PS4's global sales break the 2 million unit mark
Sony has proudly proclaimed some pretty impressive sales for the PS4 after its European and UK launches last Friday.
The PS4 is now available in 32 countries round the world and has sold 2.1 million units since it arrived in North America on November the 15th.
Sony Computer Entertainment CEO and president Andrew House wrote on the PS Blog Europe, “In what is shaping up to be a historic year for gamers, I’m delighted to share an important new milestone with you. PS4's North American debut on 15th November was PlayStation’s largest ever, with more than one million gamers picking up a PS4 in just 24 hours. Now, with PS4's global launch expanding to a total of 32 countries worldwide, including Europe and Latin America, I’m proud to announce that more than 2.1 million PS4s have been sold.”
”It’s an impressive and record-setting accomplishment for our company and for our industry,” he continued, “and we couldn’t have done it without you. I want to personally thank PlayStation fans, both old and new, for your vote of confidence. The best part: the PS4 journey has just begun. In addition to an incredible line-up of PS4 games from the best developers in the world, we will continue to introduce valuable new features and services to PS4 in the months and years ahead.”
PS4 is due to be launched in Japan in February of next year and the rest of the Far East around that time too. Which means the launch sales figures could soar even higher.
