Over 110 million PS4s in the world!
When announcing its latest financial results, Sony obviously mentioned its PlayStation division. Obviously, the gaming branch of Sony is doing wonderfully, since the PS4 has now exceeded 110 million sales (consoles delivered) worldwide. Remember that the PS4 was launched at the very end of 2013.

In the past fiscal year, Sony has delivered more than 13.6 million PS4 consoles, slightly better than last year (13.5 million). An impressive performance for the Sony PS4, which has literally exterminated the competition, and even if on the side of Microsoft, we no longer communicate the number of consoles sold, it is estimated that about 47 million the number of Xbox One sold worldwide . An Xbox One also launched in late 2013, just a few days before the PS4.
Regarding Nintendo, even if the group is not in direct competition with Sony and Microsoft, it should be noted that the Nintendo Switch has already sold more than 55 million copies worldwide. A very impressive score for a console launched in March 2017.
PS5 still scheduled for late 2020
If the PS4 still has some reservations in its bag, including the much anticipated The Last of Us Part 2 and Ghost of Tsushima, Sony is (calmly) preparing for the arrival of the " next gen". Indeed, the PS5 should be presented in the coming days, and, coronavirus or not, the new console stamped Sony is still expected by the end of the year.
This is indeed what confirms the Japanese giant with the announcement of its financial results. A PS5 which we only know for now the controller, the DualSense, and which will come, as in 2013, to rub against the new Xbox, since the two consoles are expected for the end of this year 2020, probably in the during the month of November.
