As expected, just a day after Microsoft announced it sold 3 million Xbox One units by the end of 2013, Sony revealed that the platform holder had pushed out 4.2 million PlayStation 4 systems by year’s end, according to a report today from GameSpot.

Sony made the announcement at the International Consumer Electronics Show this week in Las Vegas, saying as of Dec. 28 they had sold-through to consumers 1.2 million more PS4 units than Microsoft with the Xbox One.

Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of marketing, strategy and business for Xbox, made the announcement yesterday, saying that with the milestone the Xbox One has “ushered in a new era of games and entertainment.”

However, Valve co-founder Gabe Newell shrugged off the Xbox One figures during a question and answer session at CES today, joking that “it it'd take a while” for Microsoft to catch up to the 65 million Steam subscribers.
