PS4 sold more than twice as many units as Xbox One in the last quarter



Sony sold a total of 3 million PS4 consoles between April-June 2015, more than twice as many units as Xbox One and Xbox 360 combined.

PS4 sales show no sign of slowing down as the console continues to dominate the market; with over 3 million consoles sold this past quarter alone.

Only 1.4 million Xbox console units were sold by Microsoft in the same three month period, 53 per cent fewer than PS4, but a healthy 27 per cent increase on the previous year. It is unclear how many of these units sold were Xbox Ones.

PS3 sales during the previous quarter are unknown, but sales of the last generation console have been steadily decreasing each year.

This unprecedented success has led Sony to increase its full year sales projections from 16 million to 16.5 million. The company has said before that it was genuinely surprised by the success of the console.

PS4 has consistently overshadowed its competition since launched in November 2013, shipping a total of 22.3 million units as of April this year.

Microsoft are yet to reveal recent sales figures for the Xbox One, the last update came in November 2014, when the company announced it had shipped close to 10 million units since launch.

Nintendo's Wii U has just passed the 10 million sales milestone, having been on the market since late 2012. The company’s latest console has admittedly struggle to gain a foothold, but has a dedicated fanbase regardless.

Sony launched a 1TB model of the PS4 earlier this month called the “Ultimate Player Edition,” although no official price cut has been announced for the older 500GB model.

It is amazing that the ps4 is selling so well without any marquee exclusive as well. Personally i think a big mistake on microsofts part was releasing in asia a year later than the ps4.

also it doesnt help that the xbox one is so sluggish. i hope they fix that when windows 10 goes to xb1

Xbox1 finally has a reason to buy it... promises of limited backward compatibility. Once someone saw the "water sprinklers in the field" while watching someone demo driveclub they never looked at the x1 demo the same way again. Suddenly the X1 was a games machine with bloatware that "sucked" the specs potential and lowered the "games" potential with it. Memories of the useless 360 kinect forced the first u-turn (and one ms should be glad happened, because the quality & number of games for that initially imposed on people folly would have been an increasing "annoyance" ) but it still seems that the x1 is having to give up "power" in order to be "yet another" "media centre" rather than a games machine sitting under a tv with other pay tv and streaming systems installed. So the big question is... CAN X1 EVER PRODUCE THE IRRELEVANT BUT AWESOME BACKGROUND SCENES like the PS4 can? That is the "which will I buy question" when you see them next to each other.

limited backward compatibility, really? you know they did this on 360 for about a week before they stopped supporting.
