PS4 sales top 20.2 million units worldwide

Sony has sold more than 20.2 million PlayStation 4 consoles, the company announced today during the 2015 Game Developers Conference.

The figure is true as of March 1, and applies to units sold through to consumers. The system “continues to demonstrate the fastest and strongest growth in PlayStation hardware history,” said Sony in a press release today.

Sony’s previous PS4 update came in January, when the company said global sales of the console had topped 18.5 million units by Jan. 4 — 4.1 million of which had been sold since Nov. 23, 2014.

“We are so grateful for the enormous support from PlayStation fans worldwide, and we are truly humbled that gamers around the globe have continued to select PS4 as the best place to play,” said Andrew House, president and global CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, in a prepared statement today.
