70 million PS3 units shipped worldwide

15 million Move controllers also in customers' hands

Sony's PlayStation 3 has shipped 70 million units worldwide, the platform holder has revealed, putting it close to the 360's figure of 70 million sold to customers, which was announced earlier this year.

The distinction, between numbers sent to retailers and numbers in homes, means that Microsoft's machine is still a hair's breadth ahead in terms of userbase. However, that machine has been publicly available for an extra year - seven to Sony's six.

15 million Move controllers had also been sent to retail outlets across the globe as of November 11, Sony reports.
