Microsoft sells 5 million Xbox One units, Sony is now in the lead

It looks like Sony is ahead with next-gen console sales, with 7 million PS4's sold compared to Microsoft's Xbox One selling only 5 million units so far

Sony has shipped over seven million PS4's to retailers and consumers, but today Microsoft has announced it has sold over five million Xbox One consoles around the world. This means that Sony is in the lead by two million consoles.




Considering both consoles have had some great exclusives, with Titanfall on the Xbox One and inFamous: Second Son on the PS4. There should be a bump in numbers when we see the sales of the Titanfall bundles with the Xbox One, but it is early in the next-gen console war. It should be an interesting picture after E3, and the holiday season at the end of the year.
