Sony has officially announced that the PlayStation 4 has sold 2.1 million units worldwide since launching in North America on November 15.

“PS4′s North American debut on November 15th was PlayStation’s largest ever, with more than one million gamers picking up a PS4 in just 24 hours,” Sony Computer Entertainment president and group CEO Andrew House said. ”Now, with PS4′s global launch expanding to a total of 32 countries worldwide, including Europe and Latin America, I’m proud to announce that more than 2.1 million PS4s have been sold.

“I want to personally thank PlayStation fans, both old and new, for your vote of confidence. The best part: the PS4 journey has just begun. In addition to an incredible lineup of PS4 games from the best developers in the world, we will continue to introduce valuable new features and services to PS4 in the months and years ahead.

“While PS4′s capabilities will continue to evolve, our commitment to gamers and breakthrough entertainment remains steadfast. We believe that video games represent the pinnacle of artistry and entertainment, and we will work tirelessly to make sure that PlayStation remains the best place to play.”

The PlayStation 4 became the fastest selling console in UK history over the weekend, moving 250,000 units in just 48 hours–beating the original record of 180,000 set by the PSP eight years ago.
