PlayStation 4 Sales Now Exceed 20 Million Globally

| March 3, 2015

PlayStation 4 Sales Now Exceed 20 Million Globally News PlayStation  Sony PS4 PlayStation 4 GDC

GDC 2015 has just kicked off and Sony has wasted no time flaunting their new PlayStation 4 sales milestone. 20.2 million units have been sold worldwide, giving Sony some serious bragging rights at the moment. This is mainly due to the fact that the last update provided by Microsoft referencing Xbox One sales was given in late December and the figure was sitting just above 10 million, half of the competition. Where they stand now exactly is unknown, but we imagine Microsoft will be forced to fire back with their own data soon.

Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House expressed his joy in regard to the PS4’s overwhelming success and had this to say on the matter:

“We are so grateful for the enormous support from PlayStation fans worldwide, and we are truly humbled that gamers around the globe have continued to select PS4 as the best place to play.”

The PS4’s momentum is nothing short of impressive and we’re eager to see how 2015’s exclusives and (hopefully surprising) E3 announcements impact the growing gap between the competing platforms. What announcement do you believe could tip the scales back in Microsoft’s favor or secure a win for Sony this year? As usual, share your thoughts in the comments section below and be heard.

  • The PC Master Race

    Still no games. Downgrades and a shitty already failed VR Peripheral. 20 million sales and still garbage. Hilarious.

    Meanwhile, Valve kicking ass and taking names. Making consoles obsolete with the Steam Link

    • Silly PC fanboy.

      • The PC Master Race

        Sony shills pretending to be Nintendo fanboys disgust me.

        • Guest

          Like how xbots pretend to be limited PC peasants. :^)

          • Allen

            HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

            Funny joke.

        • I don’t even own a PS4, little PC fanatic.

          • Kevin Phan

            try again peasant, gaben’s grace cannot be penetrated by the likes of you.

      • Allen

        Keep crying at a silky smooth 15 FPS.

        • Nope. Silly PC fanatic.

    • tasslehoff

      Steam the only link that when being put on you’re computer if deleted can take out all of you’re PC.

      • Allen

        Keep crying those silky smooth 12 FPS.

        • tasslehoff

          Keep believing in the hype of Steam.

          • Allen

            Keep believing the Greatness will come.

          • tasslehoff

            Keep believing Steam is great.

          • Allen

            Free online, best prices, best versions of multiplats, and doesn’t go down like PSN.
            Stay mad shill.

          • tasslehoff

            Free online nope you have to pay too get online. Best prices if you want junk you pay more for better games. Best version of multiplats Opinion. Steam doesn’t go down as much but still goes down.
            Stay stupid idiot.

          • Kevin Phan

            when did you have to pay for online? I can download a game for free right now that isnt even on steam and play it online. and calling people idiot? Typical peasant shill becoming defensive when all of its walls are broken down by the likes of Gabens Grace.

          • tasslehoff

            Do you get you’re internet free genius? As far as calling him an idiot he goes around insulting people on a regular basis. Keep trying though with all you’re alts.

          • Allen

            Yes, free online, shill. Educate yourself.
            Junk games? HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
            Best versions of multiplats is true. Best graphics and can use a controller if I wanted to.
            Steam only went down for less than an hour. Unlike the POS4 which went down a whole 3 days and still has downtime frequently.

          • tasslehoff

            Nope you have to pay for you’re internet genius. If you don’t you won’t be playing online. Also steam was down more than a few hours according to their own website bit you’re story keeps changing. Don’t worry maybe Steam will get rid of that little mistake called delete one of you’re files delete you’re whole pc whoops.

          • Allen

            Everyone has to pay for their internet shill. That means that you’re paying TWICE as much on a console. A sub to play online, and internet for online to work.
            Link to the Steam downtime? I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re lying as usual like an angry console peasant that got his potato thrown on the ground.

          • tasslehoff

            Wrong genius you buy a disk you don’t need the internet that is only for online. So that proves you wrong again.

