The PlayStation 4 Is Over 30 Million Sales In Just One Country

While there have been 100+ million shipped PlayStation 4s around the world in about five and a half years, one country nearly takes up one-third of it all.

The PlayStation 4 – if it gets properly supported in the next three years – can beat the PlayStation 2’a record of 155 million lifetime unit sales, as it’s still a current-gen console for at least one more year (which is why the generation and Sony are both silent nowadays – major developers and publishers are shifting their focus on the next generation). Still, we can clearly say that one country really likes the PlayStation 4, regardless of its version (the base version, or the two that are currently available in the stores: the PlayStation 4 Slim and the PlayStation 4 Pro).

Daniel Ahmad, the senior analyst at Niko Partners, wrote the following the other day on Twitter: „The PlayStation 4 sell-through in the United States has now surpassed 30 million, with the market accounting for approximately 30% of total PS4 sales. Other top markets include Japan (8.3 million), Germany (7.2 million), and the United Kingdom (6.8 million).” In a later tweet, he added that France is just under 6 million units, so their sales performance is also reasonable.

Sony can still hope in getting near to what the PS2 showed in the past, as they still have three (or more like two…?) exclusives that could boost the PlayStation 4’s sales. They are The Last of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, and the game that we believe might head to the PC at a later date, namely Hideo Kojima’s Ghost of Tsushima. Sony should consider a price cut, too – that could highly increase the sales in the sunset days of the PS4.
