A couple days ago, VGChartz had the PlayStation 4 at 5.2 million sales worldwide .
Now, it's official: Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCE) has announced that the PS4 has cumulatively sold through more than 5.3 million units globally. This number is accurate as of February 8, 2014. Said President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, Andrew House:
"I am thrilled that so many customers around the globe have continued to select PS4 as the best place to play throughout and beyond the holiday season. We are delighted that according to the NPD Group's latest data, PS4 was January's top-selling console in the United States. The PS4 system's momentum just keeps growing stronger, and we are extremely grateful for the continued passion and support of PlayStation® fans. February 22 sees the launch of PS4 in Japan, and I'm looking forward to Japanese fans sharing the excitement of the deep social capabilities and entertainment experiences only possible on PS4."
Yep, the PS4 will launch in Japan next week, and that should really boost the global sales tally. Don't forget that, according to Sony, the PS4 was not only the top-selling console in the US in January, it "nearly doubled" the sales of the Xbox One. Oh, and don't forget that the PS4 exclusive, inFamous: Second Son , drops next month!
