Over 7 million PlayStation 4's have been sold worldwide as of April 6, Sony announced today.

Additionally, Sony noted that more than 135 million shares have been "captured" using DualShock 4's Share button and that Twitch and Ustream broadcasts reached over 4.9 million streams, with approximately 90 million spectate sessions.

"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," Andrew House, president and group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. said in a press release. "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."

In late January, Microsoft announced that the Xbox One sold more than 3.9 million units. Where their sales are at now remains to be seen, however we will let you know as soon as it's revealed.
