PS4 worldwide sales top 70.6 million, PlayStation VR tops two million

Last year Sony augmented its hardware lineup with the PS4 Slim, PSVR, and PS4 Pro, the latter of which allows for 4K gaming.

"At our gaming business, sales of the PlayStation 4 are strong heading into the holidays", said Takeda-san.

Sony says that over 617.8 million PlayStation 4 games have been sold digitally and at retail, which puts the attach rate at a minimum of 8.7%.

Kazuhiko Takeda, Head of Corporate Planning for the electronics giant, made it clear that the Switch is a sure-fire competitor within the video game business, and not something Sony can afford to ignore.

As well as this, companies have created 150 titles for the virtual reality entertainment system. More than 12.2 million games have been sold for PS VR.

Sony Interactive Entertainment chairman Andrew House expressed in the release that "we are delighted that so many people are enjoying the unique entertainment proposition of PlayStation 4 and that an emerging technology like PlayStation VR continues to gain traction".

According to statistics from VGChartz, Microsoft has sold more than 30 million Xbox One units as of October 2017. It'll be adding God of War, Detroit: Become Human and Marvel's Spider-Man to its store soon.

It seems to be positive news for PSVR, especially as it's still unconfirmed if the headset's current rivals, the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive has surpassed even one million units sold having been on the market for roughly six months longer.

"I can not thank our fans and partners enough", Andrew House said, Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO. On the PlayStation VR front, PlayStation says that over 130 games are now in development and set to be released by 2018.

Many feared that Nintendo was beginning to lose its way, but the Switch has redeemed the company's fate. That's pretty impressive considering it was only released in March.
