Sony on Thursday announced it has cumulatively sold more than 7 million units of its Playstation 4 console. Meanwhile, Microsoft has reported no real sales figures for Xbox One, but has announced 5 million units shipped to retailers since the console launched.
These numbers have renewed interest in the next-generation console wars, leading many to again question which of the three -- Playstation 4, Xbox One or Nintendo's Wii U -- has really come out on top. But ultimately, does it matter? The new generation of consoles can be considered a success for almost everyone involved (well, maybe not Nintendo), including especially consumers.
