Sony PlayStation 4 Surpasses 20 Million Sales Milestone

Sony has sold 20.2 million PlayStation 4 videogame consoles, the company said Tuesday, making the device the fastest-selling PlayStation system in the company’s history.

The March 1 figure is the latest sales update of the PS4 after Sony announced 18.5 million units in early January. The system,mpriced at $400, launched in November 2013.

The PS4 has been one of the rare bright spots for Sony, with the console far outpacing PlayStation 3 sales and even those of the Xbox 360 from Microsoft.

But Microsoft’s Xbox One also has been selling briskly, with next-generation consoles selling 60% faster in the U.S. than the previous versions of the system, according to research firm the NPD Group.

In November, Microsoft reported that it had shipped 10 million Xbox One consoles, but it hasn’t updated the figure since.

“We are so grateful for the enormous support from PlayStation fans worldwide, and we are truly humbled that gamers around the globe have continued to select PS4 as the best place to play,” said Andrew House, president and global CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment. “We remain steadfast in our commitment to deliver unique and interactive entertainment experiences powered by the network and the PS4 system’s deep social capabilities.”

Sony sold 80 million PlayStation 3 consoles through November 2013, and over 155 million PlayStation 2s, while the first PlayStation also sold more than 100 million units.
