Sony’s PlayStation 4 now the second best-selling console ever
The PlayStation 4 sells around 102.8 million units. The top-selling console, the PlayStation 2, is at over 150 million units sold.

MANILA, Philippines – Sony’s Playstation 4 (PS4) is now the second best-selling console ever.

The new milestone for the gaming console was revealed as Sony shared its Q2 financial results. (Sony first-half net profit drops 14.9%, full-year net profit forecast up)

The company reported that the PS4 shipped out 2.8 million units, bringing its total up to 102.8 million.

The top selling console is the PS4’s older brother, the Playstation 2 (PS2), which tops the list at over 150 million units. 


While already close to the end of its cycle, the PS4 still stands to add some sales to its count, even as its successor’s launch has been teased.

The PS5 will launch Holiday 2020, yet, at its 7th year, the PS4 is still expecting exclusives such as The Last of Us 2 and Ghost of Tsushima, which may help push more sales a few months down the line.
