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.
