Just last Friday, the PlayStation 4 launched across Europe, Latin America, and Australia, but Sony announced that the console has already sold over 2.1 million units worldwide.
PlayStation 4 launched in North America on 15th November and sold one million units within 24 hours. The console launched in Europe and Australasia on Friday, 29th November, adding 700,000 sales from both of those territories as of 1st December (including around 250,000 in the UK). In total PS4 is available in 32 countries.
Sony president and group CEO Andrew House writes, "Demand remains incredibly strong and continues to overwhelm the supply worldwide, but we are diligently working to meet those growing demands and to deliver additional PS4 units to our retail partners throughout the holiday season. We are extremely grateful for the passion of PlayStation fans and thank them for their continued support."
Sony has indicated to investors that it expects to sell three million PS4 units worldwide by the end of 2013, and five million by the end of its 2014 financial year.
While Microsoft stated that it set a record with a million units sold worldwide, there have been plenty of reports of Xbox One's still on shelves.
