Despite being released late last year, the PlayStation 4 has now been confirmed to have sold 6 million units worldwide. Thanks to the recent launch in Japan, the sales have been boosted a large margin, and the 6 million sales is a huge milestone for Sony.
Sony have pushed for content sharing on the PlayStation 4, SOE's vice president of marketing, John Koller, revealed that it's sharing features have been widely accepted. "There have now been more than 3.6 million live broadcasts, and more than 56 million spectate sessions on PS4 through Twitch and Ustream," John Koller revealed in a blog post.
According to Koller, A massive 20 percent of daily broadcasters are using the PlayStation 4 as their platform, which is pretty massive considering the PS4 hasn't even been out that for that long, and the new sharing features have made the PlayStation 4 a very sociable console.
In comparison to the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4 is outperforming in sales by over 50%. According to Complex, the Xbox One has only sold 3.9 millions units, which, still impressive, isn't quite as much as Sony's 6 million sold units.
So far, though, the game library for both consoles are fairly limited, so we'll have to see how each console fairs later on in the year, when hopefully more new video game titles will be revealed. We already have quite a big roster planned for both consoles, but if Sony wants to keep the reins firmly in their hands, then they are going to have some pretty impressive exclusives planned for the PS4.
