Sony: PS4 sales surpass 7 million units worldwide

Sony continues to issue updates about its overall sales for the PlayStation 4 console. Today, the company said that worldwide, its newest home game console has sold over 7 million units since it launched on November 15th to April 6th.

Sony's press release comes about six weeks after the company announced PS4 worldwide sales had exceeded the 6 million mark. The company also announced today that over 20.5 million copies of PS4 games have been sold, either as physical copies or via download, since the launch.

Microsoft has yet to offer up a worldwide sales update for its rival Xbox One since early January, when the company said that over three million units were sold since its launch on November 22nd. The last concrete sales numbers from the company came in March, when it said that 258,000 Xbox One units were sold in the U.S. in February.

Thursday, the NPD Group is slated to offer information about console software and hardware sales in the U.S. in March. It will be interesting to see if the double impact of the launch of Titanfall combined with a $50 price cut from some major retailers will give a boost to Xbox One sales.
