PlayStation 4 Now Ahead of PS3, Reaching 80 Million Consoles Shipped

The PS4 overtakes the PS3

By Grayshadow, Posted 31 Jul 2018

The PlayStation 4 took the head start this generation and ran away with the competition. Thanks to strong titles such as Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, God of War 4, and Ratchet and Clank the system has become the most popular gaming console of this generation. With Sony confirmed that the PS4 has beaten the PS3 in consoles shipped, reaching 80 million systems.


The news comes from Sony's recent financial results which stated that 83 million PS4 consoles were shipped but sales were not provided. At the end of 2017, 70 million PS4 were sold.

The PS4 launches in 2013 to critical acclaim thanks to the Xbox One's fumble and the Wii U's poor marketing. Since then the PS4 has delivered strong first-party and third-party exclusives to help encouraged gamers to make the switch. With Nintendo now playing catch up with Nintendo reporting that the Nintendo Switch is nearing 20 million in sales.
