The PS4 managed to finish off 2013 at the top of console war. Sony’s next generation console managed to sell over 4.2 million units by December 28, almost a million more units than the Xbox One and close to surpassing the Wii U despite the Nintendo console’s one year head start.
Sony sold more than 4 million PlayStation 4 units in December, putting it on top in the console war with Microsoft, Sony announced at International CES 2014 on Tuesday. “As many of you are aware, we recently introduced a little product called PlayStation 4 to some great fanfare around the world,” said Andrew House, president and group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment. “It quickly became the largest console launch ever, selling over 2.1 million units in just two weeks. Today, I’m delighted to announce that the cumulative sell-through has now passed 4.2 million units as of Dec. 28.”
