There Are Now Over 7 Million PS4 Owners in the World
With this many people, finding multiplayer games shouldn’t be too hard right?
Sony Computer Entertainment has announced that their flagship PlayStation 4 sold over 7 million units globally as of 6 April. That’s a million units off the shelves since Sony’s last announcement in March, continuing the upward trend since the gaming console’s launch.
“The PS4 journey has just begun, and although we are still facing difficulties keeping up with the strong demand worldwide, we remain steadfast in our commitment to meet the needs of our customers, and surpassing the wildest expectations of gamers by delivering new user experiences that inspire and engage. We look forward to unveiling many of these experiences to our fans in the coming months,” said SCE President and Group CEO Andrew House.
Software sales continue to be strong as well, exceeding 20.5 million copies at retail and PlayStation Store combined. Sony is boasting approximately 120 titles for this year, even if that list heavily comprises of non-exclusive games.
Though SCE seems to be doing well, Sony as a whole is continuing to sort out its finances. The company recently sold all their shares in Square Enix Holdings for an expected gain of 4.8 billion yen, a debatable move seeing how the publisher finally seems to understand what their fans want (or so they claim).
Over here in Singapore, the PS4 shortage continues to drag on. Last I checked most retailers have been reduced to the camera bundle, pricier by more than S$50. If you want one now you’re either going to have to do some hunting or pick up that Watch Dogs pre-order.
