In the midst of electronics show CES 2019, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced that the PlayStation 4 has sold 91.6 million units worldwide as of December 31st, 2018. That number includes both the base PS4 and 2016’s PS4 Pro together, and 5.6 million units alone were sold in the 2018 holiday period.

This sales milestone means PlayStation 4 has sold more units in its first five years than the PlayStation 3 sold in its lifetime (83.8 million), and is on its way to outselling the original PlayStation (102.49 million).
