Sony Sells More Than 35.9 Mil­lion PlayS­ta­tion 4 Con­soles World­wide

HWM (Malaysia) - - GAX -

If you can re­call, back in De­cem­ber, we penned a fea­ture ar­ti­cle about how 2016 will be an ex­cep­tion­ally great year for the PlayS­ta­tion 4, pri­mar­ily be­cause it had a num­ber of ex­cit­ing ex­clu­sive games go­ing for it through­out the year, and the fact that the PlayS­ta­tion VR is sched­uled for re­lease as well.

What we didn’t ex­pect, though, is for the fes­tiv­i­ties to be­gin so early into the year, as Sony Com­puter En­ter­tain­ment an­nounced last month that it has shipped more than 35.9 mil­lion PlayS­ta­tion 4 con­soles world­wide as of Jan­uary 3, 2016. What’s even more im­pres­sive is that out of the to­tal 35.9 mil­lion units, a whop­ping 5.9 mil­lion of them were shipped dur­ing the 2015 hol­i­day sea­son alone, which lasted from Novem­ber 23, 2015 to Jan­uary 3, 2016. If you were to do the math, that trans­lates to 143,902 PlayS­ta­tion 4 units be­ing sold each day for 41 con­sec­u­tive days, which is truly an im­pres­sive achieve­ment.

“We are ab­so­lutely de­lighted that so many cus­tomers have se­lected PS4 as the best place to play through­out this hol­i­day sea­son and that the PS4 com­mu­nity is grow­ing more than ever,” said An­drew House, Pres­i­dent and Global CEO of Sony Com­puter En­ter­tain­ment Inc.
