The PS4 just passed a significant milestone. Sony announced today that the company has shipped 100 million PS4 consoles worldwide as of June 30, 2019.
Industry analyst Daniel Ahmad tweeted that the system is outpacing both the PS2 and the Nintendo Wii. That’s quite an achievement.
Not to be outdone, the Nintendo Switch is on pace sales-wise with the PS4. The Switch is just shy of 37 million units shipped, which is slightly behind where the PS4 was at this point in its lifecycle. The PS4 launched in November 2013 while the Switch launched in March 2017.
