Sony’s dominance of this console generation continues as the PS4 hits 91 million units sold. While Microsoft doesn’t share Xbox sales numbers, analysts claim the PS4 is outselling it 2:1 all while the newer Nintendo Switch is on pace to sell ~20 million in its first year setting early adoption records not just for Nintendo but for all consoles.
The death of the console space was a bit off the mark indeed.
