Sony’s CEO Kazuo Hirai has revealed that the company has sold 53.4 million PS4s over the console’s lifespan. For what it’s worth, the PS3 sold more than 80 million consoles worldwide as of November 2013. Let’s not be surprised to see the PS4 surpass the PS3 numbers.

In a little less than a month, the company has sold 3.4 million PS4 consoles. It’s no mean feat considering it already had strong sales leading upto the holiday season and the Xbox One S receiving drastic price cuts in primary markets like the US and UK. PS4 sales topped 6.2 million units from November 21 to January 1. PS4 software sale for the same period passed 50.4 million units.

Uncharted 4
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has reached 8.7 million total copies sold worldwide across digital and retail, as of December 21, so it may have increased since then. Hirai however didn’t, mention how much of these sales could be attributed to the PS4 Pro or PS4 Slim though he did say that PS VR is selling well, without providing figures, NDTV news reports. Quite a few regions don’t have the PS4 Pro, PS4 Slim or the PS VR just as yet. Sony hasn’t mentioned when the consoles will be available globally.
