PS4 Sales Crosses 30 Million Milestone

Global sales of PlayStation 4 have surpassed 30 million units in just two years since the console’s release, Sony revealed on Wednesday.

Sony claims that the (partially estimated) sell-through figure “demonstrates the fastest and strongest growth in PlayStation hardware history.”


Sony’s best-selling console, the PlayStation 2, broke all-time industry records with sales of more than 155 million units during its twelve years on the market. Its predecessor sold more than 100 million units in nine years. The PlayStation 3 has reached 80 million units in roughly the same amount of time.

The 30 million sales milestone was achieved just weeks after a series of PS4 price cuts across North America, Australia, Japan, and Europe.


Andrew House, the group chief executive at PlayStation said: “We are sincerely grateful that gamers across the globe have continued to choose PS4 as the best place to play since launch two years ago.”

“We are committed to bringing engaging games and entertainment services to users worldwide. Thanks to the support of our partners, PS4 continues to be the premier platform for game and interactive entertainment innovation.”
