"I don't think there's a better time to buy into PlayStation--PS4 particularly," he said. "Our installed base now is well over 25 million. That gives us a massive community of gamers, supported by a lot of new community features. We've got great games out there, more coming through. We're looking forward to 2016, it's an exciting time."

He did not announce an exact figure, but that's likely to come soon, as Sony's next earnings report is scheduled for October 29. The company typically updates sales figures during those events. As of June 30, the PS4 had shipped 25.3 million units.
