Sony has announced that they have sold more than 5.3 million PlayStation 4 consoles since the console launched last year, this is up until the 8th of February 2014.
Sony have also said that their PlayStation 4 console is ‘continuing to demonstrate strong growth and momentum’, and last week we heard that the new console was the top selling console in the US in January.
“I am thrilled that so many customers around the globe have continued to select PS4 as the best place to play throughout and beyond the holiday season,” said Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. “We are delighted that according to the NPD Group’s latest data, PS4 was January’s top-selling console in the United States. The PS4 system’s momentum just keeps growing stronger, and we are extremely grateful for the continued passion and support of PlayStation® fans. February 22 sees the launch of PS4 in Japan, and I’m looking forward to Japanese fans sharing the excitement of the deep social capabilities and entertainment experiences only possible on PS4”
Microsoft and Sony are both fighting for the top spot, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see some sales figures from Microsoft shortly.
