PlayStation 4 Sales Surpass Sony’s 5 Million Target Early

PS4

When the PlayStation 4 launched back in November, Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House set a goal of five million units sold by March 31, 2014. It was ambitious, but it looks as if that target was achieved six weeks ahead of schedule. Today, Sony announced the PS4 has sold 5.3 million units as of February 8th. Last week, the NPD confirmed Sony’s console sold nearly twice as well as the nearest next-gen competitor — the Xbox One — in the United States.

As we head into March, sales of the PS4 and Xbox One will undoubtedly improve as each console sees the arrival of their next big game. Titanfall is set to drop on Xbox One, as well as PC and Xbox 360, on March 11, and the PS4 exclusive Infamous: Second Son arrives on March 21.

    I’m pretty happy with my PS4, but a little annoyed that they haven’t offered an update to play 3D movies. Last I heard they had no immediate plans to do so, which is pretty irritating.

      I hear you on that.

    I don’t even really play my PS4 at the moment. I’ve got Knack, Assassins Creed 4 and Outlast. I might pick up the controller once a week, if that. It’s a cool system, there’s just not much on it I want until Watch Dogs. I’d be pretty bummed if I bought it. Luckily I won it in a competition ^_^

    That’s awesome news. I’m still waiting to get a PS4 until they release a game I desperately want. KHIII seems to be that title, but I’ll probably get a PS4 way before that releases lol.
