4.2 Million PS4 Units Sold to Customers Worldwide To Date, Sony Confirms

on January 7, 2014 12:39 PM

During Sony’s keynote at CES 2014 in Las Vegas Sony Computer Entertainment President and CEO Andrew House announced updated worldwide sales numbers for the PS4.

Sony’s new console sold through (meaning to customers) 4.2 million units since its North American launch on November 15th until December the 28th, marking an extremely successful launch despite the situation of the economy, that can’t exactly be defined positive. For the sake of comparison Microsoft announced yesterday that it sold 3 million Xbox Ones by the end of 2013.

House boasted predicted sales of five million units by March 31st back at Tokyo Game Show, and by now we can pretty much say that the goal will be achieved and probably shattered.

We’ll have to wait and see if this incredible momentum will last, but for now I’m quite sure someone at Sony is toasting.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
