PS4, Xbox One Have Combined For Around 60 Million Units Sold – Mad Catz

Sony getting the lion's share but not by as much as you might think.

Xbox One PS4

A new report released by Mad Catz financial officer David McKeon says that the Sony PS4 and the Microsoft Xbox One have combined to sell “about 60 million units” since the two consoles launched. That number is impressive on its own and is also about five million more than Electronic Arts claimed at the end of last month.

What we can do with the report, is get a general estimate as to how the console wars are shaping up. Sony reported last month that it had sold a little almost 36 million units since launch, as of January 3, 2016. Some quick math says that if you want to believe Mad Catz, Microsoft has sold anywhere between 20 to 24 million units since it launched. The last reliable numbers we have from Microsoft itself date all the way back to 2014.

Breaking it down, these numbers indicate that Sony is certainly winning the current generation wars when it comes to consoles sold, but perhaps by not as much as some were estimating. Industry analysts had been claiming the PS4 was outselling the Xbox One by a 2 to 1 ratio. If that 2 to 1 ratio was accurate at one point, it would seem to indicate the Xbox One has made up some ground. Of course, it may be quite a long time before we get official numbers on just who was winning and by how much, but speculation is interesting none the less.