            Dam links proving you wrong again although the only liar I see is you with that story that changes all the time.

            Keep trying though child.

          • Allen

            And went down for less than an hour.
            Unlike PSN that goes down every week.
            3 weeks in 2011 was when I laughed my ass off.

          • tasslehoff

            Every week Lol keep lying. As far as things going down a lot looks like the great Steam does too. Wow though you’re story stayed the same for once until you switch to one of you’re alt’s then it will change like usual.

          • Allen

            Every week? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA
            Keep crying peasant.

          • tasslehoff

            Just like steam.

          • Allen

            HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAA

          • tasslehoff

            Lol are you laughing because steam is trying to make a system as well. Lol that is funny

          • Allen

            When I already have a PC that’sway more powerful than a POS4 or shibox done?

          • tasslehoff

            Don’t worry it will fail as a system LOLOLOLOLOL

          • Allen

            Again, why get it when I have a PC?
            Silly shill.

          • FloridaSun72

            Still doesnt get all the games you get with consoles.

          • Kevin Phan

            adding all ps4 AND xbox one exclusives, PC still has over 100x more exclusives than they do.

          • FloridaSun72

            There could be a million exclusives on PC but if their garbage no one cares. Face it the best PC exclusives come from the same devs that make games for consoles.

          • Allen

            That are all basically shit besides GTA V?
            Most of Xbox’s games are on PC.
            Most of PS exclusives are movies and can be beaten and never played again.
            At least Wii U has style.
            Face it rat. You’re consoles just want to rival PCs and they’re failing miserably.

          • FloridaSun72

            How would you know whats good or not unless youve played them on the PS4 which makes you a hypocrit. Face it the PS4 has the console exclzsives gamers want to play now and whats coming in the future .

            No one besides you and your 3 other names could care less about PC gaming. If they did you would be on PC message boatds but your not your always here. Why?Because theres no one there else to talk to excrpt other douchers like yourself.

          • Allen

            This is funny coming from the shill.
            Nobody cares about PC gaming? 100+ million users on Steam would say otherwise, shill.

          • Kevin Phan

            yes i will thank you, cant say the same for the peasants like you.

          • Kevin Phan

            the hype is real.

    • rscottyg’s mother

      It really upsets you, doesn’t it? :)

    • FloridaSun72

      Whats a Valve?

    • Allen

      You are all you have, the dumbest shill ever.

      • The PC Master Race

        Still no games on the PS4 :^)

        • Allen

          Yeah hundreds upon hundreds of games available right now on PS4 is no games. Hell I’ve got 34 from my instant game collection on my PS4 alone + all the ones I’ve purchased and so many not available on PC. Destiny, The Last of Us, MLB the show, Infamous, LBP 3, Resogun, Bloodborn, The Order, Driveclub, Helldivers, Killzone, Knack, The Playroom, Shadow of the Beast, Until Dawn to name a few. All that and it fits nicely in the living room, a place where PC just can’t quite get to in the same quality.

          Hell even Xbox has exclusives not on PC and of course some of the greatest of all time on the WiiU. They had an excellent year in 2014 and have an excellent one coming up in 2015.

          I was in my local computer shop “Cyber Center”, a core PC inspired work place. Guess what they were playing in the back? Destiny on their PS4. Chatted with the owner about PC douche bags like you for a bit and decided on my next card. Good times laughing about idiots like you and enjoying the best of PC and console gaming.

          you see you can talk all the shit you want but in the end you will always lose because you aint got $hit.

          • What’s your favorite Wii U game?

