The PlayStation 4 continues to dominate this generation’s console sales. Sony announced this week that their console has sold more 40 million units, while software on the console has sold more than 270 million.

“We are truly grateful for the enormous support from our fans and partners across the globe, which helped us achieve this significant milestone in such a short span of time,” said Andrew House, President and Global CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment in an official release  “We will strive to deliver even more exciting gaming experiences to our users, further driving the momentum and accelerating the expansion of the PS4 platform and its business this fiscal year by offering an unparalleled line-up of games, bringing our virtual reality system, PlayStation VR, to market and providing ground-breaking features and network services.”

There’s been a lot of speculation that Sony will be revealing a new, more powerful PS4 at E3 next month. That console is rumored to support 4K resolution.
