Sony passes 7 million PlayStation 4 units sold globally

Sony announced on Wednesday that it has sold over 7 million PlayStation 4 consoles as of April 6th. That’s counting sell-through to consumers too, not just channel inventory.

Meanwhile, PS4 game sales have passed 20.5 million across retail and digital outlets.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

In February, Sony passed the 5 million mark. Just last week, Sony revealed that inFamous Second Son, one of the most highly-anticipated games from the PS4 launch window, had sold 1 million copies in just over a week.

Microsoft hasn’t shared any recent figures for Xbox One sales, though sales presumably got a bump with the release of first-person shooter blockbuster Titanfall last month.
