Sony has had quite a bit of information to share at CES 2014 in Las Vegas this year. Along with the announcement of the PlayStation Now service, Sony has disclosed sales figures from the PlayStation 4 up until the end of 2013. According to CEO Andrew House, the PS4 has sold 4.2 million copies as of December 28th. These figures mark the most successful launch of a console, ever. Microsoft has reported sales of 3 million as of December 31st. The scary thing? The PlayStation 4 hasn't even launched in, arguably, its biggest market yet. Japan. This will happen in February.
