At Gamescom 2014, Sony announced that it has reached a monumental sales number. In roughly nine months, ten million PlayStation 4’s have been sold to consumers. You read that correctly, sold, not shipped.
Not only is the PlayStation 4 very clearly winning the console wars, but it’s currently the fastest selling console of all time. Even though the Xbox One, which has sold at least five million units (that number is likely closer to six million) , is one of the fastest selling consoles of all time, it is lagging behind the PS4. It’ll be interesting to see how the rest of the generation unfolds, but as of right now, Sony is paving the way for a victory.
