Sony announced yesterday that it has sold up to 100 million PlayStation 4 devices worldwide, after such a conspicuous result was expected that a decline would be physiological, especially in the first half of the year.
In the last quarter, Sony released 3.2 million PS4 and PS4 PRO a decline from the previous quarter and the same period of 2018, which, however, was still higher than the switch sales in the period from April to June. The Japanese company considers this decline to be completely normal and states that PlayStation 4 sales are now being partially withheld by consumers.

For this reason, many manufacturers are reluctant to announce the innovations in the pipeline with great anticipation. Think of Nintendo, which Switch Lite revealed only two months before the launch, so as not to burn the heel of the current model during the summer season.
