The PlayStation 4 console has sold over 30.2 million units worldwide as of November 22, according to Sony Computer Entertainment. The news was announced with the following statement:
“We are sincerely grateful that gamers across the globe have continued to choose PS4 as the best place to play since launch two years ago,” said the President and Global CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc, Andrew House. “We are committed to bringing engaging games and entertainment services to users worldwide. Thanks to the support of our partners, PS4 continues to be the premier platform for game and interactive entertainment innovation.”
The PlayStation 4 has had an excellent year with several high profile exclusives such as Bloodborne and Until Dawn. Next year looks like it will be even more impressive with titles such as Uncharted 4, Rime, Horizon: Zero Dawn, The Tomorrow Children, and No Man’s Sky.
The PlayStation 4 has managed to outsell its main rival, the Xbox One for most of the year, though the Xbox One has had a recent boost in sales with the release of exclusive titles such as Rise of the Tomb Raider and Halo 5: Guardian, plus the added feature of backwards compatibility. Either way, it’s a pretty great time to be a console gamer.
