PlayStation 4 sales hit 10M in blow to Microsoft’s Xbox

By Arjun Kharpal

Sony has sold over 10 million PlayStation 4 (PS4) devices, the company said on Tuesday, landing a major blow to console rival Microsoft’s Xbox One.

Jim Ryan, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe CEO, made the announcement at major gaming conference Gamescom in Cologne, amid a battle for dominance between consoles and mobile gaming.

Meanwhile, Microsoft’s Xbox One has sold around half of that at 5 million after the technology giant made an error with its strategy, according to analysts.

Microsoft has had an uphill struggle since it released its next generation games console to 13 markets including the U.K and U.S. in November 2013. The Xbox One was around $100 more expensive than the PS4 because it was bundled with Kinect, a camera that allows users to play interactive games.
