PlayStation passes the 100 million mark: Sony has shipped 100 million PlayStations. That's pretty impressive.



Maybe they're just bragging, but on May 18, 2004 Sony shipped the 100 millionth PlayStation. The system that launched video games into the mainstream and helped bring 3D gaming to the world has over 7300 titles in it's game library as of March 2004. Those titles for accounted for shipments of over 949 million copies. Sony has also revealed the territorial breakdown of the system shipments:


  • Asia
    20.72 million units (launch date: December 3, 1994)


  • North America
    39.67 million units (launch date: September 9, 1995)


  • Europe/PAL
    39.61 million units (launch date: September 29, 1995)

    Sony also revealed numbers that show the PlayStation 2 is well on it's way to joining the 100 million club. As of March 2004, the PS2 has shipped over 70 million systems and 572 million games.

    For all you Sony fanboys out there, today is a good day. For all you non-numbers geeks, I'm sorry you had to read this. And for everyone else, bask in the glory of what is one of the greatest achievements in the business world.
