10 Million PS4s Sold “is Well Beyond What We Hoped For,” says Sony

During an interview with Eurogamer at this year’s Gamescom in Germany, Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida revealed that the recent PlayStation 4 milestone of selling 10 million units worldwide “ is well beyond what [Sony] had hoped for.

The 10 million sell-through in the first nine months is well beyond what we had hoped for. As you know, we have struggled to keep up with demand of PS4 for so many months. It was hard to find and purchase PS4. Now we are able to supply units so in every territory I believe you can find PS4. So we just managed to catch up with demand, ” Yoshida told Eurogamer.

Yoshida went on to express just how surprised and overwhelmed the company is to have sold so many PlayStation 4 consoles so quickly. According to Yoshida, he’s a bit nervous about it, as he doesn’t exactly understand how that milestone was reached in a short period of time.

It’s just beyond our imagination. We are so happy. But I for one am a bit nervous because we do not completely understand what’s happening. You need to understand why your products are selling well so you can plan for the future, right? ” Yoshida continued.

It defied the conventional thinking. Lots of people thought the dedicated game hardware might not be needed going forward, but still lots of people are very excited. When you see the new games coming out and being announced this E3 and Gamescom, I think there’s a good enough reason for a gamer to believe this is something worth investing in, ” he added.

Sony announced the PlayStation 4’s 10 million milestone during this year’s Gamescom. Additionally, according to an NPD Group sales report, the PlayStation 4 is the top-selling console for the seventh month in a row.
