It was less than a month ago that Sony announced that the PS4 had sold over 5.3 million units across most of the world. Now that the system has been released in Japan, the company has updated their sales numbers. As of March 2, the PlayStation 4 has officially sold more than six million units worldwide, with 370,000 coming from Japan in just over a week’s time.
“I am absolutely delighted that PS4 is off to such a great start in Japan,” said Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. “The responses we have received for the PS4 system’s integrated social capabilities have been phenomenal, and I couldn’t be more thrilled that gamers are utilizing these unique features to engage, share, play and connect with users around the world. SCE will continue to expand the world of PlayStation by growing its library of breakthrough games and bringing more innovative features and services only possible on PS4.”
Not only has their hardware department seen a boost, but their software numbers are going strong, as well. Sony has also stated that PS4 software sales are now more than 13.7 million copies sold in retailers, giving this an impressive attach rate for a device that was released less than four months ago.
