The PlayStation 5 might be on the horizon, but the PS4 continues its impressive run. As of September 30, Sony has shipped 102.8 million PlayStation 4 consoles, surpassing even the Nintendo Wii.

Sony announced the news in its most recent financial statements, revealing that 2.8 PlayStation 4s were moved in the last quarter. Twitter user ZhugeEX has been tracking the data, so you can see how the global console shipment stack up.

Remember these are sell-in numbers and not the sell-through ones. The PS4’s lifetime sales were 91.6 million as of December 31, 2018.

The PS4 is the blue line, the Wii is the red one, and the PS2 is the black one. The graph shows console shipments for the first 72 weeks, and the Switch, represented by a light purple line, looks like it’s on a similar trajectory to the PlayStation 4.

As previously reported, the PlayStation 4 has reached the magic one million mark faster than the Wii and the PS2. However, it still has a ways to go to reach the PS2’s lifetime numbers.


  • When you look at Sonys comeback at the end of the last generation and their performance in this one, it’s clear that the PS5 is gonna hit the market running.

  • Interesting, I always thought the 360 outsold the PS3 because of the price point but looking back at a comparison now the PS3 was a far better value proposition. Inbuilt wifi, higher hdmi support, 1gb ethernet, no online sub, blu-ray. When you add wifi and the subscription to the 360 the PS3 was only $30 bucks more for the top tier model, not to mention ongoing cost.

    No wonder it beat the 360.
