Following Sony’s financial report showing 22.3 million PS4 sold worldwide, it has also emerged that Sony has sold 2 million consoles since launch. It took just 19 months for the console to reach 2 million units, reaching the milestone quicker than the PS2.
The milestone was reached over the May Day weekend. PlayStation’s UK boss Fergal Gara had the following to say:
“Reaching the milestone of two million PlayStation 4 consoles in the UK in less than 18 months is an achievement we are very proud of.
To be the best selling ‘next generation’ console in Britain – installing faster even than the PlayStation 2 – is testament to an amazing and constantly improving product, the hard work of our trade partners and the team at PlayStation UK, and most importantly, the passion of the players. I would like to thank every one involved in helping us achieve this landmark.”
