Sony is pleasantly surprised of the big sales that they are getting with the PlayStation 4 Pro consoles recently. It is believed that one PS4 Pro was sold for every five other PlayStation 4s getting purchased since Nov. 2016.

PS4 Pro Selling Quite Well

Sony recently revealed that the PS4 Pro is selling well this time around, despite not revealing its official sales numbers to the public. They did, however, make a comparison that since its launch, one in every five PS4s sold in the market has been a PS4 Pro. This is a better ratio than they expected due to its price, and its advantage of having 4K resolution for 4K TVs, the game company told Polygon in an exclusive interview.

PS4 Pro Way Ahead Of Expectations

Sony global sales chief Jim Ryan revealed that the PS4 Pro is way ahead of their expectations. Similarly to the PlayStation VR, they predicted that it would not sell well, which is why that it has low supplies. This makes the one in a five ration way better and more impressive than it was revealed.
