Sony has sold a whopping 100 million PlayStation 4 consoles worldwide.
The Japanese tech giant’s most recent financial report revealed the company’s console has becoming the fast-selling of all time, beating their own PS2 and the Nintendo’s Wii.
The console’s successor, the PS5, certainly has a lot to live up to.
Sony recently admitted they are expecting the PS4 to “remain their engine of engagement” for the next three years.
It’s no surprise that after the next-gen PS5 is launched that they want to make the transition as seamless as possible for their users.
“We will leverage Backwards Compatibility to transition our community to Next Gen faster and more seamlessly than ever before.”
They added that the PS4:
“Will remain the engine of engagement and profitability for the next three years.”
Playstation 5 is expected to drop in the next couple of years, with 2020 previously being suggested.
NPD Group analyst Mat Piscatella told Gaming Bolt:
“2020 is what I have in my forecast. The data suggest there’s no need to do it earlier. But I’ve been surprised before so I’m as interested in this as anyone.”
