Sony sold over 5 million PS4 consoles over the holiday period in 2015, but this doesn’t mean Microsoft were beaten either.

Microsoft didn’t release their official hardware sales numbers, giving no indication of who exactly won the sales war in 2015’s holiday period.

Microsoft did say that first party titles like Halo 5, Forza Motorsport, and Gears of War combined to sell over 1 million copies.

It has been revealed that Sony sold exactly 5.7 million PS4 consoles during the holiday period, taking the all time sales figure to a tick under 36 million since releasing back in November 2013.

In case you didn’t know, the “holiday season” for sales is measured between November 22nd and January 2nd.

Sony say that PlayStation Plus subscriptions have risen by 60% this year, while Microsoft has revealed that on December 28th 2015, more people logged into Xbox Live than at any other point in Xbox history.