          • The PC Master Race

            PS4 still has no games :^)

          • Allen

            Destiny? Overhyped garbage that lacks content. Many people agree.
            TLOU? Play it once, then never again.
            MLB? HAHAHAHAHAHA
            Infamous? Gets boring after a week.
            LBP 3? I have Minecraft and others like Cubeworld and Project Spark. (A supposed Xbox game)
            Resogun? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
            Bloodborne? Who knows?
            The Order? 6 hour game that you play once.
            Driveclub? Project Cars easily destroys that.
            Helldivers? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
            Killzone? Many other shooters beat this.
            Knack? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
            Like I said, press X to win games. :^)

    • gaben is a dumbass

      Sure pc shill
      Mainstream doesnt care about you

  • The question is though, how big is the gap? Where is MS at? Stay tuned to find out! Next Week!

    lol

  • JCheezy

    Nice

  • Tga215

    Glad to be apart of that number

  • $125882522

    Lol :^)

  • Allen

    Over 20 million idiots who still buy consoles. SMH.

    • FloridaSun72

      And one idiot whos jealous otherwise wouldnt spend half his life on console threads.

      • Kevin Phan

        Can say the same about you, peasant shill

        • FloridaSun72

          Not really since i actually do own consoles and dont waste time screaming about how they are best on PC message boards. Idiot.

          • Dammage

            How does one even try to say consoles are better than PC? I’m sure you would do it if you had some arguments

          • FloridaSun72

            Your missing the point. I think u pcbots are worse than xbots.

          • Allen

            And Sony shills like you are cancer. Paying a sub just to play old games. (PS NOW) SMH.

          • FloridaSun72

            I dont pay it. Its optional

          • Allen

            Who said you did? I’m talking about Sony shills.

        • Allen

          Idiot PC douche bags…oh now console gamers can’t comment on a console gaming article?

          Why is the same PC dumb ass douche bag who now has two accounts and his thumbing himself up here every weekday, every weekend and holidays all hours of the day?

          You do realize you have a console exclusive avatar right?

      • Allen

        And you’re doing the same bashing the shitbox and defending the Shitstation 4 to death.
        Keep crying those silky smooth 13 FPS tears.

        • FloridaSun72

          Correct im talking about my favorite consoles over the one i do not like. You dont own or play consoles yet continue to rant about PC gaming which this and the other 100 threads you post in arent about.

          You might as well be speaking another language. When a PC is boxxed and marketed on a shelf in gamestop and considered a gaming console not personal computer then you would be more relevant.

          • Allen

            No. You bash the shitbox calling it the xflop and calling it a piece of shit. Scrolling through your comment history is proof enough, shill.

            “You dont own or play consoles yet continue to rant about PC gaming”

            You do the same with the shitbox, peasant. Not my fault your this mental.

          • FloridaSun72

            Yes i do but its on a console message board that follwed a console article. The real question is why do you care what i bash seeing how you hate consoles period. More importantly why are you always on console threads? The other PC gamers just as lame as you are and cant handle people like yozrself??

          • Allen

            And yet you hate on other consoles that you don’t own.
            Lucky I don’t have your shitty consoles. PC is the way to go, but of course you’ll just deny it.

          • FloridaSun72

            Still doesnt explain why your here

          • Allen

            This is the internet, buddy. Anyone can go anywhere on whatever website. I love making fun of you console peasants.

        • FloridaSun72

          Why do you care unless your an xbot.

          • Allen

            “Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-Y-YOU MUST BE AN XBOT!!!1”
            Spoken like a true Sony shill.

          • FloridaSun72

            You dont deny it

          • Allen

            I guess you have reading problems. Not surprising as you were dumb enough to buy these consoles when PCs were already ahead.

  • FloridaSun72

    The gamers have spoken.

  • Dammage

    One has to wonder why though, I think it’s mainly off of the “It’s not Xbone!” hype. Bloodborne is prolly the first game to make PS4 worthwhile and it’s not even out yet.

    • FloridaSun72

      Will be out soon. SFV also a huge exclusive.

      • Dammage

        You mean that game that’s on PC as well?

        • FloridaSun72

          But not Xbone.

          • Allen

            Who needs either when you have a PC?

