Sony: PlayStation 4 Sales Top 10 Million

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president and CEO Jim Ryan announced at Gamescom this week that sales for the PlayStation 4 have topped more than 10 million units worldwide. This figure is the number sold to consumers and not shipped to retailers.

"The responses we have received for the PS4 system's unique gameplay experiences powered by the network, along with its vast game portfolio has been phenomenal, and I am absolutely delighted that PS4 was able to reach this commemorative milestone in less than 9 months," SCE CEO Andrew House said. "We're so grateful for the enormous support from PlayStation gamers worldwide, and we look forward to bringing even more exciting content and services in the months ahead."

The PlayStation 4 had previously sold seven million units back in April. That was also when Microsoft announced they had sold five million Xbox One consoles. However, Microsoft has not provided an updated figure, other than that Xbox One sales doubled in June month-over-month, due to the release of the Kinect-less SKU.

"Microsoft says it has sold more than 5 million Xbox One consoles to retailers" The Sony numbers are sold to consumers and the wording is misleading regarding Xbox One sales.

Ok... My prediction of "PS4>PS2", will be more easy close after this news. B)

Still a big maybe, PS2 sold about this well at the start too, but what made PS2 so successful was that it sold strong for 13 years.

XB sold 5 million XB1's back in April......VGC has it at 5 million NOW! You must have meant 5 million shipped, and wow that means PS4 is nearly outselling XB1 2:1.
