Sony Computer Entertainment is celebrating today, as just over three years on the market, the PlayStation 4 has made significant strides. The Japanese-based corporation has announced today that they have sold through 50 million PlayStation 4 units worldwide as of December 6.
“We’re truly delighted that the PS4 community continues to flourish since launch three years ago,” said Andrew House, President and Global CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment. “With tremendous support from our fans and partners across the globe, this year we were able to deliver an unprecedented lineup of hardware, including the new slimmer PS4, PS4 Pro and PlayStation VR. We will continue to provide the best gaming experiences available through our ground-breaking software lineup and network services, as we focus on accelerating our business and expanding the PS4 ecosystem.”
This is an incredible number consider this outpaces its predecessor substantially, selling around 10 million units since May. This no doubt thanks to the significant price cut and sales during Black Friday last month, along with the recent release of the PlayStation 4 Pro.
