SONY has announced that sales of its PlayStation 4 have hit more than 10 million units worldwide.

As of August 10, the figure had been reached the company said.

The Japanese giant added that it is showing the "fastest and strongest growth in PlayStation hardware history".

"The responses we have received for the PS4 system's unique gameplay experiences powered by the network, along with its vast game portfolio has been phenomenal, and I am absolutely delighted that PS4 was able to reach this commemorative milestone in less than 9 months," said Andrew House, chief executive of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.

"We're so grateful for the enormous support from PlayStation gamers worldwide, and we look forward to bringing even more exciting content and services in the months ahead."

The console went on sale on November 29 in the United States, Western Europe and Latin America, around the same time that rival Microsoft Corp's Xbox One was released. That console topped 3 million units in sales as of the end of last year.

Microsoft said in April it had shipped 5 million Xbox One units to retailers worldwide since the launch.
