During the keynote speech Andrew House announced that Sony has now surpassed 4.2 million sales worldwide as of December 28th, 2013.
“The momentum of the PS4 system keeps getting stronger and we couldn’t be more thrilled gamers worldwide are enjoying the incredibly immersive gaming experiences along with deep social capabilities and entertainment provided by our network,” House said in a statement. “After a remarkable launch, we look forward to bringing even more exciting content and continuing to explore the power of the PS4 system by adding new features and services, including PlayStation Now, in 2014.”
Sony had already announced that 2.1 million PS4’s had been sold worldwide as of early December, of which a staggering one million were sold within 24 hours smashing the previously held record in the UK.
The PS4 is now the fastest selling console in UK history and this is nothing short of an incredible achievement, especially at a time when many were critical of console gaming. Claiming that mobile gaming was where success lies and consoles lack a future, no one can argue with the hard statistics and PlayStation is back bigger than ever.
