PlayStation 4 is the little engine that could, and at the same time is the engine that doesn’t ever look like stopping, having now shipped 76.5m consoles.
The undisputed champion of this console generation managed to shift another 9m during Q4 2017, making it another big Christmas for the PlayStation brand, although 9m is down fractionally on last year.
That being said, PlayStation’s division profits were up 100bn yen, up to 718bn yen, on last year thanks primarily to an increase in software sales, of which Sony take a portion.
Of course, PlayStation 4 has a way to go to reach the lofty heights its big brother PlayStation 2 did, which moved 155m consoles as of the last check, which was March 2012.
