Sony has revealed the numbers for the PlayStation 4, and it’s looking fantastic for them. As of December 1st, 2.1 million consoles were sold worldwide since the US launch on November 15 – 700,000 were generated by sales in Europe and Australasia two days after the PS4’s release in those regions. “PS4 delivered the best launch in PlayStation history,” stated Andrew House, Sony Computer Entertainment President and group CEO. “Demand remains incredibly strong and continues to overwhelm the supply worldwide.”
Rivals Microsoft have yet to reveal their own figures for the Xbox One (launched a week after the PS4) in November. However the Xbox One has matched Sony in that it has also sold 1 million units in 24 hours.
