SAN FRANCISCO (REUTERS) - Sony Corp said on Tuesday that sales of its PlayStation 4 video game console, launched in November, has surpassed 10 million units.

In April, the Japanese company said it had sold over seven million PlayStation 4 units as of April 6 and was struggling to keep up with consumer demand.

The console went on sale on Nov 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 three million units in sales as of the end of last year.

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