Sony confirmed it's launched the PlayStation 4 in 15 more countries today, taking the total number of markets it's now available in to 48. As of today, there are new PS4 owners in the Czech Republic, Greece, Slovakia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, South Africa, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela, all of them trying to work out where the hell the power button is.

Sony will be crossing fingers and toes that those 15 extra markets help boost the PS4 to its end-of-year target of 3 million sales. The PS4 surpassed the 2.1 million mark on December 1, with 1 million sold on its first day of availability in North America, and 700,000 across the launch weekends in Europe and Australasia.
