PlayStation Beat Xbox In Sales Figures

There are many people who would no doubt assume that Microsoft’s console has beaten Sony’s equivalent in the war of sales figures, which is perfectly understandable considering the Xbox’s staggering sales in North America.

However, a new report called the “Worldwide Video Game and Entertainment Console Hardware and Packaged Software 2012-2016” shows us otherwise.  According to the report, the PS3 overtook the Xbox’s sales figure in the Christmas holiday.  The number of PlayStation 3’s sold has now reached 77 million while the number of Xbox’s sold is 76 million.

While that’s a small difference, it’s still impressive considering that the PlayStation had a later start than the Xbox. [DigitalTrends via GameInformer]
