Sony is on hand at CES 2014 going on in Las Vegas right now showing off all sorts of gadgets, hardware, and other devices. During the show, Sony took the opportunity to brag about how well its PS4 game console is selling compared to the Xbox One from Microsoft. Sony says that it has sold 4.2 million PS4 consoles.
Microsoft has sold about 3 million Xbox One consoles reports Mercury News. Some of the improved sales for the PS4 compared to the Xbox One may be attributed to the fact that the PS4 is $100 cheaper than the One. The PS4 is also available in more countries than the Xbox One.
The PS4 can be purchased in 53 countries around the world whereas the Xbox One is only offered in 13 countries around the world. Sony has also announced that it plans to launch its PlayStation Now streaming game service this summer in the US. That streaming game service won’t be limited to the PS4 console. Sony has also noted during CES 2014 that the streaming game service will be supported on most 2014 Bravia TV models. A recent report by MCV also noted that the PS4 is outselling the Xbox One in the UK.
