As of December 1st, the PS4 has sold over 2.1 million units worldwide. Over 700,000 consoles were sold across Europe and Australaia across their launch weekends and when combined with the prior sales that the console gathered from it's North American launch, This is almost twice the amount of Xbox One consoels that have sold since the last time Microsoft reported in. If you remember, the PS4 and Xbox One were in a dead heat in sales when they first launched, but the PS4 had still yet to come out in European territories.
What does this mean for the "console war?" Not much to be true. It's just another feather in Sony's hat in its ongoing feather competition with Microsoft. Sony also managed to snag the title of "UK's fastest selling console" but the Xbox One snagged more Black Friday sales than the PS4 did. The PS4 fetched a higher price on the black market, but the Xbox One had over a million consoles in just 24 hours.
So who do you think will eventually win the console war. Hash out your flame war in the comments. I'll be over here playing my PS3 and XBox 360.
