The PS4 Has Now Passed 91.6 Million Units Sold

The Japanese electronics giant touted that it has flogged some 5.6 million PS4 consoles across the so-called holiday season; 18 million consoles were sold over the past 12 months, and a grand total of 91.6 million units have been shifted since the PS4 debuted in late 2013.

Sony didn't waste any time touting impressive PS4 sales numbers from the holidays. At the end of October a year ago, that figure stood at 86.1 million.

Today, during Sony's press conference at CES in Las Vegas, Nevada, CEO Kenichiro Yoshida showcased a new trailer for the PS4 showing off some of the most relevant available and upcoming games for the console. Spider-Man was undoubtedly the strongest exclusive of the year, having now reached over 9 million units in sales to consumers, counting both physical, and digital.

In addition, the company announced that its PlayStation Online service has more than 90-million active users (this includes individuals who play on the company's previous PlayStation 3 console).

Not all of them are paid, Plus subscribers, of course, but it goes to show how connected many PS4 owners are.

Kodera continued, "I would like to express my deepest gratitude to our passionate community around the globe, and our partners, for helping us achieve these milestones. As we look towards the next PS4 milestone, SIE will continue to evolve, and we will further expand the platform to deliver the best interactive experiences to the world".

Now the real question is when the company will hit 100 million. Then it'll continue to push forward in the later part of the year with Ghost of Tsushima, The Last of Us Part II and Death Stranding, if they arrive this year.
