The PlayStation 4 has officially hit its latest milestone. A press release from Sony has just revealed that the PlayStation 4 has officially sold over 5.3 million units as of February 8, 2014. With this accomplishment, Sony has officially surpassed their original goal of selling 5 million PS4s by April 2014. The PS4 launches in Japan on February 22nd so we should expect an updated sales count sometime next week.
House previously announced that the PS4 sold 4.2 million units worldwide by the end of December 2013, outselling its competitors for the year of 2013.
Just last week, Sony stated that the PS4 was the highest selling console for January in North America despite console shortages. This month will surely be interesting as Sony is expected to allocate most of their units to Japan to prepare for the system’s launch this Saturday.
