Sony dominates as PS4 sales top 30 million

Since the PlayStation 4 video game console first went on sale in November 2013, Sony has sold more than 30.2 million of them around the world.

Sony’s worldwide sales underscore the Japanese electronics giant’s lead in the console war. The PS4, currently available in 124 countries, continues to battle Microsoft’s Xbox One for dominance in the living room.

By comparison, Microsoft said that sales of Xbox One last year were 10 million. Microsoft hasn’t released an exact figure since November 2014. Meanwhile, sales of Nintendo’s Wii U, which was released a year before the Xbox One and PS4 in November 2012, reached 10.73 million as of September 30, according to the company.
