Officials from Sony have announced that the combined shipments of the original PlayStation and PS one have reached 100 million units. Shipments of PlayStation software (almost all of which is compatible with the PlayStation 2) has now reached over 949 million units. In 2003 the PS one shipped more than 3.31 million units and 32 million games, and indeed in Japan at least it still regularly outsells the Xbox. The breakdown by territory is as follows: Japan (including 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) By comparison the PlayStation 2 has shipped more than 70 million consoles and 572 million games, which puts it ahead of the first PlayStation at the same stage in its life. By comparison the Xbox has sold 14 million units world-wide and the GameCube 14.8 million. Source: Sony
