Sony announced its second quarter financial results in two areas of interest. While mobile sales fell to historic low, consoles climbed to the top.
The Japanese company sold 1.6 million Xperia in June-September period, last year was 1.6 million. The company also continues to reduce forecasts. In 2017, it sold 13.5 million mobile phones. Last year it was only 6.5 million. And it will be worse. In June, Sony predicted the sale of 4 million Xperia, but in the latest press release, the year-round estimate fell to 3.5 million units.
Rising PS4 Tables
Sales also drop to the PlayStation 4, which is not surprising six years after the launch. That's why Sony is already interested in PS5 tracks. In 2017, PS4 sold 19 million, last year was 17.8 million, and according to current estimates it will be 13.5 million this year. Even after the correction, Sony still reached 15 million in June.
Significantly, the Japanese sold another 2.8 million units in the past quarter, making PS4 the best-selling PlayStation to date. Thus, the first generation 300,000 units of fresh embarrassment. The PS1 was sold for 12 years. But at the top of the historical tables is the remarkable PS2, which has 155 million pieces sold by Sony for 13 years. This is what PS4 and possibly another console are not approaching.
Foreign media (and the Czech parrot after them) say that PlayStation 2 is the second best-selling console in history. This is not entirely true. It ranks second among Sony consoles and even among desktop consoles. But considering that handhelds are the game console (which we normally do), PS4 ranks fourth.
Nintendo DS (154 million) is second and Game Boy (119 million) is third. Wii (102 million) took fourth place on PS4 before joining PS4. Nintendo later announced that it sold another 3.2 million Switches yesterday and ranked 15th in the history with a total of 41.7 million. According to VGChartz, there is an Xbox One that sold 44.5 million units. However, the exact numbers cannot be verified because Microsoft no longer publishes.
