Sony has announced that global sales of the PlayStation 4 passed 50 million on 6 December, Reuters reported.
The figure refers to consoles sold to consumers and includes the recently-launched PlayStation 4 Pro.
Sales were helped by strong demand during the year-end holiday season, said Sony. The PlayStation 4 went on sale in late 2013 and has been Sony’s fastest-selling game console ever.
Regarding game sales, GameSpot reported that 369.6 million PS4 games had been sold at retail and through the PlayStation Store up to 4 December.
