With the sales of the PS4 in Japan already made known, it was only timely that Sony brought out the party kazoos and celebrated with its follow-up announcement.
Recently, the company declared that it has sold 6 million units of the PlayStation 4 worldwide. About 13.7 million pieces of PS4 software have also gone off the shelves. The console’s share button has resulted in 100 million items of shared content and more than 3.6 million gameplay streamings and broadcasts.

Sony Computer Entertainment President Andrew House said that the device was off to a great start in Japan. “The response we have received for the PS4 system’s integrated social capabilities has been phenomenal, and I couldn’t be more thrilled that gamers are utilising these unique features to engage, share, play and connect with users around the world.”
For comparison’s sake, Microsoft’ next-generation console, the Xbox One, shipped 3.9 million units (not sold) in the USA and Europe. The console has yet to officially reach Southeast Asia, Japan and Korea markets at this point in time.