          • FloridaSun72

            Who needs pc? Not me its full of tards like yourself

          • Allen

            When there’s so many kids on XBL and PSN?
            Who needs PC?
            -More powerful
            -Cheapest games which makes a PC cheaper in the long run.
            -The most exclusives.
            -The most games.
            -Can hook up to TV.
            -Free online.
            -Network rarely goes down compared to subs on console.
            -Less kids online.
            -Can use almost any controller.
            -Best graphics.
            -Best game sales.
            -Can do almost anything a console can do, but better.

            Stay mad, shill. You make this too easy.

          • FloridaSun72

            Too bad jerkoffs like yourself play PC which are like a dorks dork community. no thanks

          • Allen

            Like the POS community?

          • FloridaSun72

            Every group has its idiots but you honestly cant put down the PS community as long as Xbots and PC Master race communitys exist.

          • Allen

            True, but they haven’t been anywhere near the Sony children.

      • Is that even coming this year?

        • FloridaSun72

          Yup

      • Allen

        Another game that will play better on PC. Keep waiting, peasant.

        • FloridaSun72

          Do you actually play games or just spend all your time ranting about them? If theres one genre that is meant to be played on a console its fighting games. I dont see PCs at the EVO to

          • Allen

            When I can plug in any controller to my PC?
            Silly shill.

          • FloridaSun72

            A controller? You sound like a console gamer isnt your mouse and keyboard enough?

          • Allen

            Just saying I have the option.
            Another way why PC is superior. Though I do have to admit that console controllers are better for a few genres.

  • Dennis

    Sold to whom? Retailers or consumers?

    Either way, good for Sony.

    Now it’s time for the console makers to turn up the heat and get their crap together.

    • SisterSafetyPin

      This isn’t a Microsoft press release. Sony has been releasing sold-through numbers since launch

      • Not really. When 13.5 million was announced that was a shipped #.
        Anyways, good for Sony. Really good.

        • SisterSafetyPin

          Yes really. Even when they said 13.5m shipped they said 10m sold. Pointless reply on your part

        • FloridaSun72

          Talk about grasping at straws…

          • So stating a fact is grasping at straws?
            You’re the guy who always complains about batteries! Talk about hypocrite.

          • FloridaSun72

            Pointing out the one time Sony announced shipped numbers over sold numbers isnt the same thing as a company purposly releasing a controller that needs batteries with the hope that the consumer breaks down and buys a rechargerable.

            I said grasping at straws because your out of things to say against the PS4 seeing how they are dominating this gen.

          • Out of things to say? You only bring up batteries. What’s wrong with having an optional power supply?
            You think I’m a fanboy when I don’t even bash the PS4, and I even plan on getting one. You, on the other hand, just mindlessly bash the other system just because you can’t afford it and your parents won’t get you one. Seeing as how you complain about batteries all the time, looks like you can’t afford it is the likely problem.

          • FloridaSun72

            Lol my parents. Im not a child like you. Why waste my money when the PS4 and Wii U have everything a gamer could want?

          • More subjective arguments?

          • Allen

            HAHAHAHAHAHA
            You and the Mask are cancerous for supporting consoles.

      • Dennis

        I still think there is some fudge-factor in there. Including bundles with TVs and such as a ‘sale’. All MFG do this…I know the PS4 is a head in sales, but I’d like real numbers from both, ya know?

  • ?????

    Xbox response:

    The Xbox 360 and the Xbox one software sales in the US only combined make up xx% share!

    We have sold XX number of units to retailers

    US sales are all that matter

    We want to be #1

    We aren’t #1 but we want to be the best platform

    We all the games we have this year are playable….just you wait

    • You seem upset about something. What does this have to do with Xbox?

      • Thrash Majora’s Mask

        That they are going to respond. Did you not read the article? I just saved you the trouble of seeing what they are going to say. They don’t want to look like the poor kid on the block so they will likely give a half assed reply like 360 and xbone combined sales and even that is likely to only include 1 territory to try and make it look better. If not that they they will use one of the other lame responses I listed.

    • Allen

      PC is already the best, shill. What’s embarrassing is that you hide behind other names.
      Enjoy that silky smooth 2.1 billion dollar loss Sony has, shill.
