2.1 million PS4s sold – SCE president Andrew House thanks fans. “The journey has just begun”
PS4 has now sold 2.1 million consoles in barely weeks prompting Sony Computer Entertainment president Andrew House to deliver a personal thank you to PlayStation fans. “We couldn’t have done it without you”, said House, adding, ” the journey has just begun”.
The PS4 has been breaking records since it arrived. First Sony sold a million PS4s in 24 hours after going on sale in the US. Then the PS4 became the fastest selling console in UK history. Safe to say it’s done well then. Here’s the full message from Andrew House:
“In what is shaping up to be a historic year for gamers, I’m delighted to share an important new milestone with you. PS4′s North American debut on 15th November was PlayStation’s largest ever, with more than one million gamers picking up a PS4 in just 24 hours. Now, with PS4′s global launch expanding to a total of 32 countries worldwide, including Europe and Latin America, I’m proud to announce that more than 2.1 million PS4s have been sold.
It’s an impressive and record-setting accomplishment for our company and for our industry, and we couldn’t have done it without you. I want to personally thank PlayStation fans, both old and new, for your vote of confidence. The best part: the PS4 journey has just begun. In addition to an incredible line-up of PS4 games from the best developers in the world, we will continue to introduce valuable new features and services to PS4 in the months and years ahead.
While PS4′s capabilities will continue to evolve, our commitment to gamers and breakthrough entertainment remains steadfast. We believe that videogames represent the pinnacle of artistry and entertainment, and we will work tirelessly to make sure that PlayStation remains the best place to play.
Thank you for your passion and your support – we couldn’t have done this without you.”
