The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have been vying for the top spot in sales. Now, though, it looks like the PlayStation 4 may be coming out on top. The video game console has now sold more than six million units worldwide, following its launch in Japan at the end of February.

Although more than six million units sold is impressive, that's not all the PlayStation 4 has managed to accomplish. Sony VP of Marketing-Home Consoles and Handhelds John Koller stated that more than 90 percent of PS4s are online, according to Escapist magazine. That generally translates to more than 3.6 million live broadcasts and more than 56 million spectate sessions on the PS4 via Twitch and Ustream.

In all, 370,000 units have been shifted in Japan. The PS4 has also sped past Sony's sales target for the end of March, and 13.7 million games have been sold on PS4, according to Gamespot. That includes 2.1 million sales for Killzone: Shadow Fall.

"The responses we have received for the PS4 system's integrated social capabilities have been phenomenal, and I couldn't be more thrilled that gamers are utilizing these unique features to engage, share, play and connect with users around the world," said Andrew House, president of Sony Computer Entertainment, in an interview with Gamespot. "[Sony] will continue to expand the world of PlayStation by growing its library of breakthrough games and bringing more innovative features and services only possible on PS4."

But how does the PlayStation 4 compare to the Xbox One? That's a good question. Microsoft has yet to release official sales figures in the past few months. Yet it seems as if the PS4 is remaining on top for the time being.
