Thanks to EA, we know the lifetime sales of PS4 and Xbox One
What are the lifetime sales of the Xbox One? Well, 19 million units. That is, unless EA’s CFO Blake Jorgensen didn’t do his math right. Jorgensen revealed during last night’s financial call that the install bases for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have combined for a phenomenal total of 55 million units.
While we haven’t heard from Microsoft recently on the total sales for its Xbox One, Sony did report weeks ago that PS4 sales have totaled to 35.9 millions units sold.
Doing the math, we see that leaves about 19 million Xbox Ones sold. While it may pale in comparison to what the PS4 is doing, it’s worth noting that the Xbox 360 didn’t hit 19 million units until its 3rd year.
In fact, it took 4 1/2 years for the combined sales of Xbox 360/PS3 to reach what the Xbox One/PS4 have done in 2 years.
While me may have our console preferences, it’s refreshing to see the home console market thriving and performing ahead of its preceding generation of consoles. That is, if you don’t include the Wii to Wii U sales.
