Worldwide PlayStation 4 Shipments Top 60 Million

Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that worldwide shipments for PlayStation 4 have topped 60 million units.

The news comes from their latest financial results for the last fiscal year, which ended on March 31st. The financial briefing notes that 20 million PlayStation 4 units were shipped in the 2016 fiscal year, running from April 1st of 2016 through March 31st of this year.

A few noticeable factors have aided in the continual growth of the PlayStation 4 hardware adoption rate – namely the upgraded PlayStation 4 Pro SKU (featured above), the PlayStation 4 Slim, and the countless numbers of special editions (although they’re usually Japan-only).

Sony has forecast that it will ship 18 million PlayStation 4 units in this fiscal year, which runs until next March.
