PlayStation 4 Sales Hit 10 Million Milestone

August 12, 2014 by

PlayStation 4 sales have doubled since February to reach 10 million units worldwide.

In an announcement at this year’s Gamescom, Sony revealed that the PlayStation 4 has sold a cool 10 million units worldwide, nearly doubling February’s impressive 5.3 million figure. Despite Microsoft’s attempts to catch up to the PS4 by removing mandatory Kinect from Xbox One bundles, the PS4 is still apparently outselling the Xbox One, although no specific figures have been giving regarding the latter’s performance since December 2013.

Meanwhile, the Wii U has reportedly sold almost 7 million units worldwide, noticeably less than the PS4, over which the Wii U had a one year head start. Thanks to strong sales for Mario Kart 8, the Wii U has seen a major increase in sales, while it seems that Microsoft’s “exclusive” Titanfall wasn’t enough to save the Xbox One from flagging public opinion. It doesn’t look like making Rise of the Tomb Raider an Xbox One exclusive will do an awful lot to remedy that.

Surprised that Sony is “winning” the “console war”? Irritated that your chosen corporate overlord isn’t winning? Waiting for SEGA to announce a surprise return to hardware and clean house? Let us know your thoughts on these figures.
