Sony's latest financial report reveals PlayStation consoles outsold Xbox systems three to one in Q1 2014.

The company does not confirm how many PS3 and PS4 consoles were sold separately, stating only that combined sales totalled 3.5 million units in the first quarter of this year. Comparatively, last year the company saw sales of 1.1 million in the same pariod.

Microsoft's financial report for this first quarter was announced last week, revealing total combined shipping figures for Xbox One and Xbox 360 sit at 1.1 million, meaning during the first three months of the financial year PlayStation outsold Xbox 3:1.

Sony has also confirmed ¥257.5 billion (or roughly $2.5 billion) generated in sales from Sony's Games & Network Services division, which is attributed to the launch of the PS4.
