Neuer Meilenstein für Sony Computer Entertainment

PlayStation®4 knackt die Millionen-Marke in Deutschland

Neu-Isenburg, 18. November 2014.
Sony Computer Entertainment Deutschland gibt heute bekannt, dass in Deutschland bereits über 1.000.000 PlayStation®4-Systeme verkauft wurden. Der Meilenstein wurde am 21. Oktober 2014 erreicht. Mit dieser beeindruckenden Zahl kann PS4™ weniger als ein Jahr nach dem offiziellen Verkaufsstart die enorme Beliebtheit bei der Gaming-Community einmal mehr unterstreichen. Durch den herausragenden Erfolg sichert sich die weltweit bereits über zehn (!) Millionen Mal verkaufte Next-Gen-Plattform nicht nur die „Pole-Position“ auf dem deutschen Konsolen-Markt, sondern ist auch wesentlich für dessen kontinuierliches Wachstum verantwortlich.

Happy more people get to play Knack. Announce the sequel already! (That is Knack they're talking about in the press release right? Lol)

Doesn't sound like that much to me? It already sold more than that in the UK, which has a way smaller population, and is seeing better XBO sales, so stiffer competition. Is gaming not a big deal in Germany?

Awesome! So Sony is EU leader without competition and i just hope EU PSN allows discount coupons often with their new option from PSN store which allows discount code to apply so we can get the prices close to US at least sometimes.

Germany is the biggest market in mainland EU and I think it has a bigger revenue than the UK last year. Systemwise it's still widely PC land but consoles are rising. 1 million sold in less than a year is pretty amazing here. Last numbers I heard, Xbone was somewhere around 200-260k. WiiU around 330k. Those where around summer.

Nice. Keep em coming Sony. Build that install base. The quicker we rid ourselves of cross gen games, the better.
