Why we love PS4 and the PS4 Pro

Updated August 05, 2018 07:05:18 PS4’s console is becoming the best-selling gaming console of all time, according to the latest figures from NPD Group.

NPD said that it’s taken over the top spot from the Xbox One and Xbox 360 as the console of choice for PC gamers, while PS4 saw a slight decline in the market as gamers move to the new consoles.

The PS4 sold 7.4 million units worldwide in the third quarter of this year, up 6 per cent year-on-year.

Despite the PS5 not seeing sales of the scale of the PS3, Sony’s latest console will have to be the biggest seller in the industry next year. 

NPD reported that PS4 was the best selling console in the US, the UK and Japan.

Sales of PS4 in the UK were up 15 per cent in the quarter to 6.5 million units, while the US saw a 13 per cent increase in sales of PS5. 

The company said the PSVR headset is the fastest-selling VR device in the world, and is the only one to reach 10 million units sold.

With a reported price of $300, the PS10 headset is currently selling for around $500.
