Sony Interactive Entertainment announced today that the PlayStation 4 has sold through 91.6 million consoles worldwide as of December 31, 2018. That number means Sony has sold 18 million systems since the beginning of the year, 10 million units since the last update in July, and a total of 5.6 million units this holiday season.
One driver for PlayStation 4 sales this holiday season was Marvel's Spider-Man from Insomniac Games. The title sold more than 9 million copies worldwide as of November 25, 2018, meaning there's still another month of sales Sony isn't reporting. Spider-Man was bundled with the PlayStation 4 during Black Friday sales, so there's likely more copies of Spider-Man out there.
All told, more than 50.7 million PlayStation 4 games were sold during the holiday 2018 season.
"I would like to express my deepest gratitude to our passionate community around the globe, and our partners, for helping us achieve these milestones. This year, we will bring more enhanced experiences to our fans along with a highly anticipated lineup of games that are only possible on PS4. As we look toward the next PS4 milestone, SIE will continue to evolve, and we will further expand the platform to deliver the best interactive entertainment experiences to the world," said John Kodera, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment.
