PlayStation Nation: Thank you!
We just announced that the PlayStation 4 has sold through more than 10 million units worldwide –- and more than 30 million PS4 games have been sold –- since its launch less than nine months ago. It’s a remarkable milestone that reinforces PS4’s record-breaking pace and the movement it has created among players globally in defining next generation gaming.
On behalf of our entire team, I want to thank you for your support and passion. You’re the reason that PS4 is the #1 next generation console in the world and we’re grateful for your continued enthusiasm and for always pushing us to new heights.
Rest assured that the PS4 journey has just begun, and we’ll continue the momentum this holiday season with blockbuster titles, including Destiny, DRIVECLUB, Grand Theft Auto V, inFAMOUS First Light, Little Big Planet 3, and NBA 2K15, and innovative titles including Grim Fandango, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number and Minecraft.
In addition to our expanding gaming library, we’ll also continue to enhance the PS4 system’s network feature to offered more breakthrough gaming experiences. Upcoming features include the ability to upload game footage directly to YouTube, and also “Share Play,” a new feature that allows players to invite a friend to a game—even when they don’t own a copy of it.
I look forward to sharing more details about new games and features coming to PS4 that clearly demonstrate why PlayStation is the best place to play.
Now that’s a lot of blue boxes! Congrats on the milestone, Sony!
