Since the launch of the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Plus subscriptions have increased by 90 percent while more than 9.7 million PS4 games have been sold through retailers and the PlayStation Store, according to a report today from GameSpot.

Sony made the announcement today during the company’s presentation at the International Consumer Electronics Show, adding that PS4 users have also broadcasted more than 1.7 million streams from the next-gen console through services like Twitch and Ustream, totaling an estimated 55 million minutes.

Call of Duty: Ghosts, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, and Killzone: Shadow Fall rank among the most sought out PS4 games since the console’s launch in November.

The figures come as part of a greater reveal, as Sony announced today that the company had sold-through 4.2 million PS4 units by the end of 2013, roughly 1.2 million more than Microsoft with the Xbox One.
