Sony last confirmed that PSVR had sold a million units around halfway through the year, so it hasn't taken long for the headset to double its install base.

"At our gaming business, sales of the PlayStation 4 are strong heading into the holidays", said Takeda-san.

The PlayStation 4 has hit another major sales milestone, with Sony confirming its flagship console has sold through more than 70.6 million units worldwide as of December 3.

Following the success of the PS4, customers have also been flocking to the PS VR. It'll be adding God of War, Detroit: Become Human and Marvel's Spider-Man to its store soon. Furthermore, Sony said there are more than 130 PSVR games in development due out by the end of 2018.

In a press release, Sony has announced that worldwide sales of the PS4 have cumulatively reached over 70.6 million units, as of December 3rd, 2017 (sales in this case being sell-through of systems to consumers, not "shipped" to retailers).

House also added that "I can not thank our fans and partners enough", stating that "their support, since the launch of very first PlayStation in 1994, has helped to make PlayStation one of the biggest console gaming network in the world". Recently technology market analyst firm Canalys reported more than 490,000 PlayStation VR's were sold in Q3 2017. Their support, since the launch of very first PlayStation in 1994, has helped to make PlayStation one of the biggest console gaming networks in the world. That's pretty impressive considering it was only released in March. "Our business model involves selling both the game console and the software for it, so we're working to get more customers paying continuously for content, for example through paid subscription services".
