PS4 dominates worldwide reach versus Xbox One

Sony has announced that as of 13 December, the Playstation 4 is available in 48 countries around the world, just in time for the holiday season. This is versus the 13 countries that Xbox One has reached.

Sony’s Fredd Dutton announced on  the Playstation Blog that the console was launched in sixteen countries, namely Bolivia, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Uruguay, Venezuela, Czech Republic, Greece, Slovakia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and South Africa.

“PlayStation 4 has been in the hands of gamers in much of Europe and Australasia since 29th November, and today we’re really happy to welcome more countries into the fold. This brings the total number of countries in which PS4 is available to 48, with more to follow later this year and into early 2014,” Dutton wrote.

“If you’re still waiting, thank you so much for your patience, we are doing our upmost to ensure availability in your region as soon as possible. To all those who are picking up a PS4 today, we hope you have a fantastic time with the system. As announced earlier this month, there are over 2.1 million players waiting to show you the ropes, and there are more than 20 titles for you to choose from on day one. Remember to share your PS4 experiences with us via #PS4Share,” he also added.
