Less than four months since launch, sales of the PlayStation 4 have passed 6 million units, Sony Computer Entertainment announced March 4. The figure includes the 370,000 units sold in Japan since it launched there Feb. 22.
Software sales for the PS4 have passed more than 13.7 million, a figure that includes both physical disc and digital downloads.
More than half of PS4 owners have subscribed to the PS Plus membership service, which offers game discounts, cloud game saves and allows members to play full versions of titles from third-party developers and publishers.
“I am absolutely delighted that PS4 is off to such a great start in Japan,” said Andrew House, president and group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment. “The responses we have received for the PS4 system’s integrated social capabilities have been phenomenal, and I couldn’t be more thrilled that gamers are utilizing these unique features to engage, share, play and connect with users around the world.
“SCE will continue to expand the world of PlayStation by growing its library of breakthrough games and bringing more innovative features and services only possible on PS4.”
