PS4 amasses 2.1 million sales
Sony's PlayStation 4 has sold by the overloaded truckload, and it's the strongest console launch for Sony so far...
In an announcement on the official PlayStation Blog, Sony Computer Entertainment president and group CEO, Andrew House, has stated that the PlayStation 4 has now sold 2.1 million units globally so far, initially selling one million units in the US within 24 hours.
“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 November 15th 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,” said House in the post.
“The best part: the PS4 journey has just begun. In addition to an incredible lineup 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.
“While PS4’s capabilities will continue to evolve, our commitment to gamers and breakthrough entertainment remains steadfast. We believe that videogames represent the pinnacle of artistry and entertainment, and we will work tirelessly to make sure that PlayStation remains the best place to play.”
2.1 million units at such an early stage is a hugely successful launch for Sony so far, and let's not forget, the PS4 isn't out in Asia yet...
