PlayStation 4 hardware sales have sold through more than seven million units worldwide as of April 6, Sony Computer Entertainment announced.

Software sales for PlayStation 4 games have surpassed 20.5 million sales as of April 13.

Over 135 million shares have been captured via the PlayStation 4 “Share” feature. Over 4.9 million gameplay broadcasts have been shared via video streaming platforms. And there has been over 90 million spectate sessions.

PlayStation 4 is currently available in 72 countries and regions.

“The response from the global gaming community for PS4 has been overwhelming and we are truly humbled that gamers are selecting PS4 as their next generation console of choice,” said Sony Computer Entertainment President and Group CEO Andrew House.

“The PS4 journey has just begun, and although we are still facing difficulties keeping up with the strong demand worldwide, we remain steadfast in our commitment to meet the needs of our customers, and surpassing the wildest expectations of gamers by delivering new user experiences that inspire and engage. We look forward to unveiling many of these experiences to our fans in the coming months.”

Come on dude. You know X1 is probably between 4.5-5 Million by now due to Titanfall.

Great news for Sony! Take it while you can get it because it doesn't come your way much.

So you're just going to assume that the XboxOne hasn't sold a single console since Jan/Feb? K BRO.

Holy smokes. Coming off the PS3, that is actually goddamn crazy. I wish the console market was bigger than it is now like it was last gen, but the PS4 looks to kick ass anyways.

I haven't broadcasted yet but I do take a ton of pics, customized the button so I only have to tap it.

I probably won't broadcast till Dragon Age, probably going to do some boss tutorials. If I get into it enough then maybe Bound by Flame.

I'm expecting that Mario Kart 8 bundle to push a lot of Wii U consoles for a couple months. Wii U is at 6 Million or so, Sony might have a battle on their hands for a couple months. X1 is pretty much done until they price drop later this year since Titanfall hype is dwindling.

I put it together. Sony did this a day early as a preemptive move to hide some of the NPD fallout tomorrow.

I don't see the point in DC. Microsoft pretty much outsold them with all the Titanfall bundles and retailer price drops for almost the entire month of March. I'd bet Sony is ahead worldwide by 2 million+ consoles so it doesn't really matter.

Exactly and worldwide sales are more important. It will be interesting to see how much X1 lead March by. though since PS4 pretty much got almost 1 Million in March worldwide.

Lol all Dem cows dropping the PS3 like a brick for the PS4 while most Xbox fans are still enjoying the 360. Just wait for the sales to drop off the cliff once the hard core cows got the PS4.

Seriously though if PS4 wins March NPD when Xbone has been having Retail price cuts across the board to get rid of all the dusty Xbone pyramids complete with free packet in Titanfall, their biggest game of the year, holy hell The 'spot will be delightful 2moro. They need a miracle though, Xbox got NPD on lock this month it had as much help as a console could get to sell their march game.
