    It is good system.... The loading speeds alone makes it better then the ps3 so it is well worth the price and then some. This is 200 dollars cheaper then its predecessor and it runs far more smooth. I expect sales to get higher even with all the Xbox trolls saying they bought broken ones.

    Its how many have been sold, so all per-orders that have been paid for and shipped to the user count, any per-orders not yet shipped or paid for don't count.

    I'd heavily imagine so.

    I assumed it would be at least 1 mil in the first day.

    Must be worldwide, had heard the 1 million figure being bandied around a lot when people were talking about North America.

    If the yield would be good enough I think it could be about the same (or possibly a little better) number for Europe. But, sadly it's not. I pre-ordered in two different places about three and a half months before release and I'm not getting one. That's quite a difference between the US and the European market. In the US you could queue on launch day and get one, here there's alot of people who pre-ordered that won't get one. It will be interesting to see what the numbers land on after the Japanese release in february.

    1 mill is definitely a good sales figure but tbh I thought it would be higher, I'm thinking even the XBone will reach that figure in 24 hours maybe they will even sell more?

    I'm still unsure if I'm getting one around launch. I pre-ordered with Amazon only a few weeks ago just so I could get the confirmation email, (in the hope it'd give me an estimate for delivery) I didn't intend to keep the order I just wanted to get a rough idea of when it'd ship. I cancelled in any case. Then a few days ago Amazon sent me an email saying that since I had pre-ordered (it had been cancelled at this stage) I was eligible for limited stock bundles, so I bit the bullet and chose a Killzone one, since the wording made it seem like I would get it around release. They haven't sent an email yet detailing when it'll ship but we're still a few weeks away so I'll guess we'll see!

    Part of the problem is retailers bundling and jacking the price to over $600. I am sure that alot of people are scraping together money just to buy the console and having to pay the extra $200 is a hardship. Also, I imagine that some retailers are holding a supply for Black Friday so that they are assured to have at least some in stock to get people into the stores.

    1 mil is the highest in consoles history. It won't be passed by anything anytime soon. Also, remember this is NA only.

    PS4: Fastest Selling Console Ever

    12 more days til i get mine!

    According to Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida and Sony proper, the PS4 sold a million units in the first 24 hours that the system was available in North America. This news makes the PlayStation 4 the fastest selling console of all time, dethroning the previous king, the Sega Dreamcast.

    As Sega will tell you, a great start doesn’t necessarily mean long term dominance, but it is hard to argue with the great start the PS4 has seen. Not to mention the system is only available in one region so far, and since Japan is Sony’s home turf, one would expect large sales numbers in the 2014 release there as well.

    At any rate, the PS4 is off to a monstrous beginning, and Sony expects to see 5 million in sales worldwide by March 1, 2014. I think if the PS4′s availability holds up, we might see even larger sales numbers in Q1 2014.

    Sony President and Group CEO Andrew House had this to say about the North American launch numbers:

    “PS4™ was designed with an unwavering commitment to gamers, and we are thrilled that consumer reaction has been so phenomenal. 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.”
