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.
