To date, the PS4 has been hitting the sales targets, after it was finally launched in the U.K. Nov. 29. Sony seemed to even tallied the number of sales that the next-gen PS4 has received, since its first launch in North America.

According to Andrew House, president and group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, on PlayStation Blog Europe, the PS4 has exceeded the sales of 2.1 million. This is counting the expansion of the PS4 to 32 countries worldwide.

"The best part: the PS4 journey has just begun. In addition to an incredible line-up of PS4 games from the best developers in the world, we will continue to introduce valuable new features and services to PS4 in the months and years ahead," House in PlayStation Blog Europe said.

Part of this expansion has been the touted PS4 Gaikai technology, which has been said to release sometime in 2014.

PS4 And PS Vita Bundle Is Finally Out

After the official announcement that the Ultimate PS4 bundle, which includes the PS Vita in the mix for Remote Play, it seems that the offers are now finding its ways in several stores.

Tom's Hardware reported the rollout is not simultaneous across stores, as there are already offers for the PS4 and PS Vita bundle seen in some, while others may still be dealing with PS4 stock shortages to be able to offer any.

The tutorial for jailbreaking the PS4 was leaked online, but you wouldn't want to see how Sony reacts: Read here for more.

As previously reported, the PS4 Ultimate Bundle does not necessarily have to be a clear-set bundle. While there are reports that the new bundle will be priced somewhere below £500, it will not be the typical bundle similar to what had been released.

The PS4 and PS Vita bundle can come either as a soft bundle, discount, or add-on to your PS4 order at a particular price. Make sure to check with your favorite local retailer on how the PS4 and PS Vita bundle works with their system.

Original Shows Coming To the PlayStation Network

With something more to look forward to with Sony's gaming devices, entertainment may also be a blooming aspect for the company.

The Sixth Axis reported what has been previously thought as a new feature coming with PSNAdvertising.com back then may now come with another name, OnlineSPT.com.

Apparently,the rumoured Siren game is not really a Siren game for the PS4: Read more to find out what game it is.

The report said this may be tailored for advertisers who want to hinge on Sony's gaming devices. In addition to this, Sony may be following HBO in having original shows, which may be seen across genres.

"PlayStation Productions is dedicated to bringing high quality, professionally produced content to the PlayStation Network. Sponsorship and product integration opportunities are available upon request," according to a statement description in the Web site quoted by The Sixth Axis.

With this development, Sony may also be looking at entertainment as a branch of its gaming devices, with a potential that this won't just be made available for the PS4, but also the PS3 and other devices.
