With the holidays incoming, Sony has picked today to reveal that it has now sold more than 30 million PlayStation 4 consoles to date — over 30.2 million to be precise — putting it well ahead of its rivals in the video games race.
The announcement comes ahead of this year’s Black Friday sale, for which Sony is offering a $300 PS4 bundle with Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection in the U.S.. (The bundle is $369.99 CAD in Canada, while there are also other deals for fans in Europe.)
Sony, which recently discounted the PS4 to $349, reached 20 million sales in March, meaning that it clocked 10 million sales in just eight months. That’s a fairly impressive average of more than 1.2 million per month.
Competition-wise, Microsoft’s most recent announcement on Xbox One numbers came one year ago when the console reached 10 million units sold. VGChartz, which keeps an unofficial count of sales, puts the total number of Xbox One units shifted to date at 15.6 million units, while Nintendo is estimated to have sold close to 11 million Wii Us.
