"Thanks to the continued support from our fans across the globe, we are honored to announce remarkable sales during the holiday season", said John Kodera, president and CEO of SIE.

Sony's PlayStation VR (PSVR) had a strong 2017 with a number of great releases and a total of two million units sold.

Sony also announced that 55.9m PS4 games were sold during the 2017 holiday season - both physically and digitally. To date, that's 640 million games sold since launch.

December 2017 was a great month for sales, in fact, it was the best month of all time for content sales on the PSN Store.

Sony has announced a new sales milestone for the PlayStation 4 today ahead of their CES 2018 press conference. We do know, however, that the Xbox One X has performed above original sales expectations and sold faster than the PS4 Pro when it was released a year before. This is down from a year ago, when Sony sold 6.2 million PS4s during the holiday season. "We promise our unwavering commitment to bring more wonderful experiences to our fans, including exclusive games and innovative network services, as PS4 continues to flourish as the best place to play".

The PS4 system is now available in 127 countries and regions worldwide.

Considering that the original PS4 came out at the tail end of 2013, that's a phenomenal number in just four years.
