We recently brought you some sales figures from the PS4 versus Xbox One sales war, which showed Sony to be ahead in speed and units sold. They have now released some more official figures which show that they are already heading for the landmark of 5 million consoles sold.
Sony has announced their latest numbers at CES 2014, reportedly shifting more than 4.2 million PlayStation 4’s by December 28th. It would not be unreasonable to assume that Sony were close to selling their 5 millionth PS4, or having even passed this point already. When we last checked in with Microsoft we found that they had shifted over 2 million consoles.
Whilst the direct competition between the next generation consoles is conclusive in Sony’s favor, there is still plenty of time for Microsoft to recover the situation. It is likely that the $100 saving generated by choosing the PS4 over the Xbox One has been a big factor. Christmas sales went in favor of Sony, perhaps now the holiday season is over the sales patterns will change.
We heard today that several retails chains across the UK including GAME, were being replenished with limited amounts of fresh PS4 stock to help satisfy demand. Let us know what you think of Sony’s impressive sales figures and whether you bought a PS4 or Xbox One.
