Sony PlayStation 4 Sales Top 18.5 Million Worldwide
Sony also revealed that its PlayStation Plus (PS Plus) membership has grown to over 10.9 million users as of January 2, 2015. And as for software sales, strong support from third party developers has led to over 81.8 million copies sold in retail stores globally and through digital downloads through January 4, 2015, including 17.8 million sold during the holiday season.
"We are absolutely delighted that so many customers around the globe have continued to select PS4 as their console of choice throughout this holiday season," said Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. "We will continue to reinforce and deliver additional value on PS4 as the best place to play, by bringing even more exciting content and by enriching our wide array of service offerings."
While an insignificant tally in the grand scheme of things, Sony was able to add 12,300 PS4 sales to its global total -- that's the number of limited edition gray color PS4 consoles it released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the PlayStation brand.
