During this year's Consumer Electronics Show Sony executives have announced that PlayStation 4 is approaching 100 million lifetime sales. Spider-Man has been shifting units nicely too.

91.6 million PS4s have been sold worldwide, which according to GI.biz means that ten million units have been sold since the last update in July — and 18 million in 2018. That's down 2.2 million from 2017 but given that the PlayStation 4 is now five years old, that's not surprising.

There were some other impressive statistics too:

  • 876 million PlayStation 4 games sold globally to date
  • 5.6 million PS4s were sold between November 19th and December 31st 2018 alone
  • Spider-Man has sold more than nine million copies as of the end of November
  • 90 million active PSN users as of the end of November
Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO John Kodera was naturally proud of these achievements, expressing gratitude to the community and hopes for the year to come:

"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."
