While we were celebrating over the holiday season, Sony's crack team of accountants and statisticians were crunching the numbers, and its results are something to behold. The PlayStation 4 sold more than 4.1 million units at retail over the holiday period, bringing its grand total up to a staggering 18.5 million. What's more, over 10.9 million users are currently subscribed to the firm's premium subscription service, PlayStation Plus.
"We are absolutely delighted that so many customers around the globe have continued to select the PS4 as their console of choice throughout this holiday season," said big-wig Andrew House in a press release. "We will continue to reinforce and deliver additional value on PS4 as the best place to play."
But as you sit and celebrate – or indeed, lament – this wildly impressive figure, perhaps spare a thought for the long suffering reporters here at Push Square Towers. Indeed, as Sony's super system continues to sell so briskly, we're very quickly running out of hyperbolic words and comparisons with which to describe its success. Feel free to give us some suggestions in the comments section below.
