Sony has racked up 23.2 million sales of its PlayStation 4 console, while Microsoft trails behind severely with just 12.8 million. Nintendo is actually not doing too badly, with 9.7 million Wii U consoles sold to date. If we shift over to monthly numbers, Sony continues to smack Microsoft around, selling 617,578 consoles while the Xbox One saw just 272,955 sold. Nintendo on the other hand didn't have a bad month, with 141,426 Wii U consoles sold.

With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
