Earlier in the year, the company said it hoped to sell 5 million units by the end of the quarter, but it has easily surpassed that milestone with over 5 weeks to spare.
Next week, the console goes on sale in Sony's backyard, Japan, which should lead to another large boost in sales. So far, the console is available in North America and across Europe and Latin America.
Microsoft has seen strong sales for their new Xbox One, as well, but it appears to be falling back significantly with unit sales at 3.4 million (most recent estimate).
Nintendo's Wii U, released in November 2012 giving it a one year head start, has only seen 5.7 million unit sales, with the PS4 expected to surpass it next week.
