The PlayStation 4 has sold more than six million units worldwide since its launch in November, Sony Computer Entertainment has announced.

“As you’ve probably read by now, cumulative PS4 sales have now surpassed six million units worldwide following the successful launch in Japan just over a week ago,” John Koller, vice president of marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment wrote on the PlayStation blog. “It’s truly humbling to see the rate at which gamers across the globe are choosing PS4 as their next gen console of choice.

“There have now been more than 3.6 million live broadcasts, and more than 56 million spectate sessions on PS4 through Twitch and Ustream. In fact, since January 1st, PS4 gamers account for 20 percent of daily broadcasters on Twitch. PS4 owners are also embracing the Share button on the Dualshock 4 Wireless Controller, with more than 100 million shares captured as fans show friends their latest achievements on Facebook and Twitter.”

Last month, the company revealed that the PlayStation 4 has sold 5.3 million units worldwide. The console launched February 22 in Japan and sold over 300,000 units in two days.

“Developers are beginning to take advantage of PS4’s new interactive live broadcasting gaming features, integrating modes that allow broadcasted gameplay to become interactive for spectators,” added Koller. “Even as a viewer, you can now influence livestreamed gameplay.”
