"I’m proud to announce that more than 2.1 million PS4s have been sold," Andrew House, President and Group CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment, said in a statement.
The European launch of the PS4 on Friday, Nov. 29 saw more than 700,000 units sold in that region which means that approximately 1.4 million have been sold in North America since the next-gen console launched here on Nov. 29.
Sony was quick to announce that the console sold more than 1 million units at its North American launch but today's announcement hints at the console's supply constraints. The PS4 was outsold in the United States on Black Friday by the Xbox One according to an InfoGraph report but it appears that is because Sony was focusing its allocation on Europe.
Still, the PS4 appears to be well on the way of achieving the 3 million consoles sold by the end of the year forecast from Piper Jaffray as well as Sony's own goal of 5 million consoles sold by the end of March 2014.
