What do you think of these numbers? Impressive? Let us know in the comments below.

  • Microsoft and Sony both have impressive numbers. I hate to say one beat the other, but Sony still beat Microsoft. The scary thing is Sony’s original games and big IPs haven’t even come out yet. They have a stunted first party library while Microsoft unloaded a lot of exclusives and still haven’t overcome Sony.
