PlayStation 4 Surpasses Five Million Units Sold

In just over a month’s time, Sony has been able to sell a million more PlayStation 4 units to customers. The mega corporation has announced today that, as of February 8 and a mere two weeks before the Japanese launch, the next generation system has been able to sell through a staggering 5.3 million consoles.

“I am thrilled that so many customers around the globe have continued to select PS4 as the best place to play throughout and beyond the holiday season,” said Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. “We are delighted that according to the NPD Group’s latest data, PS4 was January’s top-selling console in the United States. The PS4 system’s momentum just keeps growing stronger, and we are extremely grateful for the continued passion and support of PlayStation fans. February 22 sees the launch of PS4 in Japan, and I’m looking forward to Japanese fans sharing the excitement of the deep social capabilities and entertainment experiences only possible on PS4.”

Even without system-defining new releases, the system continues to fly off store shelves. The PlayStation 4 hit North America on November 15, two weeks later in Europe and is scheduled to be released in Japan on February 22.
