Sony has sold more than 18.5 million PlayStation 4 consoles worldwide, the company announced in a press release today. According to Sony Computer Entertainment, 4.1 million of those sales came during the 2014 holiday shopping season, from Nov. 23, 2014 to Jan. 4, 2015.

The most recent official update from Sony on PS4 sales came last August, when the company said it had sold more than 10 million consoles through to consumers. In October, Sony's financial report indicated it had shipped 13.5 million PS4 consoles to retailers.

On the software side, Sony said 81.8 million PS4 games have been sold since the system's launch in Nov. 2013.

Sony also provided PlayStation Plus membership numbers, announcing that it had 10.9 million subscribers as of Jan. 2.
