The PlayStation 4 continues to break sales records.
It looks like consumer interest in the PlayStation 4 isn’t going to subside anytime soon. After announcing last month that it has met its five million sales targets three weeks before schedule, Sony has announced today that it has sold seven million PS4 units. The seven million figure isn’t the number of units Sony has delivered to retailers, but is the number of consoles bought by consumers as of April 6 2014. In addition to hardware sales, Sony has announced that game sales (in-store as well as digital) are at 20.5 million worldwide.
The PlayStation 4 console is set to receive a major update sometime later this month. The update will allow users to turn HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) off, which will give users the ability to record gameplay via HDMI. A new video editor will also be available to users so that they can tweak their game footage before hitting the Share button. Gameplay videos can also be saved to a USB drive. In addition, Twitch and Ustream game broadcasts can be streamed at a 720p resolution with the new update. Sony has mentioned that the new update will be rolling out to users in the coming weeks.
