ps4If eBay resell stats count for anything, Sony has the upper hand over Microsoft in the latest console war.

According to Baird market analyst Colin Sebastian, there have been about 65,000 Playstation 4’s sold on eBay, compared to just 33,000 Xbox One’s.


Sony’s advantage over eBay may be due to the general lack of PS4’s at retailers. A quick look today at online stores shows the Xbox One certainly more available than the PS4.

Or, as Duxter CEO Adam Lieb notes, perhaps the eBay stats indicate how much people are liking the Xbox One:

Demand for both the PS4 and Xbox One has been sky high. Earlier this month, Microsoft and Sony announced — one week apart — that they had sold 2 million consoles globally, and both companies said they sold one million consoles within 24 hours when the devices debuted in November.
