Sony has today announced that its current-gen gaming console, the PlayStation 4, has now sold over 30-million units worldwide.

Although we can’t compare this number to the Xbox One as Microsoft has resisted revealing sales numbers for the console, we can state that this compares to just over 10-million sales reached for the Nintendo Wii U since September 2015.

The official sales figure for the PlayStation 4 is 30.2-million.

“We are sincerely grateful that gamers across the globe have continued to choose PS4 as the best place to play since launch two years ago,” Sony Entertainment’s global CEO Andrew House noted in a press release.

“We are committed to bringing engaging games and entertainment services to users worldwide. Thanks to the support of our partners, PS4 continues to be the premier platform for game and interactive entertainment innovation.”

The next year for all consoles however looks bright, with a number of exclusives arriving on all platforms, but it’s difficult to see any of Sony’s rivals catching up.
