And while on the subject of software, 617.8 million copies of PlayStation 4 games have been sold at retailers across the world and through digital downloads on the PlayStation Store.

The PlayStation VR headset has also reached another milestone with 2 million sold through to consumers.

This isn't lost on Sony, which is Nintendo's only genuine rival in its home region.

Sony has announced new sales records for its gaming console of PS4 and PSVR, propelled by the approach of the holiday season and the famous Black Friday.

Kazuhiko Takeda, Head of Corporate Planning for the electronics giant, made it clear that the Switch is a sure-fire competitor within the video game business, and not something Sony can afford to ignore.

Adding to the PS4's success is PS VR, which, as of December 3, 2017, has sold through more than 2 million units to consumers. An impressive number, this latest statistic puts the console within ten million units of it's predecessor, the PS3.

Like the Wii before it, the Switch's popularity caught many off-guard, and the console has frequently been sold out in many locations.

150 titles have been released for PS VR, achieving more than 12.2 million copies sold at retail stores globally and through digital downloads on PlayStation Store as of December 3, 2017.

On the flip side, Sony's consoles tend to sell extremely well for long periods of time, while even Nintendo's most-popular console eventually fizzled in sales around year four after the explosive early popularity that propelled it to crossing the 100-million-sold mark turned out to be a passing fad.
