Sony announced today that the PlayStation 4 video game console has sold through to consumers more than 20.2 million units as of March 1.
Sony disclosed the numbers during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, where big game companies are jockeying for the attention of tens of thousands of game developers.
Sony said the PS4 continues to be the fastest-selling console in PlayStation history. Microsoft and Nintendo haven’t disclosed numbers for their consoles lately, but it’s a fair bet that Sony continues to outsell them by a healthy margin.
“We are so grateful for the enormous support from PlayStation® fans worldwide, and we are truly humbled that gamers around the globe have continued to select PS4 as the best place to play,” said Andrew House, President and Global CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, in a statement. “We remain steadfast in our commitment to deliver unique and interactive entertainment experiences powered by the network and the PS4 system’s deep social capabilities.”
Sony said big upcoming titles include Batman: Arkham Knight (Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment), Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd.), No Man’s Sky, Bloodborne, Until Dawn, Tearaway Unfolded, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (SCE Worldwide Studios).
SCE will continue to expand the world of PS4 to deliver entertainment experiences that are only possible on PlayStation.
