Great results. What more interesting is that Playstation in 2018 calendar year generates almost the same amount of revenue as Microsoft's gaming division and Nintendo COMBINED. PSN alone made more than whole Nintendo. That's just insane.

Yep!

Total network services revenue in 2018 was 1373 billion yen, which is around $12.5 billion.

Once again, revenue generated from Sony's Network services (PSN) in 2018 is higher than Nintendo's total revenue for 2018!

But then you go and see (haven't looked today) Nintendo is worth more than whole Sony on stock market... for some reason it seems like the rest of Sony is making loses (it isn't) and all the assets are just liabilities.

With the aggravation of those double standards that point out Nintendo being worth more, but then taking less risk because they are smaller and poorer.

You have already answered, Nintendo is much smaller and poorer.

Where are all the sexy charts and images and numbers that are usually in a forecast/report thread????!!!



Impressive numbers. Playstation is the biggest gaming brand in the world.

So if 94'2M shipped, then 2'6M on shelves even with the most conservative Sony in Q3 in years, on par for what i expected...



That's just crazy. But we are used to this with PlayStation.



Playing right now : Shadow Of WarDeath Stranding, Gears 5 and Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order.

PSX : 104,25 M

PS2 : 157,68 M

PS3 : 86,90 M

PS4 : 92 M a month ago...

 Total : 440,83 M, a month ago.

 This is called Playstation Empire.

Hm .. I find it a little bit odd that less than half of PS4 owners have PS Plus? Is there something I'm reading wrong?

Anyways, great numbers! Can't wait to see what it can do in 2019 and 2020.

Sales and PS4 owner numbers are probably a fair bit different, especially this late in the console's lifecycle. They'll be a bunch of multi-console owners, a bunch of broken consoles and of course a bunch of used consoles sitting in shops waiting to be purchased by a new owner. So there will always be more consoles sold than there are actual console owners except for the very beginning of a console's life.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

To put things more in perspective, not counting the last consoles from Nintendo and Sony (Switch and PS4):

PS1+PS2+PS3 (348M) > NES+SNES+N64+GC+Wii+WiiU (281M).

And when PS4 and Switch finish to sell, the difference will be up to around 40-50M more in favor to Sony.

Home consoles territory has always been Playstation domination, and have never been any reason to think otherwise.



Number of PS4s sold:

2015: 17.4 millions

2018: 18.0 millions

 

Number of PS4s shipped :

2015: 17.8 millions

2018: 17.7 millions

 

Number of Nintendo Switch shipped in 2018: 17.41 millions

Number of Nintendo Switch sold in 2018: less than 17.41 millions
