Sony New Zealand has announced that the PlayStation brand is the best selling video games entity in the country.

For the third straight year running, the PlayStation 3 console was the best selling console in the country in 2013. The PlayStation 4 sold very well when it launched in late November last year to become the best selling next-generation console.

“It has been an enormous 12 months for PlayStation in New Zealand,” says David Hine, Sales and Marketing Director, Sony Computer Entertainment New Zealand.

“These results in 2013 not only truly underpin New Zealand as a PlayStation Nation, but also the strength of the individual platforms we have.

“For PS3 to perform so well, nearly seven years after its launch, is testament to the features, entertainment services and quality gaming titles delivered throughout its lifecycle and in 2013.

“The arrival of PS4 at the end of 2013 has further strengthened PlayStation’s position with Kiwi gamers. PS4 has been a phenomenal success in New Zealand; a story that is replicated around the globe. As the world’s most powerful home console, PS4 clearly represents the next generation in gaming. It is the best place to play.”

According to Hine, 2013 was a huge year as a whole for PlayStation – Knack and Killzone: Shadow Fall were popular games for the PlayStation 4 while the PlayStation 3 had even bigger games such as Gran Turismo 6 and the award winning The Last of Us just to name a few.
