John Koller, VP of Marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America, announced today that PlayStation 4 global sales have now surpassed six million units following the successful launch in Japan just over a week ago.

"It's truly humbling to see the rate at which gamers across the globe are choosing PS4 as their next gen console of choice. Even more exciting is what happens when gamers power up their PS4s. In the United States, more than 90% of PS4s are online, enabling gamers to connect, compete and share their greatness with friends and fellow gamers," he said.

He added that "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% 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."

Sony had previously announced they were hoping to sell five million PlayStation 4 consoles by the end of their fiscal year, which ends on March 31.

The last we heard of Xbox One sales was when Microsoft revealed that three million units had been sold to consumers by the end of last year.
