The PS5 may be on the horizon, but the PS4 is far from dead. Sony reports that they have now shipped 100 million PS4s between the machines late 2013 launch and June 30 of this year.

Sonys most recent figure for the number of PS4s actually sold to customers is 91.6 million, through the end of 2018.

Daniel Ahmad, an industry analyst and Tweeter of jokes, said that the PS4 has reached the 100 million mark faster than the phenomenally successful PS2 and Wii:

Note that Ahmads chart shows the Switch (the light purple line) to be on the same sales path as the PS4 (light blue), though equally notable is that the Wii was a hotter seller than either machine for a long time before slowing down greatly by year five. The PS4 just hasnt faded as much.

We expect the PS5 to launch next year, but with a PS4 installed base of this size, its a certainty that games will be made and sold for Sonys current console for a long time to come.
