Only two years had passed since the release of PlayStation 4 and Sony already sold over 30 million units. Although there were ongoing debates on which console is better PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, PS4 seems to be doing good in terms of sales. But as preferences shouldn’t be discussed, Sony has proudly announced their increase of sales for their PlayStation 4, which is their best yet. The previous record was 100 million units sold and it was the PlayStation 2 over the course of 9 years. At this rate PlayStation 4 will surpass the previous record in just a couple of years.
It’s no wonder that gaming consoles rise at this high rate, because in the last couple of years gaming has become a big part in the entertainment industry and it’s not an ‘underground’ thing anymore it’s sure as hell mainstream now. However Sony has reached the 30 million sold units weeks after Europe, Japan, Australia and North America began to cut their prices on PlayStation 4.
“We are sincerely grateful that gamers across the globe have continued to choose PS4 as the best place to play since launch two years ago. We are committed to bringing engaging games and entertainment services to user’s worldwide.” said Andrew House, Chief Executive at PlayStation.
Of course the recent price drop had a factor in the increased sales of the PlayStation 4, but as the console’s main focus is gaming it surely offers amazing graphics with high end performance. Probably the reason behind choosing the PlayStation 4 instead of the Xbox One is mostly the game titles offered.
