The holidays are over, and both Microsoft(s msft) and Sony(s sne) have numbers on how their latest-gen consoles have fared. In a blog post on Monday, Microsoft said that it sold more than 3 million Xbox One units by the end of 2013. And onstage at CES on Tuesday, Sony exec Andrew House said the company passed 4.2 million PlayStation 4 units sold on December 28. While it appears that Sony has the upper hand, there are a lot of factors in play to make it too early to call it the winner of these so-called “console wars.” However, it does show how hot both consoles have been running since their November debuts.
