    EU launch could be bigger. I say 3.5 million by 2013's year end.

    Both systems were set to sell out at launch, if the XO yield is good they will be close, but by years end PS4 will be the clear leader. Yep.

    It's huge that they actually have units available at launch this time around. There were only what, around 250-300k PS3s available in North America back in 2006?


    "One big pile of PlayStation 4s for your mouth and my mouth! Yarrr!" If anyone understands this Adam Boyes reference, good on you.

    The top selling game is on PS4. You can pretty much count on a strong launch in the UK.

    I thought it was 1 million Pre orders worldwide. But one MILLION sales in one day in one country?! COT DAMN!

    If the other countries' PS4 launches are like this. Looking like 3 million worldwide sales by end of this December?

    Let's call it now, MS will not segment their day one sales figure for the US, They will only tout their Sale to the end of the week combining all territories to obscure any comparisons.

    Maths is biased! It keeps telling me the PS4 is 50% more powerful than XboxOne!
    Great song, should have more views :'(

    That's what I was wondering, too. How much did the PS2 sell in NA in the first 24 hours?

    Incredible sales all the same.

    Hmm, while this is really good news, I hope that Xbox One will sell good enough as well. We need that competition.

    Bear in mind that's the first month. The PS4's inclusion there is after 24 hours. Outstanding.
