[uPDATE 2] It has been brought to our attention that in 2008, then-Xbox executive Don Mattrick said: "History has shown us that the first company to reach 10 million in console sales wins the generation battle." This quote was in the context of the Xbox 360 beating PlayStation 3 to 10 million units sold in the United States.
 
[uPDATE] Following the publication of this story, Sony sent out an official release regarding the PS4's 10 million milestone. That figure accounts for worldwide sales as of August 10, and represents the "fastest and strongest" growth in PlayStation hardware in Sony's history.
 
"The responses we have received for the PS4 system's unique gameplay experiences powered by the network, along with its vast game portfolio has been phenomenal, and I am absolutely delighted that PS4 was able to reach this commemorative milestone in less than 9 months," SCE CEO Andrew House said. "We're so grateful for the enormous support from PlayStation gamers worldwide, and we look forward to bringing even more exciting content and services in the months ahead."
 
In terms of software sales, Sony has now sold a combined 30 million copies of retail and downloaded PS4 games through the PlayStation Store as of August 10.

Big news and a big win. Of course they couldn't help but take an extra dig at MS :laugh: (the author of the article, not Sony)

However, that could very well be the truth. We are in unknown waters right now. Either way, Sony is the king of the mountain.

This is actually 10 million sold to consumers, not shipped to retailers....WoV. We will see XboxOne results soon, but PS4 seems to be killing XboxOne.

I believe the original quite was first to 10mil sold in the US. But then we all know what a doofus Mattrick is so everything he says should be simply ignored and erased from the internet.

His quotes are brought up when it can be used as a funny jab at something, not for how accurate they are.

i always find it amusing that MS fanboys will wholeheartedly agree to whatever Mattrick have to say when he still on latched on Microsoft,

and today, said fanboys dismiss whatever his words was even if that was uttered when he still on Microsoft,

simply because he is not on Microsoft anymore.

I'm pretty sure almost every single word he uttered about Xbox One whilst he was still at Microsoft was derided by pretty much everyone in existence.

 

He had a catalogue of failures before that but that being the most recent example.
