Sony’s most recent incarnation of the Playstation has been a massive hit for the company. In its latest earnings report, the company said it shipped 3.2 million PlayStation 4 units between the start of April and the end of June 2019, making for total lifetime shipments since its 2013 launch to 100 million. This makes it Sony’s third console, after the PlayStation and the PlayStation 2, to join that club. Not just that, the PS4 reached 100 million shipments faster than any other console.

It hit that milestone in five years and seven months, faster than the PS2’s five years and nine months. The Nintendo Wii, the only other console to break 100 million in shipments, took around six years and eight months to do so. According to Niko analyst Daniel Ahmed, PS4 shipments are expected to hit $111.8 Million by March 31st 2020.
