Sony sold 2.1 million PlayStation 4 consoles in the first two weeks after launch


ps4Sony announced it sold one million PlayStation 4s on its first day, and now the company has revealed that it shifted 2.1 million units of its next-gen console during November… well, for the 16 days that the PS4 was on sale.

That’s a good way towards the 5 million target that it is aiming to reach by March 2014, and it comes at a time when the PS4 is still not widely available in all parts of the world: Japanese gamers must wait until February 22, for example.

Arch-rival Microsoft also sold one million units of its Xbox One console on launch day, but we’ve yet to hear of an updated figure from the company.
