20% Of All PS4 Systems Being Sold Are PS4 Pros, Says Sony
A reasonably good result, all things considered.
While the PS4 Pro has not exactly gone ahead and set the world on fire, it looks like the upgraded system is doing reasonably well for itself. According to a statement Sony made to Polygon, since the PS4 Pro launched, 20% of all PS4 systems sold – that is, 1 in every 5 PS4 sold – have been PS4 Pros.
Given the fact that the PS4 Pro is more expensive than the standard PS4 by at least $100, the fact that it has received little to no marketing support, the fact that it has had no bundled, the fact that the PS4 Slim has been so aggressively pushed by Sony and retailers, the fact that PS4 Pro enhanced games with meaningful updates are few and far in between, and the fact that 4K and HDR TVs haven’t exactly taken off yet, that’s actually a really good result- and Sony is certainly happy with it, with Sony global sales chief Jim Ryan confirming the system is doing better than they expected.
So, it looks like the PS4 Pro is silently chugging along in the background. Hopefully, this means more meaningful support for it going forward.
