PS4 Sales Reach 20.2 Million Units
Sony announces new PlayStation 4 sales milestone.
Sony on Wednesday announced a new sales milestone for the PlayStation 4. As of March 1, Sony had sold through (i.e. not just shipped) more than 20.2 million consoles. The PS4 continues to show the "fastest and strongest" growth in the history of all PlayStation hardware, Sony said.
This is up from 18.5 million PS4s sold at the beginning of January 2015.
"We are so grateful for the enormous support from PlayStation fans worldwide, and we are truly humbled that gamers around the globe have continued to select PS4 as the best place to play," PlayStation executive Andrew House said in a statement. "We remain steadfast in our commitment to deliver unique and interactive entertainment experiences powered by the network and the PS4 system's deep social capabilities."
By comparison, Microsoft's Xbox One had shipped 10 million units by the end of 2014. The company has not announced a new sales milestone so far this year.
