Sony has announced during the Japanese PlayStation Awards that it has sold 2.1 million PS4 consoles through to the consumer as of December 1.
The hardware giant sold 1 million during the U.S launch, and this was followed by 1.1 million sales for PS4’s global launch which expanded to a total of 32 countries worldwide, including Europe and Latin America.
Andrew House described the sales as "an impressive and record-setting accomplishment" for both Sony and the industry.
"I want to personally thank PlayStation fans, both old and new, for your vote of confidence. The best part: the PS4 journey has just begun. In addition to an incredible lineup of PS4 games from the best developers in the world, we will continue to introduce valuable new features and services to PS4 in the months and years ahead.
"While PS4’s capabilities will continue to evolve, our commitment to gamers and breakthrough entertainment remains steadfast. We believe that videogames represent the pinnacle of artistry and entertainment, and we will work tirelessly to make sure that PlayStation remains the best place to play. Thank you for your passion and your support — we couldn’t have done this without you."
Sony has set a sales target for the end of its financial year of 5 million consoles and seems to be well on the way to that.
