Sony Interactive Entertainment has today announced that the PlayStation 4 has “sold through” more than 50 million units to consumers worldwide as of December 6.
Yup, despite Microsoft gradually gaining dominance it’s looking as if Sony is still going strong with the PlayStation 4. In an announcement today the company unveiled that not only has the PS4 sold over 50 million units, but this past Black Friday was “the best ever Black Friday week in the history of PlayStation”.
In addition to strong console sales the company also added that PS4 software sales, both digitally and at retail, have surpassed the 369.6 million mark as of December 4, 2016.
“We’re truly delighted that the PS4 community continues to flourish since launch three years ago.” said Andrew House, President and Global CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment. “With tremendous support from our fans and partners across the globe, this year we were able to deliver an unprecedented lineup of hardware such as the new slimmer PS4, PS4 Pro and PlayStation VR. We will continue to provide the best gaming experiences available through our ground-breaking software lineup and network services, as we focus on accelerating our business and expanding the PS4 ecosystem.”
With the launch of The Last Guardian and a ton of fantastic games coming in 2017, this number is likely to continue to grow well into the new year.
