PS4 hardware sales are down, while software sales are up.
Sony’s fiscal results for the last financial year have been released and the company has confirmed that its worldwide shipments of PlayStation 4 consoles have reached 79 million.
Sony announced its intention to increase worldwide PS4 shipments to 78 million in its forecast last year. Since then, the company has shipped 19 million units, which is a decrease of one million, year-on-year.
For the upcoming fiscal year, Sony forecasts 16 million PS4 hardware sales, predicting a decrease of 3 million units from last year.
The software side is looking much more positive, with an increase in sales of 18% year-on-year, as well as an increase in PlayStation Plus subscribers which contributed to the figure.
As hardware sales begin to wind down, Sony hasn’t made any more comments regarding their next generation of consoles since Shuhei Yoshida said he was unsure if the PlayStation 5 would even be a thing.
Meanwhile, Sony has yet to announce its E3 2018 plans, but you can check in to keep up with the dates and times of the all of the confirmed livestreams and conferences from the event right here.
