Sony and Microsoft launched their PS4 and Xbox One consoles respectively last November, with both companies providing updates this week on how they’ve been selling. Microsoft shifted more than 3m Xbox Ones by the end of 2013, while Sony revealed in its CES keynote yesterday that it sold 4.2m PlayStation 4’s in the same period. And while that may be ammunition for an army of gloating fanboy blog posts about Sony winning the next-generation console war, the bigger picture is of both devices enjoying a strong start in the pre-Christmas period, especially given the fact that they’re still available in a relatively-small number of countries. As we’ve noted before, both consoles ship with their own digital music services – Xbox Music and Sony Music Unlimited – although they have yet to open up to other streaming services.
