Like hotcakes.

The PlayStation 4 continues to sell very well. As we noted earlier, the PlayStation 4 is the top-selling console this generation, outpacing the Xbox One to such an extent that Microsoft no longer prefers to hand out specific Xbox One sales figures. Sony’s own financial statement for Q1 2016 indicates that the PlayStation 4 sales remain, although overall Sony sales declined by 10 percent, relative to the last quarter.

3.5 million units of the PlayStation 4 shipped in Q1 2016. This pace of sales is a bit slower than the last quarter, which saw Sony shipping a staggering 8. million units of their console. Sony expects to shift 60 million units of the PlayStation 4 by 2017.

Despite slower growth, the PlayStation 4 continues to be a major revenue center for Sony, even as its mobile division saw a significant 33 percent reduction in revenue. The worldwide smartphone market has been slowing down of late, but Sony’s Xperia Z line is particularly played out, with the the Z5 Premium’s 4K display failing to be a differentiator in a market brimming with gimmicks, from modular parts to curved displays.

    Outpacing the Xbox One to such an extent that unlike when the 360 was on top, Microsoft no longer prefers to hand out specific Xbox One sales figures. Well if Xbox Is “the best place to play”, as you advertise, then how come you won’t tell us how many people bought one?

      60 million Xbox Live users against 40 of the PS4 says a lot friend, also those numbers are shipped units not sold units, ignorant sony fanboy, do you get off by defending Sony? in a couple years after the VR flops Sony will be just as Nintendo.

    • Mr Xrat

      60 million total users against 40 million subscribers. Doesn’t really compare, does it?

    • Nintengods

      No games versus no games

      No competition.

      Except for Nintendo who have games.

    • Nintengods

      Nope. Nintendo’s going to destroy M$ and $ony

    • Nintengods

      Still nowhere near Wii last generation.

      If PS4 is where the players are, why are there no games?

  • Tim Kennsington

    • Doggystyle

      LOL. Good job mate. How many 360’s did you buy?

      save Sony campaign bro.

    • Mr Xrat

      Xgimps are reaching peak madness. Another flop holiday will have you medicated and locked up for your own safety.

    • Nintengods

      Another desperate Ocelot post trying to hide the streaming tears from his eyes as $ony struggles to stay afloat for another month while Samsung rolls in for the kill

      This isn’t even the quarter with the damage done by the Ghostbusters remake either.

      Nintendo blows out Sony next quarter and the tears resume. That is if you have any left now that No Man’s Spore is a blunder of the century

  • Nintengods

    Dead company propped up by rehashed 360 playing COD. Just as cancerous as the xbone.

    Don’t worry, the losses from that Ghostbusters remake are coming soon and they will be back into the red where they should be.

  • Mr Xrat

    Hello? Kirk DA-MORON Gordon? Where are you?

    • Nintengods

      Dead company propped up by their mediocre games console. Why are you celebrating $ony escaping the brink of bankruptcy again?

      But then I don’t think there will be any tears left after No Man’s Spore comes out. Must have been triggering watching everyone laugh at the leaked “Gameplay”. I had a good laugh too.

    • Xymon Oscar Villapando

      I see you preferred the banishment of the name Sky from the vocabulary of every game except SkyTV.

      And you are just watchbait.No doubt about it.
