Sony announced today that the consumers have bought more than 20.2 million PlayStation 4 video game consoles as of March 1.

Sony disclosed the numbers today during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, where big game companies are jockeying for the attention of tens of thousands of game developers.

Sony said the PS4 continues to be the fastest-selling console in PlayStation history. Microsoft and Nintendo haven’t disclosed numbers for their consoles lately, but it’s a fair bet that Sony continues to outsell them by a healthy margin.
