Nearly a month has passed since the PS4 Pro made its debut. The new system is Sony’s mid-generation upgrade to its original PS4, which launched in 2013. Many are very interested in PS4 Pro sales figures, but until now, there has yet to be any official word given on how it is performing.

Sony is seeing positive sales results from PlayStation VR and apparently the same is true of PS4 Pro. Sony executive Shuhei Yoshida spoke about how PS4 Pro has been selling since its November launch.

“Yes, it’s selling very well. We were hoping that people who purchased a PS4 day one would upgrade to PS4 Pro, and people who have a 4K TV would see it as their console of choice.

“We need more time to analyze the situation, but it seems that more people who are buying PS4 for the first time are choosing PS4 Pro. I think that’s driving a larger demand than we had anticipated. In many markets it’s sold out and hard to find,” Yoshida told DigitalSpy.

Many retailers across the world have been selling out of PS4 Pro systems. The hardware is clearly in demand, but to what extent is what is unknown.

Assuming manufacturing of the Pro was at the quantity that the original PS4 received in 2013, then PS4 Pro is selling incredibly well. On the other hand, if less systems were manufactured, then PS4 Pro selling out is less impressive.

Until Dec. 29, Sony is selling its base PS4 bundle with Uncharted 4 for $249.99. Gamers who wish to adopt will receive the slim version of PS4. Horizon Zero Dawn will be the next major game to release from Sony. The game will debut on Feb. 28, 2017 for PS4.
