Sony and Microsoft are battling it out for the consumer’s dollar with their PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles. Sony is feeling more confident now that it can match or even beat the shipments of Xbox 360’s. Sony recently announced that it had sold 9.2 million PS3’s in its last financial year.

The financial year ended on March 2008 and the 9.2 million units sold represents a 5.6 million unit increase over the previous financial year total. Sony also stresses that these numbers it is providing are actual consoles sold to consumers, not the number shipped to retail outlets.

Microsoft isn’t as forthcoming with figures and has only said that it has sold 19 million Xbox 360’s since it debuted in November 2005. Nintendo has shipped 25 million Wii's in the same period and could have done much more had Nintendo actually made enough of its popular console system.
