The Sony PlayStation 4 clearly bested many people’s lists of things to get this winter.
At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the organization disclosed that it sold 5.7 million PS4 units aimed the Christmas season. That conveys the total to 35.9 million units sold since launch.
“Let me put that into Las Vegas perspective,” Sony CEO Kaz Hirai said in front of an audience. “I did the math, and currently there is one slot machine for every 8 residents here in Las Vegas. And that’s a whole lot of gaming. But 35.9 million units… that would translate to roughly 59 PS4 units for every resident of Las Vegas. And that my friends, is seriously a lot of gaming!”
Then again, as awesome as that detail might sound, it may not really be as high a sales figure as what Sony has found before.
In 2014, the organization sold 7.5 million units around the world.
Business Insider contacted with Sony to specify whether the detail it shared at CES was a worldwide or US figure.
Either way, the PlayStation 4 is by all means one of the best pieces of technology Sony has ever produced, and with the recent reductions in price, more people deserve to have one of these great pieces of tech.
