Sid Shuman's Avatar + Posted by Sid Shuman on Apr 16, 2014 // Senior Manager, Social Media

Hi guys! I’ve got a quick update to share with you. Sony Computer Entertainment, Inc. just announced that PS4 has cumulatively sold through more than 7.0 million units globally as of April 6th, 2014. PS4 software sales are another bright spot, with more than 20.5 million copies sold at retail and PlayStation Store worldwide as of April 13th, 2014.

On behalf of the entire global team at PlayStation, I want to thank you for your unprecedented support and for making PS4 your next-generation console of choice. We couldn’t have done this without you! And please keep the feedback coming: we are listening.

On that note, we’ll have some great new details to share with you regarding our upcoming PS4 system software update very soon. Stay tuned! (update: kablammo)

Still need mp3 support and a better organized UI on PS4. Bring back the XMB if nothing else. Also, sun-account to master account upgrade needs to happen.

Congratulations for 7 Million sales number. Please bring more update patches. We need Ps4 theme edit, and PSN store that on PS4 is difficult for navigate.

Congrats Sony!

Keep up the good work. Please DON’T FOCUS TOO MUCH ON MORPHEUS and forget PS4 normal games. And bring back Syphon Filter for PS4. Gabe Logan NEEDS to come back. Also bring Patapon 4 Vita.

Thanks.

Thank you for an amazing product. If my house burned down and I could save one thing (not including people/animals) it would without any doubt be my PS4. I cannot thank you guys at Sony enough for the amazing experience I’ve had over these first 6 months. I can’t wait to see what is to come at E3 in 2 months (hopefully Naughty Dog announcing they’re making another Crash Bandicoot game)!

Please release more features on the PS4. It was very disappointing that the PS4 came out with LESS features than the PS3, even when some of them were basic like media playback from USB, etc. Don’t turn this into “I want cross-game chat” from last gen.

The PS4 is FANTASTIC, but it NEEDS much more features, so please at least bring back the features that are missing from the PS3.

+ “On that note, we’ll have some great new details to share with you regarding our upcoming PS4 system software update very soon. Stay tuned!” I CAN’T WAIT! ! ! :P :P :P Hopefully it will be tho the features that most of us want to(like MP3/DLNA/YouTube Gaming saving/Folders etc etc)

+ Vcheese on April 16th, 2014 at 4:12 pm said:

I’m very glad to hear this, congratulations sony! On the other hand i would like to buy another PS4 but please change your policies about accounts, it is really annoying to be changing primaries into secondaries and all that, just leave it like on PS3. There is also a lot of things that the PS4 does not do yet, when are you gonna let us listen to our cds or let us watch a 3d movie? just to name a few. Also want to say that what PS4 needs most is new games (not refering to indies) and less remastered old ones. Just my two cents

Lastly i want to make clear that i love Sony and Playstation and i’m sure that the best is still to come. :)
