Sony is winning the console war.
The gaming giant posted its quarterly earnings report today and noted 3.5 million Playstation consoles sold worldwide — that includes both the PS4 and PS3.
During the same time period, Microsoft reported earlier this month that it sold 1.1 million Xbox consoles, which includes the Xbox One and Xbox 360.
That means in terms of consoles, Sony outsold Microsoft 3-to-1 last quarter. While we don’t know exactly how many PS4s and Xbox One’s were sold, it’s clear that Sony has the edge in the next-generation console race.
Meanwhile in the U.S., the $399 PS4 has outsold the Xbox One for the past six months. That includes June, despite the fact that Microsoft doubled its Xbox One sales last month after it began selling a $399 version of the Xbox One without the Kinect sensor on June 9 — a $100 price cut from the Xbox One with Kinect.
Sony today also reported Q1 profits of $43 million for its games division, an improvement from the $164 million loss in the year-ago quarter.
