It looks like it is going to be a good weekend for Sony. The company has just announced their latest PS4 sales update for April 2014 and it’s good news. PS4 units have now passed the 7 million mark globally, with the company calling the success “overwhelming” and “humbling”.
The PS4 launched in the US during November 2013 of course, with Sony even delaying a release in their home country until February 2014. That hasn’t stopped the interest in the next-gen system though and these latest figures firmly suggest that Sony has a big lead over Microsoft in the PS4 Vs Xbox One sales war so far.
7 million consoles have been sold as of April 6, that’s the official word from Sony. Remember that PS4 stock is still at a low, with consumers finding it painfully difficult to locate stock in some regions – Asia included.
Microsoft meanwhile has been silent since January. We last heard an official statement from the company at the end of January, when Microsoft announced that 3.9 million Xbox One consoles had been sold worldwide.
Since then though, we have had no updated figures in the months that have passed, so it will be very interesting to find out if Microsoft has managed to get close to the 7 million mark that Sony has achieved globally as of April.
If you own either console, let us know what you think about your purchase since launch. Are you happy with it and are looking forward to the rest of the year?
Do you think Sony will win the next-gen war based on this evidence of Sony coming out on top?
