlayStation 4 have hit 96.8 million units as of March 31, 2018. The figure was revealed in Sony's earning report for the fourth quarter of the fiscal year 2018.

2.6 million PlayStation 4 consoles were shipped during the quarter. That is up by 0.1 million during the same period a year ago. Sony also shipped 17.8 million PlayStation 4 consoles for the 2018 fiscal year, which is down by 1.2 million units from a year ago.

Not difficult because Nintendo messed things up with Wii U and MS also damaged the image of XOne at the beginning.

Microsoft's bad image 6 years ago doesn't excuse their complete failure to produce compelling first party games to sell systems.

If Sony messed up with ps3 and managed to bounce back by selling 87m consoles with tons of first parties games then MS or Nintendo don't have any excuses with their consoles released this gen.

Congrats Sony. Let's hope Sony's strategy with the PS4 is replicated in the PS5. It's because they didn't bullshit the PS4 that it took off and did so well. They made a machine for gamers and didn't get a big head about it.
