PS4 sales have hit 7 million worldwide, surpassing Sony’s predictions
Despite the fact that the PS Vita may be beating the PS4 in the Japanese sales market, the PS4 has now hit a total of 7 million consoles sold.
In addition to PS4 console numbers sold, Sony also released some additional PS4 statistics.
Including both digital and retail, PS4 software has reached 20.5 million copies sold. Over 4.9 sessions of gaming have been broadcasted using Twitch or Ustream, resulting in 90 million views. And then there’s the magical Share button. 135 million times that share button has been used, to share with us interesting moments.
With this announcement, Andrew House, SCE president, and group CEO, had a little bit more to say.
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. 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.
These 7 million sales have come out of the 72 countries/regions that the PS4 is available in.
I think the reason behind their big success, is based on the fact that Sony followed through with their promise. And because of the future line-up of great games. You give someone something to look forward to, and they become your slave.
