PS4 hits 7 million units sold, Xbox One hits 5 million units shipped

To go along with today’s NPD data, Sony has announced that they have sold 7 million PS4 systems to consumers. Not wanting to be left out, Microsoft also revealed today that they’ve shipped 5 million units to retailers.

Obviously there’s a key difference between these two numbers. One is sold to actual people and the other is sold to stores. I’d imagine the Xbox One is roughly 2 or 2.5 million units behind the PS4 globally at the time of this post.

Either way both consoles are selling well out of the gate and aren’t repeating the misfortunes of the Wii U and PS Vita so that’s a good thing.
