The Sony PlayStation business continues to be extremely successful for the Japanese electronics company, with the PlayStation 4 selling 3 million units during Q1.
Since launching in North America and Europe in November 2013, Sony has sold more than 25.3 million PS4 units worldwide. It's an impressive sales streak for Sony, outpacing the PlayStation 2, which took two years, eight months to top 20 million. The console eventually sold 155 million units, and currently serves as the top selling console of all time.
PS4 sales reveals steady - and strong - growth among gamers worldwide, and Sony estimates there will be 40 million console sales through the end of Q1 2016. We'll see what happens leading up to the 2015 Christmas holiday shopping season, which typically boosts game hardware and software sales for the industry.
