Speaking at Sony's Tokyo Game Show keynote, SCE President Andrew House said his company aims to sell 5 million PlayStation 4 units by the end of the fiscal year 2013, i.e. March 31 2014. Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida confirmed on Twitter that the figure applies to the fiscal year rather than the calendar year.

Sony recently announced the PS4 is coming to Japan on February 22. The next-gen console launches in North America and Europe on November 15 and November 29 respectively.

Update: We've confirmed the figure applies to the fiscal year, which the post now reflects.
