Global PS4 sales have, as of April 6th, passed the 7m unit milestone, Sony has announced.
In-store and digital PS4 software sales have exceeded 20.5m – meaning an attach rate of just under 3:1. Sony reckons 120 games will be available by the end of 2014.
Sony adds that over 135m shares have been captured by the console’s Share button with over 4.9m Twitch gameplay broadcasts and nearly 90m spectator sessions
“The response from the global gaming community for PS4 has been overwhelming and we are truly humbled that gamers are selecting PS4 as their next generation console of choice,” SCE president and CEO Andrew House said.
“The PS4 journey has just begun, and although we are still facing difficulties keeping up with the strong demand worldwide, we remain steadfast in our commitment to meet the needs of our customers, and surpassing the wildest expectations of gamers by delivering new user experiences that inspire and engage. We look forward to unveiling many of these experiences to our fans in the coming months.”
Microsoft hasn’t released any fresh Xbox One sales data since saying at the end of January that it had shipped 3.9m of the consoles worldwide. The ongoing silence will likely speak volumes and add weight to those wishing to attribute a narrative to the machine’s ever-intensifying price cuts on the High Street.
