According to a report directly from Sony, the company's 2½-week-old PlayStation 4 video game console has sold more than 2.1 million units worldwide following its European, Australasian, and Latin American launches. The console launched in North America on November 15 selling roughly one million units at that time.
"PS4 delivered the best launch in PlayStation history with the North American release and we've continued this incredibly successful start in Europe, Australasia and Latin America," said Andrew House, President and Group CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. "Demand remains incredibly strong and continues to overwhelm the supply worldwide, but we are diligently working to meet those growing demands and to deliver additional PS4 units to our retail partners throughout the holiday season. We are extremely grateful for the passion of PlayStation fans and thank them for their continued support."
The PS4 system's games portfolio, which currently includes first-party exclusives such as Knack and Killzone: Shadow Fall, is set to expand in 2014 with games like inFAMOUS: Second Son and MLB 2014: The Show.
