Sony just recently let the world know that 9.7 million PlayStation 4 (PS4) games were sold online and in retailers at the close of 2013. In addition to those impressive gaming sales, Sony announced that 4.2 million PS4 consoles had been sold worldwide since the launch of the PlayStation 4 and the close of 2013.
Gaming consoles and video game titles were bought at establishments and websites such as GameStop, Wal-Mart, Amazon and Target. They were also purchased digitally over the PlayStation Network. FIFA 14, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Killzone: Shadow Fall and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag were among the best-selling games on the console.
Sony also announced that PlayStation Plus subscriptions have increased more than 90 percent since the PlayStation 4 launched in November. Sony representatives are extremely thrilled with the success of PlayStation Plus and the success of the next-gen system.
Currently, worldwide demand for the PlayStation 4 appears to be exceeding that of Microsoft’s Xbox One. The Xbox One initially launched in 13 countries on November 22, 2013. Though Microsoft is selling well in the United States market, international gamers seem to prefer Sony’s newest next-gen console. Both the Xbox One and PS4 were welcome releases to the console wars and found instant success. Each of the two systems sold over 1 million systems within 24 hours after their official launches in November. Sony called the PS4 launch its most successful console release of all time, and Sony President thanked Sony fans at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) recently in Las Vegas.
