Sony has shipped 67.5M PS4 systems, expects 79M sold by April 2018

Sony revealed today that they have shipped 67.5 million PS4 consoles. They say that while they expected PS4 sales to drop this fiscal year, from 20M the previous year to 18M, that they now expect to sell 19M by the end of their fiscal year.

The company expects to ship a total of 79 million PS4 consoles by the end of March 2018. That’s a hugely impressive number, considering the PS3 took 7+ years to sell 80 million systems.

At the end of the generation, it is easy to imagine Sony will sell over 100M PS4 systems. They may never catch up to the PS2, which sold over 155M units but it should easily pass the 100M that the original PlayStation console sold.
