During the Japanese PlayStation Awards Sony announced that it has sold in excess of 2.1 million PS4 consoles through to the consumer as of December 1st. This figure does not include units sitting on store shelves (if there are any) and means Sony are well on their way to reach the 5 million predicted sales by the end of the financial year. The PS4 sold an impressive 1 million at launch in North America on the 22nd of November and a further million when it launched worldwide on the 29th.
Sony’s Andrew House described the PS4 sales as “an impressive and record-setting accomplishment” and went on to say.
“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 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. Thank you for your passion and your support — we couldn’t have done this without you.”
