Despite the fact that the PS4 NEO appears to be on the horizon, Sony is making it quite clear that the PlayStation 4 console is doing quite well on its own.
As of May 22, the console has sold more than 40 million units since its launch in November 2013, Sony said in a press release. That's a lot of software sales, almost 271 million units from internal development and 3rd party sources. Of recent note, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End did quite well, amassing more than 2.7 million units in the first week.
“We are truly grateful for the enormous support from our fans and partners across the globe, which helped us achieve this significant milestone in such a short span of time,” said Andrew House, President and Global CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, in his obligatory comment for the press release. “We will strive to deliver even more exciting gaming experiences to our users, further driving the momentum and accelerating the expansion of the PS4 platform and its business this fiscal year by offering an unparalleled line-up of games, bringing our virtual reality system, PlayStation VR, to market and providing ground-breaking features and network services.”
Sony noted several games on the horizon that should continue to push PS4 sales, among them Final Fantasy XV, Nioh, Gran Turismo Sport, and The Last Guardian, as well as indies Jotun and Push Me Pull You.
