xboxoneIn its quarterly earnings report released today, Microsoft announced that it shipped 3.9 million Xbox One consoles to retail channels during the three months ending Dec. 31.

Earlier this month, Microsoft said it sold 3 million Xbox One consoles to customers in its 13 launch countries. The company is still lagging behind Sony, which has sold at least 4.2 million PlayStation 4 devices. The PS4 did have an extra week on shelves, though, debuting Nov. 15.

Microsoft also noted today that it sold 3.5 million of its older Xbox 360 console last quarter.

The company’s earnings report reveals that its Devices and Consumer Hardware division saw revenues increase by 13 percent, largely thanks to sales of the Xbox One and Surface tablet. But as GeekWire’s Todd Bishop explains, the division’s profit decreased 14 percent from the same quarter a year ago due in part to the nature of the hardware business.
