Playstation 4 Reaches Another Commercial Milestone

Sony has announced that Playstation 4 has sold over 6 million units following its launch in Japan a few weeks ago, at the end of February. About 370,000 units have been sold, Sony revealed. Sony’s initial mark, as has been well documented, was to sell 5 million units at the end of its fiscal year, which ends at March 31. 13.7 million games have been sold on Playstation 4 as well.

To top it all off, half of those PS4 owners have signed up for Playstation Plus. A major reason for that is the fact that Plus is required to play games online, but the free games that are on offer every month is also a great incentive to subscribe to the service.

Sony Computer Entertainment president Andrew House said he was “absolutely delighted that PS4 is off to such a great start in Japan.”

“The responses we have received for the PS4 system’s integrated social capabilities have been phenomenal, and I couldn’t be more thrilled that gamers are utilising these unique features to engage, share, play and connect with users around the world.”

“[Sony] will continue to expand the world of PlayStation by growing its library of breakthrough games and bringing more innovative features and services only possible on PS4.”

Sony has stated that we should expect a PS4 scarcity up until the month of April, due to the immense commercial success of the system. The company also promised that we’ll be playing 100 games on the system this year, one of them has now been revealed to be Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Knight, which is set to launch sometime this year, in October.
