PS4 Becomes Fastest-Selling PlayStation Console In History
We knew PlayStation 4 had topped 18.5 million worldwide.
But we weren't quite sure what it all meant, until now.
Sony tells GameSpot that their new console has become the fastest-selling machine in PlayStation history. Yep, even faster than the PS2. Said a Sony Computer Entertainment America spokesperson:
"We are humbled by this success and want to thank gamers worldwide for helping us achieve holiday sales of more than 4.1 million across 123 countries and regions. We are looking forward to another momentous year in 2015 and bringing an epic line up of titles to PlayStation fans around the world."
In contrasting news, the December NPD results show that Xbox One took the sales crown in the U.S. last month. Don't forget that Microsoft dropped the price of their system by $50 and offered several attractive holiday bundles.
We'll have to see what happens in 2015 and beyond!
