Sony Interactive Entertainment just announced via press release that the PS4 console sold through (which means to customers) 6.2 million units during the 2016 holiday season.

This is related to the period between November 21st and January 1st in Japan and Asia, between November 20th and December 31st in North America and Latin America and between November 21st and December 31st in Europe.

This means that the console has now sold through 53.4 million units globally as of January 1st, 2017.

During the same period, the console sold to customers 50.4 units of PS4 software counting both brick and mortar stores and digital download on the PlayStation Store. On top of that, we learn that Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End sold 8.7 million copies globally as of December 21st, 2016.

Sony Interactive Entertainment President and Global CEO Andrew House accompanied the press release with a statement:

“We are truly grateful for the tremendous support from our fans and partners, which has helped to make this holiday season one of the best in our history We will aim to continue the momentum this year by broadening the PS4 title portfolio, further enriching the revolutionary gaming experiences on PlayStation VR and high quality gaming experience on PlayStation 4 Pro, while also expanding network services. We will remain steadfast in making the PS4 the best place to play.”

Looks like nothing is stopping the PS4 train, at least for now.
