When the Playstation 4 was released in North America on November 15th, it sold over 1 million consoles in just 24 hours. And now that the PS4 is available in a total of 32 countries, including Europe and Latin America, Sony has sold over 2.1 million consoles.
Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, had this to say on the Playstation 4’s success: “It’s an impressive and record-setting accomplishment for our company and for our industry, and we couldn’t have done it without you. 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.”
With the Playstation 4 scheduled to launch in 9 more locations later this month, Sony looks set to reach its goal of selling 3 million consoles by the end of the year. The Playstation 4 is also set to launch in Japan in February of next year.
