Sony's console enjoys best quarter since launch

PS4 sales reach 13.5 million

Sales of the PS4 have now hit 13.5m units after the console shifted 3.3m worldwide in the quarter ending September 30th, Sony has revealed.

That’s up from the 2.7m shipped in the quarter before and the 3m shipped in Q4 2013, Sony’s sales data shows. In fact, it is the second highest only to the machine’s first month in which it sold 4.5m units.

Microsoft shipped 2.4m consoles in the last quarter. Note that not only does that represent the number shipped to retail and not actual sales, it has also not been clarified how that number divides between Xbox One and Xbox 360.

We’ve not had any firm Xbox One numbers from Microsoft since it said it had shipped 5m units back in April.
