Sony said it has sold 2.1 million of its new PlayStation 4s in about two weeks. Fans snapped up a million of those units in the first 24 hours they went on sale Nov. 15.
“It’s an impressive and record-setting accomplishment for our company and for our industry, and we couldn’t have done it without you,” wrote Andrew House, president and group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, in a blog post. “I want to personally thank PlayStation fans, both old and new, for your vote of confidence.”
House called it the largest ever North America launch for PlayStation. The console is now available in 32 countries.
Microsoft, meanwhile, said it is setting records with its Xbox One that went on sale one week after the PS4 and that it can’t keep up with demand. The tech company wouldn’t say just how many units it has sold so far. It did release first day sales that clocked in at 1 million as well.
