In a similar turn of events that happened in 2014 when the PlayStation 4's sales were surpassing the company's expectations, Sony supremo Shuhei Yoshida acknowledged the development, but also added that his team could not quite figure out the reasons, due to which the sales exceeded expectations. This was also reported on Playstation Lifestyle. Meanwhile, Gara who gave a detailed statement during an interview with MCV(Market For Computer and Video Games) UK said that the excellent sales figure could be because of the game's potential, as well as the company's decision to introduce it at the right time. He also went on to add that the game was unique and helped in acting as a platform differentiator for Sony.

During his interview with MCV, Gara confirmed that Sony had sold more than 2 million PS4's in United Kingdom. Moving on to the developments of 2015, he said that this was a crucial year where Sony is looking to target the younger audience through its gaming platform, using games like FIFA where the age barrier is not at all valid.
