Looking ahead to 2018, PS4 has a number of major exclusives due for release, including God of War, Detroit: Become Human, and Spider-Man.

Andrew House, president of Sony Interactive Entertainment, is pleased with these results and is pleased that virtual reality is gaining ground. "We will continue to work closely with partners to maintain this momentum and remain steadfast in making PS4 the best place to play". While the Oculus and Vive are standalone systems that require a high-end PC, the PlayStation VR unit catered to its existing fan base because it only required a PS4 to run the system.

PS4 games have been sold - that's in shops and from the PlayStation Store - Sony said.

Many feared that Nintendo was beginning to lose its way, but the Switch has redeemed the company's fate.
