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.

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.
