War on console sales has begun. Sony claims more, Microsoft claims fastest
With both consoles releasing in November, both have sold an impressive amount. Sony reportedly leads with a higher total sold throughout the month, however Microsoft makes a bold statement saying that their console reached sales numbers much faster than the PS4. The numbers really can't stand out for much in just the first month as they both launched in different weeks.
With both manufacturers posting over 2 million units sold, it's hard to tell who is really in the lead, but with that full extra week, it's more than likely that Sony is ahead of Microsoft on total units. In the end, numbers don't really matter unless you are a shareholder or really want to be "that guy/girl" who plans on slamming your enemies in the console wars, but it is interesting to note that Microsoft was willing to post an exact sales number whereas Sony was not.
