Sony has announced over 20 million PlayStation 4 sales since the launch a year and a half ago, up by nearly two million since the 18.5 million January announcement.
The announcement came at the Game Developer Conference in San Francisco, where Sony was showing off the newest version of Project Morpheus, its virtual reality headset that will connect with the PlayStation 4.
PlayStation 4 is Sony’s fastest selling console, and could surpass the overall sales of the PS2 of 105 million. Sony managed to grab the top selling console of February and March as well, beating the Xbox One and Wii U.
Microsoft was on a hot streak in the holiday season, selling more Xbox One units in November, December and January than Sony’s PS4, but it looks like gamers are starting to migrate back over to the PS4.
The drop in price from $499 to $399 to $349 on the Xbox One helped Microsoft’s popularity a lot, considering a lot of Christmas shoppers simply went for the console that was the cheapest.
Even with the huge amount of sales on the PS4, there is still a distinct lack of games on the console. The Order: 1886 might go down as one of the biggest failures in the next-gen battle, and almost everyone seems to be waiting for the fruits of this year’s games.
Sony either needs to invest more in first-party titles, or look towards bringing more indie titles onto the platform. The lack of content is really taking a toll on the hours per user and the amount of games bought.
