Like hotcakes

During its Gamescom conference today, Sony revealed that the PlayStation 4 has sold a flabbergasting ten million units worldwide since its launch last year. The Japanese giant also noted that 30 million pieces of software have been purchased by consumers in that time. To be honest, we've run out of ways to express how impressive these figures are, so instead, we'll just let company executive Andrew House do the talking.

“The response that we have received for the PS4 system’s unique gameplay experiences powered by the network, along with its vast game portfolio, has been phenomenal," House stated. "I am absolutely delighted that PS4 was able to reach this commemorative milestone in less than nine months.”

And as always, the platform holder was quick to thank the fans for their commitment. “We’re so grateful for the enormous support from PlayStation gamers worldwide," the big-wig continued. "We look forward to bringing even more exciting content and services in the months ahead.”
