Sony’s newest console is certainly off to a great start. It was just last month we told you that the company had sold over a million of the things through to consumers, meaning a million people were busy not playing Knack. that was just a day after the North American launch. It’s now out in Europe and much of the rest of the world – sop naturally, that umber is quite a bit higher.
Sony says it’s sold through 2.1 million of the things.
“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 Sony’s Andrew House on the PS Blog.
“It’s an impressive and record-setting accomplishment for our company and for our industry, and we couldn’t have done it without you. 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 line-up 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.”
The PS4 is set to be released here in South Africa next week Friday, where it will bring the total to at least 2.1002 million units sold.
Interestingly, in less than a month, the PS4 is now at over half the Wi U’s lifetime global sales, which sit at just under 4 million right now. Unfortunately, not even the mighty Mario has had much effect on Wii U system sales.Mario has had much effect on Wii U sales.
