Here are Sony and Microsoft’s reactions to Xbox One’s win over PS4 in December

Despite clawing its way back into the conversation at the end of the year, the Xbox One still hasn’t caught up with the PlayStation 4. The best-selling console of the generation is holding fast to its lead, but Sony knows that it wouldn’t take much to rock the boat.
