PS4 Sales Surpass 91.6 Million Globally; Insomniac’s Spider-Man Sells Through More Than 9 Million Copies Worldwide
Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that PS4 sales have surpassed 91.6 million as of December 31, 2018.
We already covered the PS4 sales numbers last month, but Sony has now officially confirmed that the PS4 has surpassed 90 million sales globally. In its press release, Sony mentions that the sales numbers refer to actual units that have been sold through to consumers. Within the 91.6 million sales number, more than 5.6 million units were sold through to consumers during the 2018 holiday season.
Another interesting tidbit is that Insomniac’s Spider-Man, which was released back in September of last year, has sold through more than 9 million copies globally as of November 25, 2018.
“Thanks to the continued support from our fans during the holiday season, we are pleased to announce that PS4 has reached 91.6 million units globally. We are also happy to announce that the monthly active users of PlayStation Network continues to show strong growth, and has surpassed 90 million as of end of November 2018,” said John Kodera, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment. “I would like to express my deepest gratitude to our passionate community around the globe, and our partners, for helping us achieve these milestones. This year, we will bring more enhanced experiences to our fans along with a highly anticipated lineup of games that are only possible on PS4. As we look toward the next PS4 milestone, SIE will continue to evolve, and we will further expand the platform to deliver the best interactive entertainment experiences to the world.”
Sony released its PlayStation 4 back in November of 2013 in both the US and EU. The console was released in Japan in February 2014.
