Sony has sold 110.4 million PlayStation 4 consoles during its lifetime, and has 41.5 million PS Plus subscribers.

The numbers come from Sony’s full-year financial results, in which it admitted sales of PS4 hardware and sales were down due to the slowing of the consoles lifecycle.

It’s next home console, the PlayStation 5, is on track to launch this holiday 2020, and Sony has said there is no significant delay to game productions from first-party studios or its partners.

Sony’s game division was a significant highlight for the wider business, as its electronics, music and pictures divisions all took a hit due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

A massive 51 percent of net sales from Sony’s games business comes from digital sales of games and add-ons, in contrast to 6 percent of packaged game sales. PS4 hardware sales made up 19 percent of sales for the full year, with PS Plus and PS Now accounting for 17 percent and peripherals 7 percent.

While the PS4 might be winding down, it still has two massive game releases over the next couple of months. The Last of Us Part 2 is due June 19, followed by new IP from Sucker Punch Ghost of Tsushima July 17.
