Sony Computer Entertainment just sent in a press release mentioning that, as of April 6th, the PS4 has sold over seven million units worldwide.

In addition to that, we also learn that software sales reached 20.5 million as of March 31st, counting both retail sales and digital download.

The Share feature has also been extremely successful as well, with 135 million “shares” captured via the DualShock 4, while 4.9 million broadcasts have been performed on Twitch and Ustream, viewed over 90 million times. 

Andrew House, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment shared a rather delighted comment:

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. 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.

So far so good. Looks like the five million goal by March 21st has been overtaken by roughly a couple million. Definitely not bad considering that many still say that home consoles are dead.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
