PlayStation 4 has sold through more than 7 million units globally as of April 6, 2014, Sony Computer Entertainment has announced.

The console launched back on November 15 in the US, and is now 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 Andrew House, president and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. “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.”

PS4 software sales have also eclipsed 20.5 million copies across retail stores and through digital downloads as of April 13.

Sony had originally hoped to sell five million PS4 units by the end of March. The pressure is now on Microsoft to update the figure for global Xbox One sales, which stood at three million at the end of 2013.
