Sony’s PlayStation 4 has hit a new milestone. Today, one day before the monthly March NPD numbers are released, the company has announced that the PlayStation 4 has reached seven million units sold worldwide:
“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,” said Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. “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.”
Sony’s closest competition, Microsoft’s Xbox One, hasn’t released sales figures for their system since January however they are expected to have performed better in March with the release of Titanfall and heavy discounting of the system by most retailers.
