Sony announces that the PS4 has sold over 6 million units
Just last month Sony had revealed that their newest console had sold 5.3 million copies worldwide, and now, with March just beginning, they’ve revealed that they’ve successfully sold over .7 million more units, surpassing the 6 million mark.
This is due in no small part to last week’s Japan launch, but Sony is still surprised. Said Mr. Koller, “It’s truly humbling to see the rate at which gamers across the globe are choosing PS4 as their next gen console of choice. Even more exciting is what happens when gamers power up their PS4s. In the United States, more than 90% of PS4s are online, enabling gamers to connect, compete and share their greatness with friends and fellow gamers.”
Just how many people are connecting? He goes on to state, “There have now been more than 3.6 million live broadcasts, and more than 56 million spectate sessions on PS4 through Twitch and Ustream. In fact, since January 1st, PS4 gamers account for 20% of daily broadcasters on Twitch. PS4 owners are also embracing the Share button on the DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller, with more than 100 million shares captured as fans show friends their latest achievements on Facebook and Twitter.”
Congratulations to the Sony team on surpassing another milestone of sales.
