Sony has sold 40 million PlayStation 4 consoles to date, and expects to move 20 million more in its 2016 financial year.
Though the PS4 is the fastest selling console in the company's history, the PS2 still holds the sales record with 155 million units.
Selling 20 million more consoles by March 31st 2017 would be a remarkable feat, though it would only require 2.3 million more than the 2015 financial year's 17.7 million units.
That sales projection likely takes into account the upcoming, unannounced PS4 Neo hardware upgrade, as well as a likely subsequent price drop on the original PS4 hardware, and sales driven by the introduction of the PlayStation VR headset.
On top of hardware sales, Sony says 270 million PlayStation 4 games have been sold, via retail and digital.

Long-anticipated adventure game The Last Guardian will release in 2016, according to designer Fumito Ueda.
Speaking to Edge Magazine, Ueda said, "since this is the year we will see the game's release, I do have some worries, but I'm also very excited."

Prey2.com and Prey3.com have been purchased by the same company would-be publisher Bethesda used to buy domains for Doom and Dishonored, faintly indicating the firm's desire to either announce those games or to sit on the domains until it can.
Both domains redirect to a locked-out Facebook page for the time being.
