Are you surprised by any of these figures? Sony has been sitting on top of the mountain but one console which might catch up top it is the Nintendo Switch. There's also more than 130 videogames and other content now in development for the headset states the company, all due to be released by the end of 2018. Considering this, with a slew of highly anticipated exclusives slated for next year such as Santa Monica Studio's God of War and Supermassive Games' The Inpatient, Sony is likely to see software sales for both PS4 and PSVR to grow exponentially in 2018. And it's also sold almost 200 million games for the console. Prior to it's launch many people thought of the Nintendo Switch as an afterthought. Microsoft hasn't released unit sales numbers since January of this year when it announced that 26 million Xbox One units had been sold. That's pretty impressive considering it was only released in March.
