Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon pointed to the recent sales figures of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One by Sony and Microsoft as ammunition that the console gaming industry hasn’t kicked the bucket, according to a report today from GameSpot.

Boon took to Twitter after a Sony reveal today and a Microsoft announcement 24 hours before that showed the two platform holders had combined to push out more than 7 million Xbox One and PS4 units by the end of 2013.

“3 Million Xbox Ones + 4.2 Million PS4s = 7.2 Million next-gen consoles = Reports of consoles death have been greatly exaggerated! :)” Boon said.

Sony made the announcement at the International Consumer Electronics Show today, seemingly responding to Microsoft’s reveal. You can read that full Examiner report by clicking here.

However, not all seemed impressed with the next-gen console figures. Valve co-founder Gabe Newell shrugged at the Xbox One figures in a question and answer session at CES, joking that “it it'd take a while” for Microsoft to catch up to the 65 million Steam subscribers.
