The PlayStation 4 Sells A Million Units In Just 24 Hours

Over the weekend Sony announced the PlayStation 4, which hit retail shelves this past Friday in the U.S. and Canada, has sold more than one million units within the first 24 hours of its launch. Notice how they said sold instead of shipped, that makes the announcement significantly more impressive. This is a fantastic start for the new console, and I’m sure the solid launch line-up didn’t hurt.

The PS4 invades Europe on November 29th, hopefully it’s release across the pond will prove as successful. The same goes for the Xbox One, which releases on Friday, November 22nd. Both consoles deserve smooth launches.

    Yep, and now I have to play the waiting game for Dying Light and Outlast. Oh well, Battlefield 4 will keep me busy for a while!

    Isn’t that pre sold figures? Also did Sony anounnced their great launch failure too: PS4 ‘Blue Light of Death’?

    • Adam Dodd

      That’s units sold at retail, and I don’t think the blue light error can be considered a “great launch failure” seeing as it effects a very small number of PS4 owners.

      • Pav

        Small or not it’s launch failure. Don’t get me wrong, Adam but “units sold at retail”: this is information from Sony, isn’t? Or you have other, more reliable source of information?

          This is a pretty widespread news story. Not just Sony making the claim. Only .04% were reported to have the BLoD (as opposed to 33% of Xbox RRod). Stop coming here to hate.

            What are you talking about? Coming to hate? I’m not a kid. Simply they cannot get information like these from retailers so quick (i know what i am talking about, i am retail seller). And i don’t care if this is $ony or Micro$oft or any other $ company.

          • Pav

            Do you think i hate any console? It’s just a toy, don’t you know that?

          • Pav

            On the other hand with their money…They can get any information they want, that’s true.

  • Pav

    Anyway, i don’t care :). I’m not interested of buying any console. I prefer to upgrade my pc (in next two years, three maybe).

  • Blood-Sicles

    Awesome! I hate gaming on my desktop so when one of those PC horror games makes it onto the PS4, I’ll gladly shell out $400. Or when Evil Within releases, whichever comes first.

    • Adam Dodd

      I think Outlast is set to arrive on the PS4 in the spring. Daylight too, if I remember correctly. The Evil Within probably won’t come until the fall (though I could be wrong).

  • ThunderDragoon

    Fantastic news. Can’t wait to get my hands on one of these bad boys.

  • Fro$ty

    Good job sony. That is pretty amazing cause it doesnt include any shipped copies, which will be a lot of them. Cant wait to see where this console is at down the line next year, when I will be picking mine up. XD

    Who buys a next gen console on release?
