The Xbox One had a good surge during the latter end of 2014, but 2014 as a whole belonged to the PS4.

Sony told Gamespot via a statement that the PS4 sold more units globally in 2014. It was also the best selling console in 2014 over in the USA too.

Sony Computer Entertainment America said that they are humbled with the support of PlayStation fans. Sony managed to sell over 4.1 million units of the PS4 during the Holiday period. This included 123 countries and regions. Sony promises that 2015 will be even bigger and better than 2014.

It was revealed earlier this week that the Xbox One was the best selling console in the month of December in the USA. This is all thanks to Microsoft dropping the price to $350 and a strong first party lineup. This formula worked so well for Microsoft, the company is keeping the $350 price. Sales for the console have been too strong at the $350 price point. The console didn’t sell as many units when it was $400.

It will be interesting to see how 2015 fairs for both the PS4 and Xbox One in terms of sales. PS4 is ahead in terms of worldwide sales with 18.5 million units sold. Microsoft has shipped over 10 million units globally so far.
