The two main consoles of this generation – the PS4 and the Xbox One – have had their fanbases at each others’ throats for some time. Forums and subreddits have been filled with people convinced that their console of choice is flawless, and the opposing one is lacking. While some people here might consider themselves a part of the Microsoft diehards that scream the praises of the Xbox One from the rooftops, the numbers recently leaked by EA seem to suggest that sales don’t reflect that superiority.
In a recent investor call from EA, CFO Blake Jorgenson told us that around 55 million current generation consoles have been sold since they launched just a couple of years back. While Xbox doesn’t publicly release their sales numbers, Sony pushes them proudly – the last figure we’ve gotten being around 36 million. Judging from that, we can glean that Microsoft has sold somewhere around 19 million units since launching the Xbox One.
