Xbox One at 19M units sold EA confirms

EA said yesterday that PS4/Xbox One sales are at 55 million units worldwide. Since we know Sony has confirmed they’ve sold 35.9 million PS4s as of the end of 2015, this puts Microsoft’s Xbox One at a maximum of 19.1M units.

A year ago the gap wasn’t this big, Sony’s PS4 spread its lead in the US by outselling the Xbox during most of 2015 including November and December. Europe and pretty much the rest of the globe, PS4 outsells Xbox One roughly 2-1 and 4-1 in some countries.

It will be interesting to see how things go in 2016, how much bigger the lead Sony has gets or if Microsoft can close the gap a bit. Microsoft no longer reports sales data on Xbox hardware to the press so this is the best number we can get from them. Thanks EA!
