According to a recent announcement from Sony, they have officially sold more than 100 million PlayStation 4 worldwide as of June 30th, 2019. This announcement was made during Sony's Q1 Financial Result of the 2019 fiscal year.

In Q1 2019, Sony has sold 3.2 million PS4 consoles, which was up from the 2.6 million units sold of Q4 2018. While this number is still under Sony's expectation, it's easy to understand the reason why - as more and more details about the next-gen PS5 was announced during this time frame. Many gamers don't want to buy a console that's reaching the end of its life cycle; they choose to wait for the release of the new PS5 instead.

The PS4 is now the most successful console of Sony

Anyway, the figure of 3.2 million units sold has helped Sony reaching the total PS4 sales of 100 million units - and according to Senior Analyst Daniel Ahmad at Niko Partners, the PS4 is currently the "fastest home console to reach 100 million units sold", after five years and seven months since the official launch date of November 15, 2013. The previous records belong to the PlayStation 2 - which was considered as the most successful console from Sony - as it took five years and nine months to reach 100 million units sold.

Meanwhile, Sony's PlayStation 4 games and software also bring $42.9 million to the company, with the digital download ratio of 53%. This number means that more and more people prefer buying digital games than physical discs.

We still have to wait one more year until the release of PS5

At the moment, there are 36.2 million PlayStation Plus Subscribers, which still proved to be a healthy online community for PS4's games.

Also at the financial reports, Sony is predicting that they can sell 15 million PS4 more until the end of this fiscal year. Especially when they are going to release a new AAA exclusive title - Death Stranding - this October. With many stars in this game, along with acclaimed director Hideo Kojima at its helm, this game was one of Sony's last cards to boost PS4's sales before the PS5 got released.
