Sony Boasts Breaking 100 Million Total PS4, PS3 and PS Vita Sales in New Corporate Ad

on July 9, 2014 4:10 PM

Not all the trailers released by Sony Computer Entertainment are targeted to gamers, and at times the company releases videos dedicated to their business partners as well. The Japanese branch of the house of PlayStation just launched a nice little trailer aimed to other companies in order to persuade them to create new officially licensed PlayStation products.

Quite interestingly, the trailer mentions that the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita combined have broken a total of 100 million units sold.

We know from official Sony sources that PS3 has shipped to retailers 80 million units by November 3rd 2013, while PS4 has sold to customers seven million units by April 17th. PlayStation Vita lifetime sales are, unfortunately, pretty much a mystery, but it’s rumored to have sold about 8.5 million units to date according to VGChartz (this number should be taken with an enormous grain of salt).

Those numbers combined are still quite far from 100 million, meaning that the three consoles must have sold a quite considerable amount of units in the past few months.

It’ll definitely be interesting to see when Sony will give us updated numbers for the PS4, especially considering that it’s been almost four months since the last official press release, and they skipped that kind of boasting at E3.

In the meanwhile, if you want to see how Sony communicates with its potential business partners, you can check out the video below.
