PS4 is Australia's fastest selling console of all time

PlayStation 4 got off to a great start in the U.S and UK and now we hear that Australia also appreciates Sony's efforts, as the hardware giant has confirmed that the PS4 is the fastest-selling console of all time in Australia.

It's PlayStation’s 20th anniversary in Australia early next year, so this announcement, which came from SCE Australia and New Zealand Managing Director Michael Ephraim is pretty apt news.

"As PlayStation powers into its twentieth year in Australia, we couldn’t be happier with our position with PS4 at the top spot of the interactive entertainment industry, said Ephraim, "I’ve watched this business grow over the 20 years and have had the pleasure of being part of the monumental change in innovation and category growth; of which PlayStation has historically been a key driver of. PS4 is now the fastest selling home console in Australian history and this reflects the passion of our players, our partners and the quality of the PlayStation offer."

NPD Group Austrlia’s Luis Gil added, "The Console Hardware category in Australia has more than doubled in value since release of 8th Generation Hardware in 2013. PS4 accounted for a substantial 44% of the total category value since its launch [note: data is from November 25, 2013 - October 26, 2014]."

Both PS4 and Xbox One seem to have got off to a fantastic start here in the West, with both now flying off shelves as Xmas approaches. Those who have waited until now are able to pick up either thanks to some great deals from ShopTo and indeed, it seems you are in your droves.

If you are yet to jump on board then don't forget to order your console from ShopTo.

Thanks PSLS.
