PS4 Sales Top 70 Million, Sony Says 130 PSVR Titles in Development

As for PlayStation VR, the virtual reality headset has sold more than two million units. "But we can't ignore the Nintendo Switch, which has also captured consumers' attention".

Video game stories from other sites on the web. More than 12.2m PSVR games have been sold. The PS4 has managed to gain a huge sales lead over it's competitors, and continues to sell well four years after launch. Having stalled in the no man's land of 1 million units sold, Black Friday's price slashing bonanza means there have now been 2 million headset sales, which is great news for the platform to finally be able to show some tangible forward momentum. Yet one industry analyst estimates the Switch, which has been the top-selling console in the US for all but two of the months it's been on sale, has sold at a clip 20 percent better than the Wii had to this point in its lifecycle.

The console surpassed 60 million sales in June, and after strong Q2 sales many expected the system to hit the 70 million mark sooner rather than later. At just over 100 million units, the Wii is Nintendo's best-selling console of all time. On the gaming side, the firm does not have to blush since it accounts for a total of 617.8 million sales at the same date, accounting for both physical and digital sales.

The PlayStation 4 continues to dominate its rival, Microsoft's Xbox One console.
