Sony has revealed that it has sold over 35.9 million units worldwide of its PlayStation 4 (PS4) consoles. It also added that it saw as many as 5.7 million units being sold during the Holiday season.
The Verge reported that these numbers from Sony reflect the actual numbers of the units sold. It was also noted that Sony managed to sell over 5.7 million units even though it had very few exclusive video games in comparison with Microsoft's Xbox One during the Holiday season.
PS4 exclusives for 2016 are promising. The console has games like Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, The Last Guardian, Horizon Zero Dawn and a new Hot Shots Gold game. Apart from this, there are other timed or exclusive PS4 games for 2016, like No Man's Sky, Street Fighter 5, Gran Turismo Sport and others.
Sony has not revealed the sales of PS3 and PS Vita units, nor which of the games sold the most.
"We are absolutely delighted that so many customers have selected PS4 as the best place to play throughout this holiday season and that the PS4 community is growing more than ever," Andrew House, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, was quoted by GameSpot as saying in a statement.
"We remain steadfast in our commitment to deliver innovative entertainment experiences," he added.
