The PS4 has reached a new sales milestone. Sony announced in its latest earnings report that the console shifted 3.2 million consoles during the quarter ended July 31, which pushes the system’s life-to-date shipment tally to more than 82 million units.

The indie physics puzzle game Donut County is coming on August 28, across PC, PS4, and iOS. It will cost $13 on each, except for iOS, where it’ll be $5. Alternatively, you can save a few bucks on PS4 where a pre-order will be available for $10.49. That will net you a free PS4 dynamic theme as well.
