The Japanese gaming giant revealed that over 5.6 million PS4s were sold over the 2018 holiday season-November 19 through December 31.

"PS4 sold-through 5.6 Million Units this Holiday season".

These are sell-through numbers, meaning sold to consumers.

Sales of the PlayStation 4 console are starting to bear down on the sales of the original Playstation, which sold around 102 million units over its lifetime.

Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO John Kodera also talked up the performance of the PlayStation Network, and said the online service now boasts over 90 million monthly active users.

Marvel's Spider-Man, which is PlayStation's fastest-selling exclusive of all time, continued its success story through the holidays with sales reaching over 9 million units globally as of November 25, 2018. "I would like to express my deepest gratitude to our passionate community around the globe, and our partners, for helping us achieve these milestones".

The Nintendo Switch, meanwhile, has sold 22.86 million units during the two years it's been available, though it's not really seen as a rival to the PS4/Xbox One. More than likely, it'll be late spring, especially with such games as Medievil, Days Gone and Dreams coming our way. Then it'll continue to push forward in the later part of the year with Ghost of Tsushima, The Last of Us Part II and Death Stranding, if they arrive this year.
