Sony’s PlayStation 4 console has hit yet another milestone. The system continues to break expectations with over 7 million units sold as of April 6; that’s roughly a million more than last month’s figure.
“The response from the global gaming community for PS4 has been overwhelming and we are truly humbled that gamers are selecting PS4 as their next generation console of choice,” said Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. “The PS4 journey has just begun, and although we are still facing difficulties keeping up with the strong demand worldwide, we remain steadfast in our commitment to meet the needs of our customers, and surpassing the wildest expectations of gamers by delivering new user experiences that inspire and engage. We look forward to unveiling many of these experiences to our fans in the coming months.”
Software sales have also been exponentially positive, with 20.5 million PS4 games sold through to consumers via the PlayStation Store and retailers. Sony’s shiny new system has been selling consistently and is currently the best selling console of this generation. Microsoft has yet to update their Xbox One sales past what we heard a couple of months ago, although most analysts believe they’re at 4 million.
