In what is shaping up to be a historic year for gamers, I’m delighted to share an important new milestone with you. PS4’s North American debut on November 15th was PlayStation’s largest ever, with more than one million gamers picking up a PS4 in just 24 hours. Now, with PS4’s global launch expanding to a total of 32 countries worldwide, including Europe and Latin America, I’m proud to announce that more than 2.1 million PS4s have been sold.
It’s an impressive and record-setting accomplishment for our company and for our industry, and we couldn’t have done it without you. I want to personally thank PlayStation fans, both old and new, for your vote of confidence. The best part: the PS4 journey has just begun. In addition to an incredible lineup of PS4 games from the best developers in the world, we will continue to introduce valuable new features and services to PS4 in the months and years ahead.
While PS4’s capabilities will continue to evolve, our commitment to gamers and breakthrough entertainment remains steadfast. We believe that videogames represent the pinnacle of artistry and entertainment, and we will work tirelessly to make sure that PlayStation remains the best place to play.
Thank you for your passion and your support — we couldn’t have done this without you.

Any news on the USB headset support or YouTube? Are these going to eventually be working on the PS4?
Congratulations Sony. I had a feeling that when the first official announcement was made, this console would be a success.
Congrats, the system is great. Now put sony japan and Cerny to work on Knack 2, oh my i freaking love Knack, the sequel needs to be bigger, better and not that linear, combat is simple but great, make it a little open world, online co op and longer campaign.
Killzone Shadow Fall multiplayer is great as well, now bring the games. When is Driveclub supposed to be released? inFAMOUS Second Son? The Order 1886?
Glad to hear that and being part of your success. Congratulations! Now get back to work on that multimedia functions missing on ps4 and bring us some more games to play.
And we (Sony “people”) still haven’t seen the craziness that is going to ensue once it is released in Japan. I’m going to go WAY out on a limb and say sales will double once it’s released there. Maybe that’s a bit much. Either way, glad to see Sony, a company that I am completely loyal to in all Technology that they make (Computers, TVs, etc…) because of their consistent level of high-quality and customer support. Thank you Sony and glad to be a part of this record-setting endeavor.
Congratulations guys, when your a PS Fan always a PS Fan.
so when am i gonna be able to video chat on the ps4 because i have this camera with limited uses
Congratulations Sony! Long Live The King!!
Well I’m happy for you guys. My brother and I are enjoying the PS4, still enjoying our PS2 and PS3 as well as our PSPs and PSVita so it didn’t really surprise us you would come through for your community
YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES!!!!! Hail the Champion of gaming consoles!
Wow, amazing guys. Congratulations!
I’m looking forward to a nice big install base for PS4 to encourage excellent developer support.
Well, you surely dropped the ball when you didn’t manufacutre enoughtto meet the demands. Theres no reason that the shelves should be empty with a launch specifically set for the Holidays. There will be alot of disappointment on Christmas Morning.
Don’t suppose you guys could hound Ubisoft over AC4 PS4’s Ubisoft Server connectivity issue?
I’m locked out of half my games features and it isn’t reflecting well on my PSr.
Congrats Sony, u guys are awesome. Cant wait to see what other games u got in store for us. Awesome Start to a brand new console
Just wait till it gets released in Japan…..
Great job, Sony!
Now here comes the difficult part; maintaining a consistent message of quality and feature rich content for the consumer or potential consumer and keeping your mindful, supportive approach to the gaming and development communities.
Congratulations on a fantastic launch!
Short and Sweet
Dont Hold Back
Love my PS4
Thank you, Sony!!! I still have the PSOne, PS2, PS3 and love them all! What amazes me is that they’re all still working! All those good memories :’). PS4 will be the next milestone in console greatness for years to come.
My own June 10th Launch edition pre-order was a tiny part of that 2.1 mil number.
Greatness Awaited! lol I honestly thought it’d be way over 2 mil at this point though, but it just came out so xD
Congrats!!!! Will be buying one in March when inFamous comes out. Keep bringing those AAA games please!
While it may not be perfect (yet), the PS4 is still an amazing system that I love more every time I play it. Any word on when bluetooth headset and DLNA support will be added in. Those are really the only things that I want in the system at the moment. Oh, and to be able to organize my games into folders like I could on the PS3.
that’s great and all…. how’s local media playback coming along??
CONGRATULATIONS!!! And keep updating us with every of these milestones! I want to keep track of each one as PS4 breaks through and sits in its rightful throne! THE RETURN OF THE KING!
Gratz Sony, you made a hell of a good console, having nothing but fun since i bought it last week.
