Sales for the PlayStation 4 continue to grow. In a press release from Sony, it was announced that the company’s console surpassed 50 million units sold worldwide as of December 6. The PlayStation 4 Pro is said to have contributed towards that milestone, but specific numbers for the stronger hardware variant are unknown.
Another interesting figure is software sales. Over 369.6 million copies of PS4 games have been sold via retail and digital since the system’s launch.
“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.”
The impressive figure represents units sold – not shipped.
The PlayStation 2 was Sony’s most successful system, selling 155 million units worldwide as of March, 2012.
