Sony Computer Entertainment announced today that its PlayStation 4 has cumulatively sold more than 5.3 million units worldwide and was January's bestselling console in the U.S., according NPD Group data as of Feb. 8.

 

Since its North American launch on Nov. 15, PS4 is available in more than 32 regions across North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia. It will launch in Japan on Feb. 22, coinciding with the launch of Sega's Yakuza Restoration and the next-gen beta of Square Enix's Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn.

 

"The PS4 system's momentum just keeps growing stronger, and we are extremely grateful for the continued passion and support of PlayStation fans." Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., said in a prepared statement. "I'm looking forward to Japanese fans sharing the excitement of the deep social capabilities and entertainment experiences only possible on PS4."

 

Microsoft's Xbox One was the bestselling console in the U.S. during December, according to NPD Group data, selling more than 908,000 units in its second month on the market. SCE declined to provide sales data at the time, stating that its console remained the cumulative leader for next-gen console sales since its launch.

 

Microsoft and Sony announced worldwide sales data for 2013 in early January, revealing that more than  3 million Xbox One and 4.2 million PS4 units were sold by the end of the calendar year.

3 weeks ahead of sales targets, GG Sony :woot:

 

So happy things are turning around for them in the gaming department. Almost a year to the date since the PS4 was announced too (Y) Japan should be another easy 1 million at least.

GG Sony, you have earned it. 

 

Japan should be a very nice boost for them.

At this rate they'll be 2:1 globally to Xbox in a couple months.

I'd like to see some comparison graphs and charts on physical availability, online accessibility, and monetary related numbers. Pure sales numbers don't really tell the story.

 

It seems, to me, that the console market has grown overall and that is what is fueling most of these numbers. Of course there are many factors at play.

I'd like to see some detailed analysis on what it all means.

 

Example:

In their first two months on the market, Xbox One outsold Xbox 360 by a 2-to-1 margin.

Sales from launch through Dec. 31:

Xbox 360 (2005): 1.5 million (worldwide)
Xbox One (2013): 3 million (worldwide)

So, obviously the market has grown...

Not bad considering no one wants consoles anymore now that everyone has iPhones to play games on.

Glad this is the way its going for Sony too. Was looking at the PS4 yesterday in awe at how sleek and small it is for the technology thats inside. Incredible. Microsoft's Xbox One looks like a bloat. lol

I am not really impressed by the PS4 so far thinking about selling it just to get Titanfall on Xbox one.  I think it will sell a tone.
