Sony has sold away 50 million PlayStation 4 Units since its initial Launch
 

Sony has recently shared with the world its success of the Play Station 4. This powerful console was initially launched back in November 2013.reports show that the Japanese company has managed to sell 40 million units all across the globe. However in the latest announcement by Sony it has confirmed that the company has crossed the 50 million milestones for the sales of PS4.

The sale number includes the sales for PlayStation Slim 4 and 4K Play station 4 Pro. The PS4 has been a favourite for Consumers since its launch in November. The product had a humble start with the original PS4 hardware which was redesigned in to the PlayStation 4 Slim in August this year. This was further enhanced in to the very powerful 4k gaming capable Play Station Pro launched only last month.

The 50 million mark includes all the models of the PS4. The company has also attributed the ‘Black Friday sales’ to have contributed in this historical sales mark. We would certainly like to know how many devices Sony has sold since the hardware was launched three years ago. But it would be even more interesting to compare the sales with it biggest rival Microsoft’s Xbox One. Microsoft has not released the details of its sales regarding the Xbox One and Xbox S.

However we do have an insight thanks to NPD as to how the Xbox is performing in terms of sales in comparison to the PS4 in the last few months. It is evident that the introduction of the smaller Xbox One S model has contributed in much of the Microsoft sales but the PS4 still remains supreme. The Black Friday and Cyber Monday have been kind to Sony but we should not forget the holiday season is not yet over.

Just as the New Year approaches it is likely that shoppers opt for the PS4 as a gift and the sales numbers are all bound to increase. Sony is certainly ahead in sales but will Microsoft’s Project Scorpion be able to turn around the results next year.
