Sony has sold more than 5.3 million units of its PlayStation 4 game console around the world as of February 8, the company announced today, a figure that will no doubt pile pressure on its rival Microsoft.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
The PS4 became the best-selling game console in the US in January, according to NPD — dethroning Microsoft’s Xbox 360, which was NPD’s highest-selling console for years. The company claimed its latest console outsold the Xbox One by two-to-one. However, Microsoft took credit for selling the most games (albeit overall, across Xbox 360 and Xbox One).
Impressive though the figures are, Sony can expect a further sales boost on February 22, when the PS4 finally launches in its native Japan.
