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)

I bought my ps4 shortly after release and i think it currently is the second best console ever, the best one in history is playstation vita though. it is a shame vita hardware dosent sell well, it really should sell more. what vita need is an agresive publicity campaign that shows all the amazing games it have, necause it dosent matter how many awesome game it gets, if people dont know about them they wont be able to buy them.

Congrats on the milestone!

Just keep on making stuff that appeals to video game enthusiasts and the audience comes naturally; I myself am excited for Morpheus.

PS+ pickings are rather slim, as I don’t really have enough money to get a game every time one comes out, so I have to rely on it for what I play in a week more often than not., but that’s my only beef with the system so far. Keep it up!

Sum-Mischief said:

April 16th, 5:56 pm

God-Of-Lyf said:

April 16th, 5:57 pm

April 16th, 6:00 pm

Can we get customization to the user interface? Also a youtube app?And the ability to play media from an external hard drive? thanks and congrats on the 7million!

Hey Sony.
It would be great to have a simultaneous launch of the PS Now service in both US and Canada.
Start applying now with the CRTC to get this thing up and running by the end of the year. (Because they are slow to get new applications up and running here)

Also, you should hire more people to get updates faster.
I have a few suggestions to improve the overall look of the UI as well.
It would really make it more intuitive.

congratulations! from a proud user of PlayStation since the beginning!!

Jobocan said:

April 16th, 6:28 pm

7 million consoles sold, no games worth playing…. Wouldn’t call this a good thing.

mastorofpuppetz said:

April 16th, 6:37 pm

This is ridiculous, why can’t sony just detail what is coming in the new update? Talk about slow and poor communication. MS detailes every month what new features are coming and even have a beta program. Sony OS updates and communication leave a lot to be desired

mastorofpuppetz said:

April 16th, 6:37 pm

@84, there are many great game son PS4, compared to ps3 it’s library is way better at the same time in it’s life cycle.

mastorofpuppetz said:

April 16th, 6:39 pm

People saying there are no games..there are 50 already ff14 just launched in MAy is MLb the SHow, Daylight, Watch dogs, just in the next few weeks. First console launch? It takes awhile for the library to grow, compared to ps3 ps4 has way more games at the same point in its life.

Return of the king.

Nemisis666 said:

April 16th, 6:51 pm

Congratulations maybe some new stuff is in order? Perhaps giving out a free title? Killzone maybe? Maybe a free month of ps+ or credits added to ps4 accounts?
My main concern honestly is firmware features.
MP3 support
DLNA support
Blu tooth headset support
Ps now full access beta?!

mastorofpuppetz said:

April 16th, 6:56 pm

@89 exactly, Sony did a lot right with ps4, but right now the biggest flaw is the OS feature set needs improving a lot, and the speed at which sony is moving on this.

Nemisis666 said:

April 16th, 7:03 pm

Its unfortunate cause I absolutely love my ps4 but I hate that my 8 year old ps3 has so much more basic features that are all missing and with no new update on anything promised at launch its concerning. They need to take our words more seriously maybe keep us out of the dark more.

I have got to say sony this has been one of the greatest gaming consoles that you guys have ever came up with it’s super sleek and very fast and the graphics are to die for I’m a really huge fan of sony got myself almost all of your consoles except the psone but you guys are awesome and can’t wait for the new system software update. Thank you sid and the sony team for giving us the right choice of console ……………………………………..LONG LIVE SONY FOREVER

That’s incredible!! Congratulations, I can’t wait to finally get my PS4!!

Hooligantuan said:

Loving the PS4!

Need more control over the media bar content!

Need to be able to offload screenshots and video via USB!

Need MP3 support! Nobody missed that the PS4 failed to support MP3s concurrently with a massive push for the Music Unlimited service!

Again, loving the PS4! Promise! Keep improving, though!

Congratulations on all of your success so far. I’m pretty confident that your success will continue for quite some time. Thank you for making, in my opinion, the best place to game in the newest generation of consoles. And I will add to your success whenever I gather up the money to purchase a PS4 of my own. Keep up the good work!
