Sony’s PlayStation 4 console is now available in a whopping 48 countries worldwide thanks to today’s launch of the console in a further 12 territories.
Sony has announced the span of its release today alongside the release of the PS4 console in 12 new countries including the Czech Republic, Hungary, Greece, Slovakia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and South Africa.
This now takes Sony’s release tally up to 48 since the console’s initial launch in the US on November 15th with the UK and Australia following 2 weeks later with a November 29th release date.
Sony has already announced that it has sold some 2.1 million consoles since its launch in North America, so the 12 extra countries on today’s list will surely see the consoles sales rise even more, especially as we head into the festive season.
On the other side of the next-gen console coin, the Xbox One is somewhat flagging behind Sony with only 13 countries currently able to buy the Xbox One console. However, Microsoft is seeing similar levels of sales with over 2 million units shipped, so we are sure they wont be too upset with a lower number of release countries.
