Since the system's launch in North America on Nov. 15, Sony has sold more than 2.1 million PlayStation 4 consoles, according to an update from Sony Computer Entertainment president and group CEO Andrew House.
With the console's launch in 32 countries across the Americas, Australia and Europe, the PS4's install base has grown from one million on launch day, to more than 2.1 million — a new record for the company, House said.
"It's an impressive and record-setting accomplishment for our company and for our industry, and we couldn't have done it without you," House wrote. "I want to personally thank PlayStation fans, both old and new, for your vote of confidence. The best part: the PS4 journey has just begun. In addition to an incredible lineup of PS4 games from the best developers in the world, we will continue to introduce valuable new features and services to PS4 in the months and years ahead."
Sony released the PS4 in select European territories on Nov. 29. The company's chief console competitor, Microsoft, announced it had sold more than one million Xbox One consoles in the first 24 hours of the system's availability on Nov. 22.
