That's right, it's time for another salacious statistics dump, so you'd best get yourself nice and comfortable, as we're about to discuss some exceedingly exciting stats.
Are you ready? Good. First up, the Japanese giant's super machine has now officially sold 6 million units worldwide, which really ought to give just about anyone pause for reflection. What's more, the console's release in Japan last month contributed an impressive 370,000 units to that staggering total.
On the software front, the behemoth has sold a monumental 13.7 million titles, which includes both digital and retail versions. Of particular interest is the news that Guerrilla Games' stunning shooter Killzone: Shadow Fall makes up 2.1 million of those sales.
