We now sit in the midst of the eighth generation of video game consoles, and we find ourselves in a very different place than we were in the previous, seventh generation, at least in terms of which console is selling the most units. As of now, Sony’s Playstation 4 has sold over 70 million units and is on track to sell more units than any of the three major consoles of the previous generation did by the end of this year.
It may not catch up to the Playstation 2’s 155 million, but it will almost certainly do the next best thing and outsell the original Playstation’s 103 million by the end of this generation. Microsoft’s answer to the PS4, the Xbox One, sits somewhere around 30 million, which isn’t terrible in a vacuum, but when compared to Sony’s numbers it appears dismal.
