We are thrilled that consumer reaction has been so phenomenal, Sony s chief executive Andrew House told FT. Sales remain very strong in North America, and we expect continued enthusiasm as we launch the PlayStation 4 in Europe and Latin America on November 29.
Sony has predicted that it will sell 3 million PS4 consoles by the end of the year and 5 million by the end of the fiscal year and going by the initial surge, it is well on its way to achieve those targets. In fact, market analysts have predicted that in the next five years Sony is likely to sell 49 million consoles, while Microsoft s Xbox One is likely to only reach 38 million.
