Sony has released its earnings report for Quarter 4 of fiscal year 2017, which ended on March 31, 2018. The platform generated another 2.5 million in sales for the quarter, pushing its total number over 79 million, or about what the PS3 sold during its entire life cycle.
According to a report by Gamespot, “Sales for Sony‘s Game & Network Services division increased 18% to 1,943.8 billion yen for the quarter. The company attributed this in large part to an increase in PS4 software sales, which were up to 52 million units from 50.6 million during the same period last year. That included a major uptick in digital sales, as 43% of games sold were digital, as compared with 37% the year prior. For the full year, 32% of full games were sold digitally.”
With at least another year or two in the current generation, there’s a distinct possibility that the PS4 could eventually dethrone the mighty PS2 in all-time sales.
