Gamers bought 1 million PS4 consoles on first day of sales
Sony has announced that one million PlayStation 4 consoles were sold during the next-generation system’s first day of availability in the United States and Canada.
“PS4 was designed with an unwavering commitment to gamers, and we are thrilled that consumer reaction has been so phenomenal,” said Andrew House, the President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment. “Sales remain very strong in North America, and we expect continued enthusiasm as we launch the PlayStation 4 in Europe and Latin America on November 29. We are extremely grateful for the passion of PlayStation fans and thank them for their continued support.”
According to Ars Technica, the sales numbers for the PS4 compare favorably to previous console launches. Last year, Nintendo managed to sell 400,000 Wii U consoles during its first week of release. While that count is less than half of Sony’s (and took six additional days), Nintendo considered it a sellout. Going back to the previous generation, Microsoft moved 326,000 Xbox 360 consoles in the two weeks after its North American launch in 2005, while Sony sold 197,000 PS3 consoles in the same two-week post-launch window in the US and Canada.
So I guess one million consoles in a single day is actually quite the accomplishment. Congratulations are in order to Sony.
