Sony (SNE) is winning the console battle over Microsoft (MSFT) as the PS4 outsold the Xbox One for the third consecutive month.
Over 7 million PlayStation 4 units have now been sold in the U.S. compared to 5 million of the Microsoft console. These figures apply only to consoles sold to retailers, not purchased by consumers.
Overall, both consoles have surpassed their last-gen equivalents. PS4 sales are up 94% compared to what they were five months after the launch of the PS3 back in 2007.
Meanwhile, Xbox One sales are up 56% over Xbox 360 at the same time post-launch.
SNE stock is down about 0.35% Friday and MSFT stock is down close to 1%.
