This generation, Sony has created a console that is simply a behemoth. It managed to regain the crown for selling a console that surpassed the 100 million mark. This title was originally held by the PS1 which was then beaten by the PS2.
Sadly Sony’s streak was broken when the PS3 failed to live up to these amazing records.
- PlayStation 1 – 102.5 million
- PlayStation 2 – 155 million
- PlayStation 3 – 87.4 million
With a huge slice of humble pie, Sony went out to regain the title lost and produced a console that was not only developer friendly, but has a consumer-friendly price point.
Not only did they regain the crown, but they also beat the closest competition by a factor of two and if you were to combine the sales of the others, it only comes to 100~ million!
- PlayStation 4 Total Sales: 108,272,070
- Switch Total Sales: 53,733,752
- Xbox One Total Sales: 46,797,224
Congratulations to Sony, let’s hope they can do this again and maintain this momentum for the PlayStation 5.
