Sony Announces It Has Shipped 47.4 Million PS4 Consoles
Highlights
  • Sony's latest financial results show a dip in shipped PS4 consoles
  • The company still expects to ship 60 million consoles by March 31, 2017
  • This would include the PS4 Pro that's launching on November 10

Sony has shipped 47.4 million PS4 consoles by the end of September 30 of this year. The news comes via the company’s latest financial results.

Compared to the same quarter last year, July to September 2015 saw the company ship four million PS4s. This year for the same quarter it is 3.9 million – implying a drop of 100,000 units.

Nonetheless, it’s not gloom and doom just yet. The company is forecasting to ship 60 million consoles by the end of March 31, 2017. Considering that the PlayStation VR (PS VR) headset was met with a solid public reception and the souped up iteration of the PS4, the PS4 Pro is yet to hit the shelves, Sony shouldn’t be too far from the mark.

As for India, there’s no clarity as to when PS VR or the PS4 Pro would hit the shelves. Though if we were to take a guess given Sony India’s actions in the past, we’d peg them for a January release at Rs. 39,990 each. Reason being, both occupy the $399 price - which is what the PS4 was at launch. This translated to a Rs. 39,990 price. It will be interesting to see if foreign exchange fluctuations result in a higher price though.
