on November 6, 2014 12:22 PM

Sony has had much to celebrate in the last year with the PS4 being a huge success in the US, UK, and over a large section of territories in the world – this time around, Sony is celebrating another victory in the land down under with its latest console.

According to data from the NPD Group Australia, Sony has taken the crown with the PlayStation 4 as the fastest-selling console in the country’s history, following new sales data ending on October 26th, 2014.

Despite a rough start in the console’s launch last year in the region, the PS4 took the title with an impressive reaction from Australian gamers, with the NPD Group Australia detailing on the system’s accomplishments:

“The Console Hardware category in Australia has more than doubled in value since release of 8th Generation Hardware in 2013. PlayStation 4 accounted for a substantial 44% of the total category value since its launch”.

“As PlayStation powers into its twentieth year in Australia, we couldn’t be happier with our position with PS4 at the top spot of the interactive entertainment industry.”
