With the NPD having reported their December 2014 numbers, Sony issued a statement shortly afterwards, confirming that it was not only the best-selling console in the US during all of 2014, but globally as well. Since launch in November 2013, the PS4 has 18.5 million units to consumers, with nearly 82 million pieces of software sold through retail and digital stores.
Here’s what Sony had to say about the PS4’s impressive 2014:
PlayStation 4 was the top selling console in the U.S. and globally in 2014. And [it is] the fastest selling console in PlayStation history with 18.5 million sold through after just 14 months in the market. We are humbled by this success and want to thank gamers worldwide for helping us achieve holiday sales of more than 4.1 million across 123 countries and regions. We are looking forward to another momentous year in 2015 and bringing an epic line up of titles to PlayStation fans around the world.
When asked, Sony declined to comment on whether they’d be lowering the PS4’s price to match the $349 price of the Xbox One.
Do you expect to see the PS4 on top when 2015’s over?
