In the entirety of financial year 2018-19 (which ended March 31st, 2019), the PS4 sold a total of 17.8 million units worldwide, exceeding Sony’s projections of 17.5 million sales throughout the financial year. Of these, 2.6 million units were sold in Q4 of the financial year (January – March of 2019), which is up from the 2.5 million units that were sold in Q4 of the previous year (though total sales across the financial year are down from the previous year). Their current projections for the current financial year stand at 16 million units. 

On the software front, the financial year saw the sale of 257.6 million software units for the PS4, of which 54.7 million units were sold in the final quarter. 37 per cent of all software sales were digital (45 per cent during the fourth quarter).
