The PlayStation 4 has been selling at an extremely fast rate. Now that it’s out in Japan, Sony’s latest console has managed to reach 6 million sales.
And while Microsoft are doing a decent job of keeping up, despite having only released in limited territories, it seems as though Sony have already caught up with Nintendo despite their one year head start.
There are no exact figures, but given that Nintendo recently reached 5.86 million Wii U systems shipped, while the 6 million figure refers to PS4s sold through, Sony are definitely boosting ahead, at least until Mario Kart lands.
Other figures include that 90% of PS4s have been activated online, something which is seemingly becoming even more necessary as it becomes commonplace, and that PS4 users account for 20% of Twitch broadcasts, with 3.6 million shows so far. Beyond that, 100 million shares to Twitter and Facebook have occurred so far.
That’s really impressive, and sales can naturally only go up from here.
