The lights are on
Sony has announced that over 7 million PlayStation 4 units have been sold since the console first launched on November 15, 2013. Software sales are beyond 20.5 million units, putting average attach rate at almost three games per console owner.
The news comes on the eve of the March NPD report, which will likely include Titanfall, Infamous: Second Son (over 1 million sold in the first nine days), Dark Souls II, and Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls. Sony announced that it had crossed the 6 million threshold at the start of March.
