Other stats include 617.8 million copies of PS4 games sold via digital and retail outlets and the PlayStation VR topping 2 million units sold through along with 12.2 million copies of software.

The latest Media Create results, combined with historical data, confirm that the Nintendo Switch and PS4 both passed a sales milestone in Japan.

The PS4 looks on course to beat the lifetime sales of the PS3 (83.8m) at some point in 2018, but it has some way to go before it beats the lifetime sales of the PSX (102.49m) and the PS2, which is the best-selling console of all time with an incredible 155m sold.

Outgoing Chairman of SIE, Andrew House said, "We are delighted that so many people are enjoying the unique entertainment proposition of PlayStation 4 and that an emerging technology like PlayStation VR continues to gain traction".

As for PlayStation VR, the virtual reality headset has sold more than two million units. The Black Friday sales at the end of November will surely have helped to push the console over the line, but that's hugely impressive, doing in four years what the PlayStation 3 to six years to manage. "I can not thank our fans and partners enough".

More than 617.8 million copies of PS4 games have been sold at retail stores globally and through digital downloads on PlayStation Store as of December 3, 2017. "We will continue to work closely with partners to maintain this momentum and remain steadfast in making PS4 the best place to play". On the PlayStation VR front, PlayStation says that over 130 games are now in development and set to be released by 2018.
