A ‘remastered’ version of Naughty Dog’s critical and commercial smash The Last of Us goes next-gen this summer for $60.
In a statement early Tuesday, Sony announced that sales of their flagship next-gen console have topped 5.3 million units worldwide through February 8. That’s significantly ahead of schedule, as the company was predicting sales of 5 million by the end of March 2014.
Sony and Microsoft released their long-awaited next generation systems. Rockstar Games didn’t just break records, it blew them to smithereens. Players saw tons of new avenues open up, while an increasingly connected world brought plenty of headaches.
The November sales of both systems topped not only the first month of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 – but sold more units than their predecessors did in their first three to four months following their launches, according to BMO Capital Markets analyst Edward Williams.
According to Sony, the system has sold through 2.1 million units just two weeks after hitting shelves, a record-setting worldwide mark for the PlayStation brand. That follows the launch of the next-generation console in Europe, Australasia (Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea and other neighboring islands) and Latin America.
In its first 24 hours of availability, the PlayStation 4 sold more than 1 million units in North America. That’s nearly five times the number of PlayStation 3 units the company sold in that system’s first two weeks on shelves.
Sony and Naughty Dog announced plans for a new Uncharted game that will run on the PlayStation 4 during last night’s PS4 All Access Launch Event on Spike TV.

A tweet from Shuhei Yoshida, president of PlayStation Worldwide Studios, confirmed the company was looking into reports that there were hardware issues with the new console.