OH DUDE! WHEN IS PS4 GOING TO RELEASE IN INDIA AND MIDDLE EAST.I AM GREAT FAN OF IT AND WAITING EAGERLY!
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IT
Congrats Sony people!
This, by far is unprecedented sales record!
Congrats Sony! I just wish I could find a PS4 here around Montreal. It seems to be sold out everywhere!
I’m always glad to be one of the first gamers on the new Sony PlayStation platforms. It is such a privilege. PS are the best consoles ever. Period.
Loving the PS4, not liking the fact that Music Unlimited now requires credit card information for activation… Like, it’s flat-out making me angry.
Yes. greatness await.now is would be a matter of time until they put all these ps1, ps2, and ps3 classic on ps4 via gakai.i got this ideal how about you come with the year of ps1 next year and put all the ps1 games from best to worse then 2015 is the year of ps2 and 2016 the year of ps3 but just pick a date and month when those system launch before to celebrate it.by the way i love greatness await challenge in ps home i felt like i was in the e3 event.
Happy to be a Playstation fan since the PSone appeared. I’ve owned every console and handheld.
Congratulations Sony, awaitness has arrived PS4. Muchas felicidades a todo el equipo de Sony.
congrats to Sony! Those numbers will hopefully encourage more developers to start making next gen exclusive games since the install base is pretty big to start.
Again, thanks for the PS4. Overall I do love my console.
To dig further, it would be AWESOME if I could get Music Unlimited working without having to offer cc info… You know, cause you can actually listen to Music while you play games now. I didn’t really use Music Unlimited before since YouTube plays most music totally for free (which I’ll have to resort back to).
I have cc info to provide, but honestly just don’t want to (thinking of the infamous PS Hack from a while ago)… What’s the point of having PSN cards if you guys insist on cc information?
still can’t find one and why are they still doing pre orders for a machine that is out? I’m still waiting on the Games personally and I’m still not buying a VITA.
Return of the King
Thank you for developing my favorite gaming console of all time. So proud to have contributed to the PS4’s powerful launch!
You need to tell Best Buy to quit holding them for their own made up “events” and let customers buy them.
When is the PlayStation 4 going to launch in India…? :( Eagerly waiting… PS,PS2,PS3 waiting for PS4.
hum…… clearly deserved. I’ m glad you learned from the mistake you made with the PS3. Ps4 is clearly the best system to date.
Long live the The King.
Congratulations! I’ll certainly be getting one soon enough.
Hey Sony, how about instead of bragging about how many sales you made, you address the fact that once again your network has been compromised. How about some kind of a public announcement letting people know this has been going on since Thanksgiving with people having transfers made and used to buy FIFA points.
Apparently attempting to link to the article in the support forum will require my post to be approved, so if you doubt it, just go over there yourself. Almost 10 pages of people dealing with $150 in fradulent charges.
I’m one of the new millions of happy PS4 owners. Just got mine last friday when it came out in my region and had a great weekend playing Killzone, Resogun and ACIV. The console works even better than I expected.
Dat remote-play. Dat Dualshock 4. Dat Twitch streaming. Dat snapshot sharing. Dem automatic updates.
Just like with game features, the console features that I’m enjoying the most are the ones I didn’t even knew I wanted.
Also, Flower looks awesome at 1080p/60fps. Journey and Unfinished Swan would be great on PS4 as well *wink wink*.
Amazing sales figures compared to previous launches ( PS3 ) … Been waiting on the worldwide sales figures since the European launch 2.1 million is huge … To all the people saying sony should have made more / REALLY …
Sony put out 1.1 million more units then the Xbox1 … Back when pre-orders were being taken sony made the news For how long they were taking pre-orders … They put out an astounding amount of units for that time period … All I can say is u should have pre-ordered if it meant that much to you … Why blame SONY for your lack of insight?
I am so HAPPY SONY Has pulled together after the terrible PS3 Hardware fiasco.
Lets keep the momentum going!
I’m actually playing Knack as I stumbled across the news! Congrats. Tell EA to fix battlefield 4
And lol to you whiners who don’t have a PS4. You should know better by now, snooze u lose, period.
I read this in Andrew House’s voice, it was fantastic.
Well thats great! We mad you millions on console sales plus another 1.5 million on ps plus sold ok so wheres our 1 free ps4 game of appreciation? And im not talking about a game like flower or somthing weak like that im talking about a big title give us a big exclusive! Give us infamous for example then your showing some good appreciation dont just brag about the millions we! Us! The fans made you! I love playstation i always have always will even if they dont give us nothing big(infamous) for free lol hey its business right?
