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

Yeah, we are :

(Home Consoles)

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.

PS3 is probably right, but PS1 is 102.5M.

Anyway, great results. PlaysStation is the biggest brand in the home console market, by far.

The PS4 finished top of the world sales for the 5th consecutive year (2014-2015-2016-2017-2018). Long live the king !

Looks like that's a longer reign than Wii had with home consoles though DS did better according to this site (although I didn't see PS2 counted in 2005 since this site doesn't go back further than 7th gen for some reason)

The wii was the first 3-4 years before his sales dropped sharply.

Wow!

What a turnover this is compared to the early PS3 days. I would be good if someone made alligned charts to compare Playstation earnings from 2006 to 2018

I'm trying to find some charts but it's not easy, as I can only find Sony Net Income 2006-2018, the whole group.

 Some info from 3 months ago :

Sony posts $2.1B profit as PlayStation sales keep on growing

""Sony’s   PlayStation business continues to come on leaps and bounds after a 27 percent increase in gaming revenue helped the company record a $2.1 billion profit in Q2.

The PlayStation division is Sony’s top performer and once again that was the case, carding $4.9 billion in sales during the quarter with an operating profit of $800 million for the division, that’s up around 65 percent year-on-year. That caused Sony’s operating profit to jump by 59 percent as revenue rose six percent to $19.6 billion.

In raw sales, Sony has sold over 86 million PS4 consoles to date thanks to shifting 3.9 million during Q2, though that’s down a little on 4.2 million one year previous. However, a strong appetite for games continues. Exclusive title ‘Gold of War’ sold over three million copies in its first three days of sale in April, while ‘Spider-Man’ clocked over 3.3 million sales in its first three days last month.

Meanwhile, Sony’s PlayStation business continues to grow. The company just announced that it’s shipped over 86 million PS4 consoles worldwide; for comparison, the last figure given for the PS3 was 80 million back in 2013, while the original PlayStation managed around 102 million.

Outside of gaming, Sony saw big gains in sales within financial services, its second-biggest revenue generator which jumped 27 percent, and semiconductors, up 11 percent, although losses for its troubled mobile unit widened to reach $265 million for the quarter while mobile revenue declined by 32 percent year-on-year.

Sony is so bullish about the rest of the year that it has raised its full-year operating profit forecast to 870 billion JPY, that’s $7.7 billion and an increase of about 30 percent to the original target. That would represent a record for annual income.

That’s partly down to the strong performance of its PlayStation but also the impact of its $2.3 billion buyout of EMI Music Publishing, as pointed out by Bloomberg. Sony previously held a 39.8 percent share in the venture but the deal — which just got the regulatory green light in Europe — will see the value’s of original stake increase while adding additional revenue from the business. Tellingly, those EMI gains represent 55 percent of the additional revenue Sony is forecasting to hit this financial year.""

Taken from ResetEra, graphs likely made by ZhugeEX. Orange bars are forecasts for the current fiscal year.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

The growth in profits after the release of the ps4 is scary, year after year and an absurd peak in 2018. OMG the graph is impressive.

These charts just make the turnover Playstation 4 made even more impressive.
