The Xbox One saw some pretty good sales towards the end of the year when Microsoft reduced the consoles price. But overall the PlayStation 4 has had more success, becoming the most sold console globally in 2014.

According to Sony’s latest statement on Gamespot, the PS4 has sold more units globally. It is also the best selling console in the US as well. Sony has stated that they are humbled by their success and are grateful for the support they have received from the gaming community. The company has managed to sell over a staggering 4.1 million PS4 units globally during the Holiday season.

"We are humbled by this success and want to thank gamers worldwide for helping us achieve holiday sales of more than 4.1 million across 123 countries and regions. We are looking forward to another momentous year in 2015 and bringing an epic line up of titles to PlayStation fans around the world."

The Xbox One has not faired too bad either, becoming the best selling console in the US for the month of December 2014. This was largely due to Microsoft discounting the price of the console by $50 during the holiday season. In fact, the new $350 price tag worked so well, Microsoft has decided to keep it. The console initially did not sell much when it was priced at $400.

The PlayStation 4 has sold 18.5 million units globally while Xbox One has sold over 10 million but this all might change in 2015 with a new price tag and some exclusive game launches.
