PlayStation 4 Sales Approaching 20 Million Units

Posted by 125805786 on

PlayStation 4 PS4 sales have now almost reached 20 million units, according to the latest figures from Sony. With more than 18.5 million units already sold as of January 4th, 2015, the Japanese electronics giant is confident it will reach the 20 million milestone in no time. These figures are overly impressive for a console that is only one-year old. In fact, they make the PS4 the fastest selling PlayStation console to date, faster even than the PS2. A lot of those systems were sold during the holiday season, which Sony considers to be between Black Friday and January 4th. Approximately 4.1 million consoles were sold during that period, a figure that actually failed to meet analyst expectations.

However, the PS4’s overall numbers are eye-popping and mark a considerable increase compared to September 2014, when only 13.5 million consoles had been sold. As further prove of the PS4’s growing popularity, Sony revealed that some 10.9 million users subscribed to PlayStation Plus sometime during the period ending January 2nd, 2015. “We will continue to reinforce and deliver additional value on PS4 as the best place to play, by bringing even more exciting content and by enriching our wide array of service offerings,” Andrew House, President and Group CEO said in a press statement. Finally, more than 81.8 million PS4 games have been sold at retail and digitally, 17.8 million of which were sold during the holidays alone. Sony expects the strong software and hardware sales to continue throughout 2015, and is betting on exclusive titles like Bloodborne, The Order: 1886, and Uncharted 4 to make a big impact. Do you on a PlayStation 4? If not, do you plan on getting one, and why?
