Sony announced during its first quarter financial results overnight that PlayStation 4 shipments have topped 82.2 million units worldwide.

The three-month period ended June 30 saw 3.2 million PS4s shipped to retailers, although the figured dipped by 100,000 year-on-year. Still, Sony's flagship tellybox is nearly five-years-old, so that's not really surprising.

More interestingly, it seems that PS4 has now surpassed its predecessor in terms of worldwide shipments.

Sony last updated its figures for PS3 in November 2013, where the console stood at 80 million units; while it's obviously sold more since then, we still don't have anything to tell us that it's ahead of PS4 right now.

Elsewhere, Sony confirmed that PlayStation Plus memberships have declined from 34.2 million in March to 33.9 million as of June 30. 

The PS4 launched in the US and UK in November 2013 and arrived in Japan the following February.

Back in April, Sony confirmed that 79 million PS4s had been shipped worldwide.
