PS4 on track to beat PS2 as the best selling console ever

If we weren't too grown up to be discussing console wars we'd probably be announcing a winner and holding up an awkwardly parallelogram shaped belt right about now. In its quarterly earnings Sony has reported sales of three million PS4s in the last three months, taking overall sales to an incredible 25.3 million consoles.

This figure positively sails past the two years and eight months it took for PS2 to reach 20 million. Given that the PS2 went on to being the biggest selling console ever with over 155 million sold, I'd say this is some positive news. Plus, due to dropping production costs on the console, Sony's profits have also soared 350% with a 12% uplift in sales from the same period last year.
