As of February 8, the Sony PS4 has sold 5.3 million units and is continuing to sell. While not surprising that the console is selling, the sheer number of units is amazing. It should only get better as more games for the console arrive over the next few months.
Andrew House had this to say about the console sales:
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. 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.
I am looking forward to seeing the number of sales when they are released after the Japanese launch.
