The PS4 was the best selling console for April 2018 and it is still the best selling platform of 2018 to date. In terms of unit sales, April 2018 was the highest for a console since April 2009 back for the original Nintendo Wii console.
The Limited Edition God of War PS4 Pro bundle was one of the biggest sellers of the month. Overall hardware spending is up 14% compared to the same period last year. May 2018 could also see a rise for PS4 thanks to the release of Detroit: Become Human out soon.
