Sony said it has sold over 18.5 million units of its PlayStation 4 (PS4) gaming console since its launch slightly more than a year ago. This makes the PS4 the fastest selling PlayStation console ever, Sony President and CEO, Kazuo Hirai announced at the press conference.
Hirai mentioned that the company sold over 4.1 million units of the PS4 during the holiday season alone. At the end of March 2014, Sony had announced it had sold more the 7 million units of the PS4, ahead of its target of 5 million units. Sony faced demand outstripping supply throughout that period. In slightly over three quarters, Sony has since sold over 11.5 million PS4 units.
