ps4Sony announced a new milestone for the PlayStation 4 today, as the company has sold through more than 7 million consoles globally as of April 6.

On March 4, Sony noted that it passed 6 million consoles sold worldwide. The company, which launched the PS4 on Nov. 15, also announced today that more than 20.5 million copies of PS4 software has been sold as of April 13 — that’s 2.93 games per console.

Microsoft last revealed its total sales numbers in January, when the company said it shipped — not sold — 3.9 million Xbox One devices worldwide. The Xbox One debuted Nov. 22.

The PS4, now available in 72 countries, has cost $400 since launch. Microsoft priced its console at $500, but has since offered special bundle deals that technically make the Xbox One, which is available in 13 markets, cheaper than the PS4.

The NPD Group will release its monthly U.S. video game sales stats on Thursday, so check back tomorrow for those. The PS4 just edged the Xbox One in U.S. console sales in February.

    I’m shocked that Sony would release that number on the eve of the MS Quarterly report to its shareholders….

      You mean the quarterly report where they tell us how many Xboxes have been shipped to stores but remain rotting there because most consumers don’t want them, and trying to hide Xbox losses behind Android patent royalties? Yeah, that one.

      Dumb delusional fanboy.

    Sony said it has sold 4.1 million PlayStation Move units worldwide since
    the controller’s launch in September. In a statement announcing the
    sales, Sony said the figure “not only shows clear success of the launch
    of the new motion-sensing controller, but also indicates positive
    momentum going into the holiday season and to the year 2011.”
