One In Every Five PlayStation 4s Sold Is A Pro

I'm not sure how I take intentionally vague statements like this. The PSVR has only sold 100,00 units since the past four months? One in every five PS4s sold is a Pro version sounds great...but how many have sold?

PlayStation VR now boasts more than one million units sold worldwide, up from about 900,000 in February 2017. According to Sony, it's been sold out from day one. "We don't see it as a fad, it's a brand new medium, not only for gaming entertainment, but non-gaming entertainment," says Layden. And of every five PlayStation 4s Sony sells, Layden says one is a PlayStation 4 Pro, a laudable achievement given its $100 price premium, enthusiast target demographic and the nascency of the 4K television market (where it's real allure lies).
