Yesterday we said this was bound to happen. We’ve just been sent a press release stating that SCE president Andrew House has announced that Sony has sold 4.2 million PlayStation 4 consoles since the hardware launched in November 2013. This figure is up to and including the 28th of December 2013, which was probably added in seeing as Microsoft made a big deal of their 3 million Xbox Ones sold before the end of 2013. The more things change, right? Additionally, Sony has sold 9.7 million pieces of PlayStation 4 software; a figure that represents both physical and digital purchases.
