Over 1 million PlayStation 4s have been pre-ordered worldwide, Sony has announced.

The figure was revealed during Sony's Gamescom press conference earlier this evening, where the platform holder announced that the console would ship across the US on November 15, and across Europe on November 29.

It isn't yet clear how the 1 million figure is split across each territory, or how it compares to earlier consoles or Xbox One.

If you haven't yet pre-ordered one, however, you likely won't get one in time for launch. Earlier this month, Sony confirmed that any PS4 pre-orders placed from August 6 would not be guaranteed for launch day delivery.

PlayStation 4 launches this November for £349.
