The PlayStation 4 has sold an impressive 250,000 units in Germany since its launch on 29th November. In comparison, the Xbox One – which released a week earlier on 22nd November – has moved 100,000 units. The figures come courtesy of Media Control GFK, and track the period up to the end of December.

Sony's powerhouse has now sold a whopping 4.2 million units worldwide, comfortably beating Microsoft's total of three million next-gen units. Last year, the Japanese giant said that it hopes to sell five million systems before the end of March. It's on track, then.
